i'm erica (24), wife to josiah (26). we've been married for five years, but we've been together for ten. we started dating when i was the ripe old age of 14.
we are a quiverfull family, and so far we have two beautiful boys this side of heaven. josiah is three-and-a-half, and was born in a free-standing-bc, in the water, w/a mw (for all practical purposes, it was a hb, just in someone else's home). jonas is 18 months, and was born at home, in the comfort of our bed, in pretty much the same place that he sleeps every night
(he was supposed to be a wb, but we had some complications w/the thermometer). we also have one baby in heaven, jabez, who we lost to m/c at ten weeks in 2004, just prior to conceiving to josiah.
i'm currently going through the applicancy process to become a lll leader, and i hope to one day become an ibclc. i'd also like to be a doula, but i think that it's going to be a long time before my youngest baby is going to be old enough to be left w/o me long enough for me to attend a birth.
my husband is in a heavy rock/metal band (link is in my siggy), so we spend a lot of time being involved in the music industry. he is also the sound engineer at our church and he runs a recording studio with our bil. by day, he's an auto body estimator at an auto body repair shop. he's just a little
other than that, we spend our days unschooling (i don't know if that's the ultimate plan for us or not, but since josiah is still in preschool, it's what works for now), raising laying hens, growing lots of veggies, teaching our children about christ, and trying to find more hours in the day (which might be easier if i wasn't so interested in making elaborate meals every night, but i'm greek, so it's my duty!).
i think that's it.
