I apologize for the lack of blogging – between Luke’s birth, our October Perfect Health Retreat, and other obligations, the last three months have been hectic. But everything has gone very well, life is returning to normal, and I will resume blogging soon.

The activity may have tired him out a little:
Can’t get enough baby photos? I’ve posted a few more on Facebook.
