Introducing Vegan Daughter

Just a wee post tonight to introduce Vegan Daughter. Sometimes I am sorry I keep things more or less anonymous on this blog because I would love to post a picture of something other than her feet. She is a real cutie (and that's not just dad bias! Ha ha!). Vegan Mom is doing well, but recovering from a C-section takes time. I am able to bring food to her so I have been making batches of veggie broth, vegan Jell-O, and chocolate and tapioca pudding for her to enjoy. And, our neighbours have been dropping off vegan meals for the the kids and my in-laws back at the house. How great are they?!

Congratulations! Great feet!

Congratulations on your little bundle of joy. It is always nice to hear when friends and family can pull together to help each other in times like this. She has beautiful little feet and I hope that Vegan mom recovers quickly. As a labour doula I have seen many cesarean recoveries and they take time to heal and return back to normal. I am sure all of your vegan goodies will help this process.

Soja said...

Congratulations to you and all your family! Hope everything heals up soon.

(We don't know each other, but I've been reading your blog for a while now :-))

beckiwithani said...

Congratulations!

Her feet look just like my daughters' did when she was a newborn. They aren't baby feet - long, lean, with actual arches and none of that chubby-baby-feet look. I bet she'll be tall.

julie said...

Congrats to you Vegan Dad, Vegan Mom and all the kids on your new baby. Her feet are so tiny and amazing! Sometimes it is nice to keep things to yourself, identity and all, since you can't take it back once it's out there. I hope her little vegan feet will take her on many wonderful adventures in life. You must be pleased as anything.

Melinda said...

Congratulations on the birth of your daughter!!!

I don't remember how I found this blog, but I am a long-time reader who dabbles in vegan and is *almost* a vegetarian!!! (I can't believe how far I've come!) I hope to someday make the full leap thanks to dedicated people like you who make it easier for us rookies!

Hope vegan mom has a fast recovery!

VeganLinda said...

Congratulations!!!!!! Quick healing and happy babymoon to veganmom! Your daughter's feet are adorable! I bet the boys love her already. I'm glad you have some help. Have fun being a family of six!

MsDerious said...

This is truly happy news.

Your blog is one of those ones that fill me with happiness, in that you so obviously care very much about each other as a family. I am pleased that you will have another person to love within your life, and through that giving of love, you will receive more within yourself :)

It also sounds like you have good neighbours, attracted by joy and love you create within your home.

Kris said...

Congratulations! A very speedy recovery to your wife. All the best :)

And by the way, you are lucky to have such thoughtful neighbours. Cheers!

agrajjag said...

aw, congrats to vegan mum and you.
i read your post when there were 0 comments and i didn't want to be the first - so i came back now and there are over a hundred! so many people wishing your family well.
and you really are fortunate to have neighbours like that - i'm not sure even my family would bring vegan meals.
stay strong over the next few months, look after yourself, and make sure everyone else does everything else for vegan mum!

Melody said...

congratulations! She has beautiful feet :) Those toes will be great with toe rings someday! (Just think, she'll be a vegan she-teen one day...) I love your blog by the way. We're not vegan (gasp!) but I tend to cook more vegan meals than not...I know, why not just switch? Long story :-)

Anne said...

Oh-welcome vegan baby!

Sue G. said...

Oh Yay! Congratulations!
