Homemade Baby Wipes

Once upon a time, I used homemade spray with baby washcloths for our baby wipes. And it worked great! Every diaper change, we would spray the washcloth and wipe Nim's little booty. But, convenience got the best of me, and we began using more and more store-bought wipes. And that can get pricey. Especially with a little girl with very sensitive skin. We could only use Pampers Sensitive wipes.

Bringing Home the Girls

Today was it!
The day we brought home our girls!

Less Than 2 Weeks

Less than 2 weeks.
9 days to be exact.
That will be the day that our dreams are starting to become just that much more real.
9 days, and we will be getting our very first homestead animal. One that is seemingly quintessential to being a homesteader. That lovely, chirpy kind of animal.
I am of course talking about chickens!

Welcome to Wildwood Acre

Hello! And welcome to Wildwood Acre. Let me start off by introducing myself. My name is Sonny. I guess that I would identify myself as a wife, a mother to a wonderful little girl, and.... Well, I'm still working on the rest. You see, it took me until recent years to ask myself "Who am I? How do I want my life to feel? What is it that I need to be the person that is in this body, the one that is in my soul?" That's what this journey is for, I suppose. I have always been called a hippy, eccentric, unique. But, what does that mean to me as a person? I am finally beginning to answer these questions! With the help and love of my husband, Cohl, and the will of my daughter, I am now in the middle of finding who I truly am in this world. And it is feeling great. All the mush and gush aside, Wildwood Acre is a blog for sharing our life and journey through our new home, the choice of beginning a homestead, and living just a little bit closer to the earth. This is our journey, our way.
