Alhamdulillah, superbly on May the 4th — Star Wars Day, a Friday and the start of the Supermoon — baby wood turtle was born!

Eryn attended the birth and was an absolute superstar — at times asking the attending where her baby crocodile was. And then within moments, her little sister announced herself to the world.

Outside of some lack of sleep, we’re all doing wonderful. I’ll post a birth story shortly — and keep an eye out for some excellent guest posts coming up in the next few weeks too.

Thank you everyone for your well wishes and prayers.

Much love from all of us!

We forgot to bring a baby hat — so we dressed baby wood turtle in my hijab. Heh.
