One Year Ago

One year ago this morning, I had labored most of the night in our bathtub, surrounded by my amazing birth team and family. One of my doulas said, "Look! The sun is rising!" And so it had - the light was gradually dawning through the darkness. And at 6:47 a.m., after 7 hours and 11 minutes of labor, our baby was born into water into the waiting hands of his daddy. Thank you to our amazing midwives who guarded and guided us, our doulas who encouraged us, and to my husband and son who accompanied me through our second labor journey. Happy First Birthday, sweet baby!!


  1. Happy birthday! Have you heard anymore about how he is doing? I mean, I understand if you're not going to post it on your blog but (especially after actually getting to see you again a couple weeks ago) I'm kind of curious.

  2. Hi, Kristina! I've been needing to blog about that (no answers yet), so I'll do that quickly right now!


I love to hear from you! All kind and thoughtful comments will be published; all inconsiderate or hurtful comments will be deleted quietly without comment. Thanks for visiting!
