Here's the pictures

Moments after birth. The woman on the right is my midwife, on the left is one of the students.

The first weighing with the curious big sister looking on. I always thought these scales were so darn cool, I made a point of having someone take a picture of this moment!

Nursing for the first time.

Our family! This picture was the morning after the birth. Please excuse the disheveled mama with the delerious smile! Iris thought it would be funny to wear Eloise's baby hat.

My little sweetie. I can't believe how in love I am with her. It was so hard for me to imagine loving another human being as much as I love Iris, but alas, it actually is possible!


  1. OMG you had the baby! At home! How unbelievably awesome and beautiful she is!

  2. She is beautiful.

    Congrats on the homebirth!

  3. She is beautiful! So are you and Iris. You three make a wonderful family.
