We share a birthday! And she was the best birthday present ever. I’m writing up her birth story and will post it Monday for the Birth & Parenting Series. She came at 9:17pm and was 7 pounds, 6 ounces, 20 inches long. We birthed in the water at St. Joes with our wonderful midwife, fabulous doula, and caring nursing staff. AA was a stellar labor coach and it was amazing to finally meet our little girl, SweetPea.
She’s living and sleeping with us in our room, but her nursery is ready for her! We put the finishing touches on the nursery this past weekend. The toy chest & dresser were acquired back in the 70’s for my eldest sister, the rocker from that era as well, the crib a hand-me-down from my sweet aunt, the mobile was mine from back in the day, most of the little girl clothing from my sister!, and the quilt one I made for her in the past few months. Whew! Fun!
