Yes, it’s been a long silence on this end. Baby decided to wait 11 days after his due date, and my mind was not functioning quite normally, then he suddenly got in a hurry Sunday evening and arrived after only 2 1/2 hours warning! Recovery has been slow, but he’s quite worth it all. Everyone is thoroughly enjoying having a baby in the house once again. They fight over holding him at times. Next oldest adores him; anytime he has the privilege of holding baby he laughs and laughs! He’s only tried carrying him once so far…all the way down the hallway from our bedroom to the kitchen! He got told off pretty sternly; hope he learns his lesson without doing it again.
All the children were thrilled to get to hold him just an hour and a half after he was born!Why I love homebirth: immediately after he came I was able to clean up and crawl into my own bed with all the family around!
