Thankful Thursday – She’s Here!

 On Saturday, May 17th, Zoe came into the outside world. God blessed me so tremendously not only during this labor and delivery but through out the entire pregnancy. The pregnancy and especially the birth has bonded our family in an indescribable way. I am so thankful for my amazing birth team and the wonderful opportunity to birth in my home — what a blessing.  I hope to share more of my home-birth experience soon but, for now, pictures.

A few moments after her birth Josh was able to read Proverbs 31 to her. Some of the first words she heard (out of the womb) were God’s Words.

Part of my amazing, awesome birth-team. Missing is my doula, Melissa, who was incredibly supportive and helpful. I don’t think I could have done it without her! From left to right: my midwife, me, Josh, and my midwife’s student.
The people on the birth team that live with me! 🙂

  1. 1. Do you know that your blog is labeled religion? The firewall at work says so.
    2. No pictures of Rylee and Zoe have surfaced?! Did you get rid of a child to make room for another?
    3. Can your family get any more adorable??
    4. I hope Trixie fulfilled her duties properly being on your birth team.
