After months and months of telling everyone what a late baby I was going to have, John Richard surprised us all and arrived a week ahead of schedule!  8lbs15oz, 21.5 inches long, perfect!  We had a very hard but ultimately beautiful home birth and I caught him myself.  Everyone is recovering well and John is a champion nurser!  294442_10150333036214102_502989101_8236444_1127420266_n.jpg

Yay! Welcome baby John! Congrats, mama. He is beautiful. 


Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!
