Announcing Mavis Azure!

Born at home in the water at 6:15am on 7/3 (her due date, yesterday morning). She is 8 lb 13 oz and 21 inches long. Labor was about 7 1/2 hours. Everything went really well, except for quite a funky tear on my labia, which required some interesting stitches. She basically came out rooting to nurse and latched on right away. We've been resting and recouping. Eventually I will post our complete birth story. It was a really beautiful labor experience and I would love to share it with you all.

Welcome, Mavis! So happy to hear you both are doing well. Hopefully your tear heals good and doesn't cause you too much trouble.

Also I think you had the first girl of the group!

She's here!
And so are the boys!

How are things going with Miss Mavis? I hope that big sis and everyone is adjusting well. Miss your post around here but know it is with great reason you haven't been on enjoying that sweet babe!

i have been missing you ladies too, just crazy busy with life with a newborn, a 4yo, and a farm. finding time to check in has been impossible. big sis is doing great. she is so in love with mavis. the never ending kissing phase will eventually wear off, right? i am going to spend a half hour and try to catch up with all that i have missed. i still plan to post our birth story, but the finding-time thing has been my biggest challenge with everything.

Good to hear from you! You are certainly missed, but we know it's for a wonderful reason.
