At 2:14 am on Thursday Sept 3rd, after just over three hours of active labor, my beautiful boy was finally born, by candlelight, in the room he was conceived in, into his daddy's hands.. The pain was mindblowing, out of this world, and worth every second.....intense, yes, painful too, but totally without any negativity, fear, or intervention.....just the loving hands of his daddy.....he is so beautiful and perfect in every way, just a life altering, magical, and yet so perfectly normal human experience. I have been doing a large smoothie with chunks of fresh placenta every day, and have had the smoothest recovery and FASTEST out of all three babies, and this one is my biggest babe! He's nursing, pooping, has already gained 4 ounces, and I just love life right now. It feels amazing.
We're in love. He's 7lbs 10oz and 20inches long.
