Things have been pretty hectic (you know, new baby and all.. ), but I finally have some pictures and a name.. Phoenix Rhain (pronounced RAY-in). I am in love and in awe.. I will post a birth story soon. I can't thank all of you enough.. You have been so wonderful.


WARNING!! I am naked in these!

Those are BEAUTIFUL!!! Don't expect them to last long on photobucket though, they don't like birthing mamas unless they're dressed...

Thanks for sharing, I love them!!

Well heck, just transfer them over to Flickr then.

Wonderful photos, thank you so much for sharing them with us! I like the ones of you kneeling especially, because it shows how close you are to the ground. You don't happen to have gotten any photos of the baby just upon emergence?

By the way, awesome tattoos you have there.

I wasn't aware of photobucket policies.. I'll have to look into flickr. Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of him coming out.. It was just my husband, my son, and my friend, Crystal. Steve was catching, Aramis is only 2 (and was busy illuminating my crotch with a flashlite ), and Crystal was holding me up.. I was squatting with her behind me, arms under my armpits when he came. It was the absolute best position for me while pushing. During the rest of hard labor I was on my knees, and have the rug burns to prove it! I was crawling around and roaring like a lion . Anyhow, there were no hands to take those pictures .I wish I had some. Oh, and he wasn't big, actually. The day after his birth we had him weighed, and at that time he was only 6 pounds, 11 ounces, 19.5 inches.

Congratulations! I don't really belong over here, I just like to lurk, but I had to tell you your pictures are awesome! Especially birthedit2 and birthedit9. Both of those really tell a whole story. I love your kids feet in the one pic, and how your son is cradling the new baby with his legs and looking at him so intently. You should submit that one to Mothering and try to have it published

Those are great pics. I love the one of your ds1 that looks like he is watching for the babe to come out, it's so precious. The one of your older ds holding his baby brother is beautiful!

What a beautiful peaceful birth!

Looking at those pics I couldn't help but think of these nursing bras I once saw that had bright colors under the flap to keep babies interest when nursing...
Well...you have no need for those bras cause your beautiful "skin art" is sure to keep ANY baby's attention!
What a beautiful family! Enjoy your babymoon!
