Ladies-

Thank you all so much for looking and well wishing!


Some more pics added here

Not enough time to write the story yet, but a few notes:

Salting a placenta is messssy. Dont do it! It makes the fluids inside leach out. {Duh! } Great for jerky- , not good for something you are hanging out with. His cord is 3/4 dry, I expect it to drop today - early tomorrow {2nd-3rd day} Impressive, and clean. Easier than I thought it would be. We will be putting up a lotuc birth for dummies web page of sorts-- with lots of pics, and how to's, and things to try and not and why we think so. I was disappointed in the lack of web resources with nitty gritty facts & pics.
***reducereuserecycle - if you want to help/colaborate, pm me

We have carried the placenta in : the flannel bag I made, a ziplock bag, and wrapped and pinned in 2 prefolds. Best option thus far - prefolds in the placenta bag.

Flip baby soon- I have a habit of having babies that think they oughta stay up at night after they get here. Keep them up during the day so they sleep more at night asap.


We are going to the chiro today, all of us : woohoo a party! But only me, baby and dh are being seen. They are real laid back people, like grandparents. He has 6 kids of his own.

Big babies rock! He is so beautiful!

I love the naked big sister pic, I imagine my DD will be naked for her siblings birth too.

Enjoy your babymoon!

Well- she wasn't naked till I got out of the tub. And now- everytime I take my shirt off to nurse, she gets naked and all up in it with us too. I don't tandem nurse {did with her and boy before...too much for me!} But she might as well be offering her breast.

His cord is looking fabulous, and looking like it will drop off tonight or tomarrow morning-ish.

I have to admit - I have kept the cover of the cord safety/diaper pinned to the front of the cloth diaper he has on, so it doesn't get pulled too hard or, etc. Well-- 2 times this am, {once while still pinned to the dipe, once NOT pinned } while getting ready to go to the chiro- I was holding him, and the placenta took a suicide dive off of him towards the floor and gave a good yank on it. . He cried for a minute or two, but was ok, and after that - it actually looked as if it may had done some good to help the healing of it. ? So- I know its oks- it was supposed to happen.

So- as I delivered him, I felt like there were about 20 people behind me in the room. what? my dh in the tub with me, my 3 kids, whos energy i was not feeling present, and my mom and best friend. I kept racking my brain...who was here? Did someone come and leave? WHO was here? huh...

And then I remembered. After I had him and went potty, {about an hour}, I saw my grandfather. And my great grandmother. My whole family {that has passed on} was here, watching over our Sebastian and me. our angels were watching, our friends from years past. What a sublime complete feeling. They were all here watching over us. Do you see how utterly bright it was in the room in the pictures? All the blinds were half drawn or shut...


LOVE is beautiful.
