Congrats on a beautiful, strong, healthy girl!!
What a beautiful birth story - just what I am hoping for, to give birth quietly while dd sleeps!
I totally relate to your comment about not doing this again, as sore as you are now! Almost immediately I had the urge to tell DH about the LadyComp I'm planning on getting for NFP/FAM, which is apparently really good for helping ttc OR *avoid!* A few days later (and now nearly 2 weeks later) I'm more open to considering the possibility of another... in a few years... and if I can guarantee a GIRL!
Enjoy your two beautiful girls!!

The first thing I said after my biggest child was born (and I think she's only got that title for another day or two until baby Jackson arrives!) was "wow, that was so much eaiser than last time!". She weighed 2 pounds more and was 2 inches longer than my first child. But she was a home waterbirthed baby. So I totally get how it was easier even though she's a big girl!
Thanks for the encouragement on birthing my big overdue boy!
You rock Mama! What an amazing Birth! Wow.
Happy, happy Babymooning!!!!
