...or a big girl to be precise! are you sitting down? 11 pounds, 6 ounces! born at home in the water this morning at 4:25 into her father's hands.

Introducing Akasha Rose:

Akasha is the Sanskrit word meaning "aether" in both its elemental and mythological senses. In Hinduism Akasha means the basis and essence of all things. The source of everything that exists. It is one of the Panchamahabhuta, or "five great elements"; its main characteristic is Shabda (sound). In Hindi the meaning of Akash is sky.

Rose is Ron's mom's name, and was also the name of my step-grandfather's mother.

The birth story I wrote is really long, so I am just going to give the link:
http://mama-neomia.blogspot.com/2008...rth-story.html

And a few more pictures:
Just needs wings.
