I finally finished typing Livia's birth story today. You can read it here: http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1273540. I'm not a huge fan of hospital birth in general, but a home birth wasn't an option (because we live in the middle of nowhere). I went into this feeling like I was making the best of a bad situation, but the labor/birth ended up being freaking awesome

And here is a link to my sporadically updated album of newborn/toddler photos:http://gallery.me.com/henryjames#100722.

That is awesome mama! Love the part where your Doc is so cool about delivering the baby as you did . I had a really great hospital experience with this baby too...but my Dr. wasn't into trying new (tho, old really) things and that really would have thrown her for a loop. Congratulations! Both of your babes are gorgeous.
