Welcome Qylus

 

Say hello to Qylus, who arrived yesterday morning.  He sure kept us on our toes the past few days, wondering when he’d finally arrive, but once he decided it was really time he came quickly.

Like most of his big brothers and sisters, he was born gently in the water and into his daddy’s hands.

He was born still wearing most of his recently-vacated “home”, the amniotic sac.

Weighing in at 7 lb 9 oz, he’s the biggest baby in his family but they’re all just as adorable!

Welcome Averley

Meet Averley Mae, who joined us last night, weighing in at 7 lbs 8 oz.

She was born so gently and peacefully, guided into the world by her mom’s hands, in an absolutely amazing birth.

Congratulations to mom and dad,  a very excited big sister and a couple of wonderful grandmothers!

Welcome Ben

Meet Benjamin, who arrived early this morning.  He’s 8 lbs of perfect squishniess and looks a whole lot like his big sister, who is going to be so excited to meet him.

With a great support system at her side, mom labored beautifully and powerfully while never losing her terrific sense of humor.

Congratulations to everyone!

Welcome Braden

Say hello to Braden. He was born so very peacefully and gently into his mom’s hands in another beautiful water birth.

His birth is the fifth in his family that I’ve had the privilege to attend. His mom is always amazing as she quietly waits and works and then eases baby into the world.

He’s a tiny but feisty 5 lb 15 oz.  And with six older brothers and one big sister, there will be no shortage of love and attention in store for him!
