Celebrate and Breathe

austin-and-mom1I have been celebrating the birth of Austin, my second grandchild, on March 26 at 8:07 am. He weighed in at 9lbs 3 ozs and is a real cutie. He was born at home with Mom, Dad, 2 midwives and myself. It was cool being on this side of the contractions but it was a long night.

How amazing. What a miracle. I have been staying with the kids and doing some little things to help them out. What a way to take my mind off of my trip. At this very moment I can’t imagine leaving him behind BUT, I want to send thanks to my friend Leslie who said, “Breathe him in so that you can carry him with you when you go on your adventure!”

So, I am cuddling and breathing in deeply.

    Aren’t I suppose to get an email saying you have posted soemthing new or am I just making that up in my head. Just a heads up in case that is suppose to happen because I didn’t get one I just happen to go snooping!

    Another aside I wish they had spell check on these things this is probably full of spelling mistakes…oh well.

    Thanks so much for the link. My dear friend, with whom I just shared my first white christmas with in Boston, is a leading light in the world of home birth midwifery. Nancy Wainer is her name, and she has written a few books on the subject. In the early hours of Christmas morning she went out to accompany a family as their beautiful son came into the world. It was wonderful to celebrate a new life as we shared Christmas for the first time.
    How amazing to live your dream. I look forward to hearing about your adventure. And just think how wonderful it will be to tell your grandchild all about your travels. When he gets to school he will have one of the coolest grandmas around.

    Lovely photos, Vicki! We’re walking this (little) part of the journey together, cuddling and breathing in. Isn’t it wonderful.
