Ginger was born at home on Thursday, August 4th. She was almost eight pounds—bigger than her two sisters were.
Zoe and Ashley were such big helpers. They filled the birthing pool with warm water (barely in time!) and brought me drinking water with a straw. Andy rubbed my back and comforted me.
I had three midwives, and they made me feel so secure and loved. I cried tears of joy.
I don't think Zoe and Ashley have ever been so happy as they were at Ginger's birth and these past few days with her. There is so much love here.
Thank you all so much for your congratulations on facebook :-) It means so much to share with you.
The next two posts I have lined up are recipes I made and photographed before Ginger arrived. After that I have some great guests scheduled, while I take time off with baby :-) But I'll probably show you more pictures between guest posts.
