Lovely Little Evelyn Eileen

Probably as I wrote last Friday the birth was happening...

Eldest and his Lovely Lu had a beautiful home birth, with midwives and a doula in attendence.

Evelyn was 6lb8oz, and squirmy from the get-go, rooting around and wiggling. A good survival instinct, she has.


Today she is 4 days old, and Mama Lu's milk is in, her nipples are sore and the new family is managing beautifully. 

Gratified.

And Karen, I know exactly what you meant when you said the circle was complete... I thought that on our way home on Sunday night.

Mimi has muffins to bake tomorrow, and tiny baby pants to sew.

  2. yep, those weren't just words, they are a FEELING.
    I had that feeling when my first grandchild was born. He's now a lanky 21 year old working a real job in Hamilton. Time flies when we're holding them close.
    She's a doll! Congratulations.
