We welcomed Calvin Cedar into our family on February 6th, 2015. The build up to his birth was long and somewhat stressful, but once he decided he was ready things went quickly. Calvin was born at home in what was one of the most beautiful, empowering experiences of my life. Our midwives are my new heroes; I have so much respect for their knowledge, experience, and compassionate care.
We have been tucked safely in the new baby bubble for almost 2 weeks now and are so in love. Sleep deprived and desperately in need of a shower, but very happy indeed.
Big Sister Georgia is also doing well. She didn’t want to get too close too fast to this new alien baby in our home, and we didn’t push her. She would cautiously approach him, ask a question or comment on his smell, and be gone. We’d read a story or share a snack in bed with the sleeping baby, and she’d steal looks here and there. After a week she was ready to hold him, and hasn’t wanted to stop since!
I’m thrilled that you’re here in our arms, Calvin. Welcome to the family.
