Pictures Of The Amazing

WARNING: If you don't like to see butt cracks or amniotic fluid, do not look at these pictures.....these photos would not be for you. :)

On the morning of March 10th, my labor started. And I remember looking at our baby's future bed thinking that it would be filled soon with a squiggly new life.......our child.

As labor progressed, the midwife checked often for a good heart rate. Everything looked and sounded great. The contractions were far and few between but oh, so strong.

I am nearing transition and it is now March 11th....later in the day. I have watched movies, heard and told bad jokes, tried different laboring positions, been in and out of the birthing tub and was wondering how much longer I would have to wait to see my baby. It has already been over 24 hours and I am exhausted. I have rested very little but my friends and midwife keep me encouraged.

My water has broken.....finally. I start to have urges to push. My "squeeze team" swoop down time after time to deliver comfort that I don't think I could have lived without. To even look at this picture brings tears to my eyes as I realize how good the Lord has been to provide such friends. They were God's hands on this day. They were amazing......

This is an incredible picture......

A girl!!!!!!!!!

Sarah!! You are beautiful!!!

Oh the relief that the labor is over and she is here.....she is finally here.

Need I say more?

  7. I simply LOVED looking at ALL the pictures. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Oooooh, Thea, all the pictures are good, but I just love the one of siblings holding the new bundle. Brings so many memories flooding back. We went to the hospital to see my dad on Monday, my kids' first trip inside a hospital, ever. We talked about how hospitals are wonderful if you need them, but staying home is so much better. What a blessing to be able to welcome your sweet baby in your own home, surrounded by those who will love her most. Congrats, again!

  9. Thea, I love you... you are soooooo my hero. Enjoy that baby-moon and give her extra special snuggles from her Auntie Jeni. <3
