He’s here! Our fourth child– joined the family on December 22 at 8:34pm. He was born at a birth center in a quick, natural birth. I was supported by my husband, a midwife, a nurse, and a doula named Amy. We were a good team, and I’m thankful for all the hands that helped to welcome our son into the world. I deeply wanted to give birth at home (planned this time!), but when we were making decisions about this birth, I didn’t know if we would have a home yet. Therefore, we planned for the free-standing birth center, and I can now say that it was the next best thing. The environment was simple and private. That is pretty much all I need.
And now, I feel like our new life has begun. For real. We have our new baby, our new house, and a spankin’ new year ahead of us. I wanted to share my New Year goals here, but I feel a little silly. Let me simply say that my goals are specific, measurable, and attainable. No crazy pie-in-the-sky aspirations for me this year. I’ve divided them into 4 categories, using the aims of my sorority (Alpha Sigma Alpha) as a framework. They are Intellectual, Spiritual, Physical, and Social. As the year progresses, I’m sure that I’ll share little tidbits of my plans and my progress.
For now…feast your eyes on this bundle of Christmas sweetness…
