In case you hadn’t already heard (and weren’t following along with her labor via Twitter), my dear friend Stephanie at Adventures in Babywearing had her sweet baby girl yesterday morning. Her name is Ivy LaRue, and you can see from her photo that she is absolute perfection.
I’m too sick to visit Ivy at the moment, but I can’t wait to finally meet face to face the little person in the belly that I’ve known for months. Steph had a home birth, so be sure to check back with her to read the story as soon as she posts it. Having two home births myself, I can tell you it’s an experience that is beyond words. Who uses “fun” and “relaxing” as a way to describe childbirth? Well, I did, and Steph did too this time around.
Go over and give her some love, along with the rest of the internets!
