Baby girl is here!!! At 9:19pm, on July 16. Miss Lydia Anne weighed 9lbs 3oz and 19 inches long. We've had a baths, nursing like a champ, and I can't stop crying!!! Such a little blessing! Even though it was a rough 2 1/2 weeks over due, I'd go through it all over again. As a child people asked what I wanted to be and without hesitation I'd say "A momma." God has answered the desires of my heart.

CNM's were great, no tearing so I should heal quickly considering Lyddie's size!!! DH was my rock. He never got to witness a vaginal birth with his boys, so a home birth(legal with CNMs) made it extra special. Step sons are already arguing how long the other has gotten to hold Lydia.
Thanks for all the encouragement and advice!! DH and I had fun trying to get Lydia here :)

Side note: I was not ready for the next level of emotional intimacy with my DH. After the birth, during hours of just cuddling led to some deep talks. Going through childbirth has brought us even closer, something I didn't think could happen. So do what you have to do, kick everyone out and give yourselves the time to gaze at your child, pray and talk.

Lyddie's sleeping beside me, DH is snoring...when do the tears of complete joy stop???

girliegirl, how precious!

I can so identify with this:

As a child people asked what I wanted to be and without hesitation I'd say "A momma." God has answered the desires of my heart.


I'll never have biological children, but God granted this in giving me stepchildren. Enjoy this precious season.
Marriage--what a wonderful image of Christ's love for His bride!
