Home Birth and Life

Mason's cub scout Hockey night. He spent the night at the stadium. He doesn't look thrilled.
Look how cute he is. To be honest he cried when he left to go.

He got to shoot a puck.

Look how cute my hockey guy is!!

I had the opportunity almost five years ago to give birth to my darling daughter Abigail at home. She was a big one wieghing in at 9 1/2 pounds. The birth was a normal one without complication as most births are. Generally it is when you have interventions that things start to get complicated. I labored in a blow up pool in my bedroom filled with hot water. It was wonderful. The whole birth was about 7 hours, that's it. The end was a bit hard as she got stuck for a few minutes, but in the end it was glorious. I had four generation of women by my side and my daughter was prayed in to this world by my faithful sisters. I would do it again in a heart beat.

So Abbie is nearly five, the only bad thing is I forgot what day she was born. In all confusion I thought it was the 26 of November for a whole year only realizing that it was acutally the 25! I had to look back at her birth certificate to confirm. Well I have done it again. I am not sure, I think it is the 25 but what if it is the other way around? Two weeks go by and I really don't know. I finally asked my sister in law and she said it was the 25th. So that is what I am going with. I think.

I really cannot believe we have a five year old girl in our midst. Here are some pictures of life in general, maybe I can get this thing to work.
