Birth Announcement

Yes, I did actually have the baby. Our fourth daughter, Chloe Charlotte, was born May 12, 2012 at 4:55 pm. She was 19.5 inches long and weighed 8lbs 2oz. She was born at home, in the water, with only her Daddy and sisters in attendance. Eventually I will actually write her birth story, but for now here are the birth pictures.

First nursing


Cord still attached 4 hours later. We eventually cut it when she was 8 or 9 hours old.

Two days old. This was the first time we put clothes on her!

My 37 week belly picture, just because I never posted it. Chloe was born at 39 weeks, 2 days.

This is Chloe today, at 8 weeks old, with big sister Maddie.

So beautiful! I had mine four weeks early so we didn't get our homebirth, but we named our little girl Charlotte Jane. Great minds think alike! :) Congratulations!

Oh my goodness, I didn't know you'd had the baby! So glad I checked your blog on a whim today.

Congratulations on your new little one! What a cutie. Glad all went well. Can't wait to hear the story.

I LOVE the pics! Hope you will share a brief version of your birth story (maybe a summary of them all?) and some pics over on my blog!
