“Rowan Lura Lillibridge was born 2 hours after the peak of the full moon on devils night, the night before Halloween. Born on her due date, just like her sister, Ruby. She is tiny and fat and perfect. Rose is in love, we all are ♥♥”
Where do I start to tell you about this beautiful family, birth and baby? With an ugly cry I suppose. I have been doing it for 2 days. At first I thought it was the sleep deprivation. I realized today, after 9 solid hours of uninterrupted sleep, that was not the case. The tears are coming from 2 places. Both places are love, but one is the joyful kind being so completely elated and in love with this squishy baby. The other place being the painful kind knowing that this birth meant the countdown to saying goodbye to special friends. They will be moving soon to be with family up north. Damn Yankees!!
Today, since I am looking at the keyboard through cloudy eyes, I will let the images tell the story of this beautiful birth.
I love you precious family.
Thank you Jenni of Joyful Birth ~ Doula Care for taking this image of me getting sweet snuggle time!
