Helloooo. We will be getting internet on the 9th so expect to see more of me about! I am making it my goal to post his birth story soon but the gist of things... it was AMAZING.


I periodically feel the need to brag about giving birth in a POOL in my own LIVING ROOM but people around me have heard it before, and others don't care. So I really need to be back here! lol.

I can type up the offical calculations later but basically my whole labor was 5 hours, and I pushed for 5 minutes. On December 5th, right on his due date, in his waters. (Isn't that like double good luck points there?? lol) I could literally feel it stretch and burn but holy cow I wouldn't have traded it for my first birth. No way Jose.

Here is my beautiful little man!!!! These are his 2 week photos, done by me









and of course both my babies


she LOVES him


His name is Shia Royal. (And our daughter is Summer Raine. Seeing as how he came out a BOY, initials were all we could do for a theme.. "SRS".)

AWESOME! Congrats!!

Your birth sounds alot like my homebirth. My labor was 5 hours, I pushed 3-4 times, in a pool, but mine was in my spare room. My birth was amazing too! I can't wait to do it again with this baby.

Congrats again, he is beautiful!

Thanks everyone!!

He was 8lbs 7oz lol, 2 ounces more than Summer was. Ahh it was just amazing, I wish everyone who could try it would. The world would never go back if it knew better!

It came in my birth kit and I made SURE I was going to get one! It's through them: Birth Supplies

You can see under Baby it has a bunch of other stuff too.


ETA: In turn I'd like to know, who made your top row of blinkies? I love that style, I need some new ones!
