I posted a (kinda) short version of the birth story in this thread, post # 9:http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f3...-had-evie.html (Jess (Effervesence) had Evie!!)

I am still working on the "official" birth story The one above is kind of serving as a rough draft, I just couldn't wait to share her story with you ladies! Here are some pictures! The pics of the actual birth turned out really crummy. When Daryl first started snapping them, I yelled at him for the flash going off. It was the middle of the night, and we live in a basement apartment with very dim lights. The flash was really disturbing to Evie. So we don't have any great pictures of the birth or weighing etc, which makes me sad but that's okay.


seconds after birth. She had just come out of the water


Trying to latch on for the first time. She got it pretty much without any help!


A few hours after birth

These next are some "portraits" I took of her yesterday, so I guess she was 3 days old? They are raw images, I haven't had any time whatsoever to edit them for color or anything, but they are too precious not to share :






I am told that pictures exist of Jonah and Evie, that were taken while I was still sleeping after the birth. I have not seen these yet, but if there are any good ones I'll come and add those too.
Thanks for looking

Thanks everyone

Twinkle- no worries. I realized a while after I posted the birth story that it would probably be missed, so that's why I posted the link here

Sodagirl- I actually bought the tutu on Etsy for cheaper than it would have been for me to make it. I'm assuming the seller is able to get tulle in bulk at a good price
