So excited to announce that we got our homebirth!!! Anyway after 21 LONG hours of labor Bentley was born at home in the tub into my and his daddys arms. He started breathing and crying right away. I was the most amazing experience ever!! Labor was long and so sporadic, which was very frustrating, but it just goes to show that not every labor has to be textbook to produce a baby!! He is a little peanut at 5lbs 10oz and 17 3/4in long, but everything looked good. His placenta and cord were both fine he is just small like his mama Oh and he has a ton of hair! I just love him to pieces already

Seconds after birth.

After his newborn exam.

Meeting his big sisters for the first time! Lacey came in the house and exclaimed "Oh my baby is here" She calls him "HER" baby and just wants to hold him ALL the time!


Thanks Claire for my awesome siggy!!
