She's been here since July, and I'm a bad blogger!

Hey there!

Umm, since it's November, I guess I should tell you that I'm not 4 months overdue with baby number two--she's been here since the end of July.  Little Bennett was 2 weeks late and came swiftly when she was finally ready.  Labor was just under four hours from the first contraction to the last push--pretty quick, huh?  She was born at home, just as we had planned and I couldn't have asked for a better birthing experience.  I'll spare you the details of the birth (unless you want them... I actually like reading about other births, especially when they're positive experiences) and just say that I gave birth on the floor, next to my bed, while my dog sat in the bed and watched from above.  Kinda humorous, I think.

Bennett weighed in at 8 lbs and was 19 inches long--not too huge for a late baby, thank goodness!

Here she is, 20 minutes after birth, being checked out by my midwife--on my couch.  I still can't believe we were blessed to have such a cool birth.

Here is Elliott, meeting her baby sister.  (Elliott slept through Bennett being born--Bennett was born shortly after midnight.)

Me holding Bennett--she's not even a full day old at this point, I think.

She's a few days old here...

And here she is now.  3 1/2 months old, and oh SO sweet.

Till next time,


  1. Yay! Beautiful little gal that we can't stop staring at...in a good way! Gotta learn the baby bobble head to communicate though. ;)

  2. Awww she is soooo cute :-)
    wish you all the best!!!


  3. Awww, look at that sweet face! She is such a pretty girl! Love the picture of you two cuddling. I was just telling Jeff this morning how nervous I am about giving birth a second time. My first experience wasn't awful, but it was NOT great and I do NOT want to ever have a repeat performance. It's nice to hear positive stories. Nice to see a post from you--hope you're all well!

  4. Congratulations! I'm so glad you were able to give birth at home! I wish I could have done that, but insurance would not pay, so we gave birth at a free standing birthing center for all the girls and came home right after-the next best thing! So glad everything went well. Beautiful little girl!

  5. Congrats! She's a super cutie! Welcome back to blogging. I'm sure you're super busy so take care and enjoy those little ones!
