Baby's Here!

We are officially a family of SIX now! :) Our 4th little blessing arrived on April 5, at 1am. She is a precious baby girl and is VERY loved by her big brother and sisters!!

A few details...

Labor was fairly short & easy - from about 7pm to 1am. :)

I was able to have a home birth AND a water birth!! It was AMAZING and I would definitely do it again. The care you receive from midwives is unlike anything I've ever had before...and not having to go to the hospital was soooooo nice. I could go on and on about how HUGE of a fan I now am of midwives, home births & water births...but I'll spare you! haha. :)

She weighed 6lbs 13oz and was 19 1/2 inches long.

Her name is Kira, and she's as cute as button! ;)

Here are a few pictures...

I was going to guess that your baby would be born on Thursday! Kezi was also born the day before Good Friday :)
