Please Welcome Baby Merrick!

Thanks to all the ladies that got back to me for the birth stories! I'll have something to post every 2 days for a month! How great?? I'm gonna get back to you all somewhere this weekend!

So many of you guest why I haven't post the blanket like I said I will...

On August 2nd, after 2h of labor and 5min of pushing, was born little baby boy Merrick, weighing 7lbs 13 oz and measuring 20".

He's a very healthy baby, and he eats A LOT.

We are a drained, sleep deprived, very happy couple!

I had another episode of latent labor Sunday, so we decided to sleep at my mom's who lives 2 streets from the house of birth.

I'm very glad we did! My contractions slacked for the night, and they started back at around 7am.. Well, I realized how regular and strong they were when Mariann woke up.

We entered the House of birth at 8h30 and the Baby was born at 9h07.
He remained nameless for 3 days, but we decided on Merrick before we left the house.

Mariann loves her brother baby, as she says.
She's also able to say his name, 'Yick!

She loves to kiss him and pat his head full of hair!
She showed no sign of jealousy yet, and she even went straight to her big girl bed without stepping out once last night, even if she spent 3 days sleeping in a park at my mom's.

So now I'm gonna get some rest !

Watch for the first birth story soon!

oh, and I'm sure some of you are gonna ask... My pack pain is GONE!!!! yay!

    And here's my favorite birth blessing, from Starhawk's "The Fifth Sacred Thing" book:

    "May you always find the cure
    whenever you need it.
    May you always have enough
    to eat and to drink and to share with others.
    May you find true love.
    May you escape from every trap prepared for you.
    May you have strength to survive.
    Be free, be strong, be yourself.
    Be happy, be proud of being who you are, be loved and be loving.
    Live among flowers, surrounded by current waters.
    Live to the heat of the sun, breathing pure air, nourished by the light of the moon and the stars.
    Understand that you are welcome, that you are a precious gift for us, blessed be."


    Kisses and love from us.
