Introducing Laelia Norelle

Laelia Norelle, Day 2

Born at 8:40 am on April 17, 2010, after a long and all natural labor at home w/ my midwifes, and then a transfer to the hospital after 5 hours of pushing, fully medicated vacuum extraction by my awesome back up OB (glad I researched as much as I did!). Not exactly the home birth we were hoping for, but it was a wonderful experience, her tilted head included! She even still tilts her head back quite frequently, and it makes me consider how this tendency of hers is why we had to go to the hospital in the last hour!

I’m just getting used to how to handle daily life with a newborn, and now I’m making a goal to write her birth story and a new (non-baby related) blog post by next week! Also, I want to officially come up with a name for my Etsy site and get that set up as well, and I want to start pulling tears and inspiration for my print line. I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing all of this with a baby strapped to my front! All right! I need to squeeze some more work outs in too! I can’t stand not being able to wear my old jeans. >.<
