Welcome Aubrey Faith

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward." Psalm 127:3

I am so excited to finally be sharing this birth. This beautiful young lady came into the world on 2/13/15 at 6:12 am.  Weighing a whole 6lbs 6oz and 19" long. She is such a beautiful addition to this growing family. Her mom and I have now been friends for over a year and she was a repeat client that I am blessed to know. 

When I first arrived mom was in labor and the kids were helping as best they could. Daniel was hugging mommy through her contractions and then putting oils on her belly.  Sophia was practicing with her baby and Olivia was all ready to show me the pictures that she made of her family. We took some pictures and played a little then I left.  Fast forward : I came back that night and mom was still in labor. This time just mom and dad were there. Seemed familiar to me lol I have been here before, oh yes when Daniel was born. By now mom and dad are getting really good at this. After two C-sections and a home birth under their belts, I was thinking this would go quickly and with ease.

Boy was I mistaken. This birth took close to 30 hours. But I have to say I have never met a mom so strong in her faith as this one. She prayed through contractions, read scripture from her wall that was filled with amazing gifts and thoughtful saying from family and friends. Most of all she talked to her unborn child, letting her know that she could join this world when she was good and ready, and in between saying and I quote a few time "No you can't sit on my hip, it is counter productive."  She spoke to her child with such love that at one point it made me tear.

It was my true honor to be apart of such love.

Due to some graphic photos it might look as though I skipped some part, I did not, I am just respecting the privacy of this young family. So please enjoy. 

                           Last Picture before Aubrey was born.

                This little one was tangled in her cord, but daddy took care of that immediately.

                           Not Quite done yet,  Mom is still contracting.

                           The cord of life, still attached. Amazing !

                              Praying ! Just beautiful  

                         Her birth mark is in the shape of a heart. Pure love if you ask me.

                                             First kiss from daddy and daddy definitely earned it lol

                                Her finger and toe nails were super long. Luv it

                                                          Snug in daddy's arms

                                                         And then there were four
