"Giving birth is an ecstatic jubilant adventure not available to males.

It is a woman's crowning creative experience of a lifetime." ~ Dr. John Stevenson

Charles' Birth Slide Show

I finally accepted that Charles' birth video footage was lost forever. =( But I was able to still put this together. It's not ideal, but I'm happy with it. The music is a little different for a birth slide show, but it fits with this pregnancy. We celebrated our 20th anniversary during Charles' pregnancy--never dreaming when we got married that we would be pregnant with our 6th 20 years later. We spent our anniversary at a lovely little bed & breakfast called Somewhere in Time. One of the movies we watched was Father of the Bride part II. The main song of the soundtrack is "Give Me the Simple Life." To me this song epitomizes the simple peace and joy we felt at that time as we were once again adding another precious child to our family. It was a good place to be. =)

He is SO cute. I loved the pictures and my son said of your kids, "They are so lucky, they got to see the baby born at home!"
Indeed they are. :)

Yeah, although my kids were a bit nervous with the first homebirth, they all wanted to be there for the next two! In fact, my oldest son told me that I HAD to wake him up in the middle of the night if need be so he wouldn't miss the birth.
