taking back roads

the big ONE

on July 3, 2013

lydia hope, you’ve kept me on my toes since day one. (just when i thought i had this mom thing down too!) home birth turned (literally) into scheduled breech c-section turned (again..at the last minute!) into induction, delivering in hospital bathtub. your labor was the hardest, most painful but my favorite birth story. you haven’t been the easiest baby either. you’re by far the loudest. and hands down, worst the sleeper of them all. you are already fiercely independent. your shrill makes the dog run. but your sweet smile melts my heart. you get cuter everyday. and you are so loved!!

birth: 8.8lbs, 21″
1 year check up: 19lbs, 29.5″
