Meet Emma Joy! Photo by Kinsey Meredith Photography
Wondering why the blog was a little quiet in the month of July?
Meet Emma Joy, the newest addition to our little family! She arrived on Tuesday, July 16th, almost 2 weeks past her due date. She weighed a healthy 10lbs 3oz and was 20 inches long. Charlotte, our two-year-old has been adjusting really well, surprisingly, and loves holding Baby Emma. I’m recovering well and just now starting to come out of the “newborn fog.”
A friend of mine gifted me birth photos, and I’m so grateful! We didn’t have them when Charlotte was born, and I regret not having those professional pictures of her in those first hours of her life. They change so quickly! And I love having photos of me in labor. I know, it sounds weird, but since I ended up with a C-section (again), I like being able to look at the photos of me in labor and know that I tried my hardest to do a VBAC. It is very healing for me to have those photos…but I’m not sharing those with you all! 🙂

Thank you so much for the gift of these photos, Kinsey! I’m so incredibly grateful! What a blessing you have given me!
And I have to say, if you are local, pregnant and looking for a doula, I HIGHLY recommend Paula Popp at Puget Sound Doula Care! I could not have labored without her! She was so supportive and knew exactly what I needed before I even knew myself! Such a blessing to me and my husband! If you want to find out more about Paula, check out her profile on DoulaMatch.net!
