Belated 40 Weeks!

Well, I am greatly overdue for my 40 week updated because I have been busy caring for a newborn.40weeks

We welcomed Levi James on May 14th, just 4 days shy of his estimated due date.  He weighed in at 8 lbs even and measure 20.5 inches.  They journey to “Hello” was long- 46 hours from contractions starting to delivery. My water broke just 6.5 hours into the journey and I labored at home for 12 hours before going to the birth center where I labored for another 24 hours before transferring to the hospital.  Once I started pushing he was out within the hour. 20130514174539316

The birth journey was epic, empowering, and so wonderful.  A lot happened and we are processing it all. A detailed birth story will be some time coming but know that it was everything I had hoped for.  I have a lot to say but as you can imagine not a lot of hours in the day to write it all out.  For now enjoy a whole slew of photos from day 1 through day 15.
