Numero 3
Littlest baby Grim was born on Monday morning. She’s a girl–despite all the predictions based on the way I carried So, we’re more like the Ingalls than ever! And ‘Pa’ seems just fine with that 😉

Birth Time: Monday, May 23 at 9:42am
Name: Eliza Liri  Eliza means “Pledged to God” & Liri “Music”
Weight: 8 lbs 7oz
Height: 21 inches

While her birth was far from the simple, quick and nearly easy birth of Leviah, it is done and we were at home and safe and all is well. I am so thankful for my midwife, she’s a blessing in our lives for more reasons than her expansive knowledge of birthing babies. Things could have been much worse had we not had her help!

We may be a little slow on posting for the next few weeks. My eyes are a bit droopy and it’s hard to focus on a computer screen…but, we’re up and at ’em. Funny how much faster you have to recover and can, when there are other little ones anxious to play…

    I'm so happy for you guys (again!) and glad that she is here safely. When you are able post your story– more reasons why we need good midwives who can attend births at home!

    Congrats! I want to hear your story too, Lacey! Welcome to the world, Eliza. Since you're such Ingalls fans, I'm surprised she's not Eliza Jane. 😉

    thanks everyone! after a little time passes I will share the whole story. Joy–we skipped Jane simply because it was so hard NOT to let that roll of our tongues!

    I just read a comment you made on Charity's blog about urban living and wanted to visit you and thank you for that comment because it is SO how I feel! But here I am and I see this beautiful baby born at home, in peace, and I get teary eyed and just want to send you and your family a huge congratulations! Take care, rest, and enjoy one another.
