One Year Ago

My due date with Charlie was one year ago today. I celebrated this very special anniversary by staying up entirely too late watching a water birth transmitted over the internet for 800+ viewers. As a matter of fact, my birth center was the place where this couple gave birth. It was so amazing to watch, not at all dramatic like birth is portrayed in the media. I almost fell asleep a couple of times - it was that relaxing. I was very excited at the end, hoping beyond hope that I get that same peaceful birth experience.

We've got ten days until my baby turns one. Wow. I'm about to become the mother of a toddler.

I have a hugely long post in the works, which I hope to finish up and publish in the next week. In the meantime, we're going to enjoy this beautiful holiday weekend.

VERY COOL! One of my brothers was born in the water at a birthing was awesome!

Jim's cousin had a water birth with her first child - I think they were even on TLC's A Baby Story, too.
