Pequeños Milagros


On Monday, I had the honor of attending a movingly lovely, smooth, easy home birth. It was so delightful. Even the mom, during active labor, described her feelings as "euphoric". The greatest honor was that the mother was my sister in law -- a very dear friend. This sweet baby is my new nephew, Duke. Welcome to the world, buddy. You're a lucky little guy to have been born so peacefully into such a wonderful family.

I am so happy to hear that he is here! Hurray for Mom and baby. I think it is special that you were there.

Oh, what a dear sweet little thing. Of course I love his name, too.
