park and babies

So, my friend Kym welcomed her precious little boy into this world at 3:19 this morning.
His name is Elijah and was 7lbs 10oz.

I was invited to the birth to photograph it. As all births are, it was a beautiful thingto watch.
I have had privilege of watching many babies be born.
My first was when my niece Rebecca was born. I remember it like it was yesterday even though she is
almost 7 years old.

The second time I got to view a birth was when my old friend Autumn gave birth to her daughter Violet.

The third time I got to experience this amazing miracle of life being brought into this world was when Kym gave birth to her beautiful daughter Grace.

Fourth was when my gorgeous niece Addie was born.

Fifth was this morning watching little Elijah being born.

I am so grateful that I was invited to view these little lives making their big appearances into this world.

I don't know if I will be able to do this anymore as thing and situations have been changing and I just don't know when or if I will ever get to experience this without being the one givig birth.

We shall see.

Also, being prgnant has really drained all my energy anstill have not edited all the pictures from the park.

I need to post pictures soon. I have been a bad blogger. Thanks to those who still follow me even when I take several days to post and what not.

I am hoping after Ari is born things will get better!


Hope you all had a wonderful St. Pattys day!

I never experienced anyone's birth but my own and it made me wish I was more attentive to my friends and family that had babies before me. Now I plan to be there with flowers and a little gift each time :)
