She's so cute! For some reason, I had no idea she was born at home? That's fantastic! I really don't know how I didn't know that... Anyway, Happy birthday to your little girl! My oldest little girl turns FIVE on Wednesday. I'm trying not to have a panic attack. lol

Rebecca - yes, I'm a fellow home-birther. :) We tried with Patrick, but I was exhausted after being awake for over 36 hours and having only progressed to something like 4cm... so I figured, better the epi than an emergency c-section from exhaustion. His birth was fine, but I definitely prefer home birth.

With Erin, things were fabulous and if we have another, I will most definitely have another home birth - there's nothing better than recovering in the comfort of your own bed with your baby in your arms and your husband by your side - as I'm sure you know. :)

I remember when you were pregnant with your nearly 5 year old! How time flies. May is a great time of year to give birth. :)

I can NOT believe Erin is already a year old! She is looking so much like you, and that is a very good thing. :-) Love you!

I'm so glad Erin's birth went well. With my first I was just stupid and I'm VERY lucky I didn't have an unecessary c-section just from my own stupidity. (I guess ignorance would be a better word. lol ;) Anyway, I had Claire naturally in a free-standing midwives-only birth center which was very nice, but my homebirth was even better!
