BABY ARIA HAS ARRIVED!


Aria Elizabeth Christian was born Tuesday, July 24th at 10:24 pm. She weighs 7lbs. 2 oz. and is 19 inches long. And my midwives say that she really wasn't all that late, in fact she was on time. I was just off in my calendar by 1 1/2 weeks or so. She still seems so surreal to me and i can't believe i pushed her out of my body just yesterday. She came after 5 hours of labor and 35 mins of pushing. All in all it was a great natural birth at home. I am so grateful for this beautiful blessing in our lives and that God made me a women. I now know what birthing a child is all about.

Congratulations Corrine and Brandon! And Welcome Aria to planet earth. On the day she was born I had a dream early that morning. In this dream Corrine stood before me to announce the birth of Aria. We imbrassed in a, father/ daughter, congratulatory hug and as we did so an were overcome with a deep since of love and joy so much so that I was awaken from my sleep. It was so real and moving that I laid there for several minutes to savor the sweetness of it..... "And ye shall have joy and rejoicing in your posterity"
