It’s taken me much longer than I’ve intended to blog about this birth. August was a bit of a busy month and with the kids home all day, my work hours were very limited. So since school has officially started, I can get back into the groove!
This is Nikki’s third birth, but first homebirth. Her second daughter was born quite fast, and so of course we all expected another quick birth, but you never can plan these things! I got a phone call around 11:00pm. The midwives and I stayed with Nikki and her family through the night. By morning we knew everyone, most importantly Nikki, needed some rest. And so I was called back around noon that day, and a few hours later Nikki had herself another girl! And Nikki has given them each a name of a Queen, which I think is very fun.
By the way, Byron was introduced to Angry Birds tonight.
