Bean Bag Baby!

As much as we try to plan where, when and how we will birth our babies, they really do have a mind of their own. This mama planned to have her baby in the brown room at Babymoon Inn birth center. I think Dad was prepared to catch but I don't think he realized he'd have to catch! Baby tried to come in the car...Mama said "no!" Baby tried to come two steps through the door of the birth center...Mama said "no!" Baby said, "I'm coming now!"...We made it to the brown bean bag in the living room area and this is what unfolded...

 What a precious look on Daddy's face as he's gently guiding his son into his hands!

Dad placing his son in wife's arms. Then he stood back in awe at what had just taken place! What an honor it was to witness such a beautiful birth!

Beautiful job Mama!

Busy, busy, busy...again!

Big sister was helping her mama through each contraction. She got in the water and helped catch her baby brother and even cut the umbilical cord (of which she could pronounce every syllable!)

Photo above is one happy mama...She pushed her baby out after having a cesarean birth with her firstborn son!
