Birth Day

May 19, 2008

Miss Emilia would like to introduce you all to her baby brother, Mister Jasper, who arrived last night at 9:16pm.

After very narrowly escaping being born at the side of the road.

Their bad mother, who is happy but nonetheless shell-shocked from what was – no exaggeration – a somewhat traumatic birth experience, needs to recover for a day or two before sharing that story. In the meantime, accept this photo and a weakly blown virtual kiss as both birth announcement and thank-you (for your amazing support during this crazy pregnancy) card.

    xoxo

    Glad you’re all all right. Can’t wait to hear the stories!!

    Shannon Nelson May 20, 2008 at 10:06 pm

    Congrats! I completely can relate to the almost having him on the side of the road—I had Brody within 50 minutes of arriving at the hospital. And my husband lost his beloved Puma’s that night when my water broke all over his sneakers. Fun times.

    I hope you have a speedy recovery! Can’t wait to hear your story.

    Mom101 May 20, 2008 at 10:07 pm

    Many tears in the eyes, much love in the heart. Congrats on your strong, healthy little guy.

    (Not named Bob. But still..I like it.)

    Congratulations! Coming out from lurking to tell you how fabulous those names are. They look like such sweeties!

    Devra May 20, 2008 at 10:47 pm

    Did you give birth orally? Please say no. If however you need support about dealing with a traumatic birth, lemme know. I’ve had two, so I probably have decent enough credentials.

    If you don’t already have Gloria Gaynor on your iPod, now would be a good time. And Kool and the Gang “Celebration!” : )

    xxoo to you and yours!

    Kim/2 Kids May 20, 2008 at 10:49 pm

    Congratulations! Beautiful children. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    You did it! Good job mama bear! Your two wonderful children look great. Happy, healthy, loved. Emilia does look proud and happy and soooo cute! And, as for Jasper, most excellent name, and handsome bundle of cuteness. I wish you strength, and sleep, for the next part– the rest of your wonderful life. Congratulations to mama and papa.
