It overwhelms me that our baby girl is over a month old. Already. They say “the days are long but the years are short”, and I’m sort of already feeling it.
I’ve been planning for the longest time to write down Joy’s birth story. Of course, I loved the idea of sharing it publicly to help encourage other women who are considering birth without medical intervention (it’s possible and so amazing), but also so I would never ever forget the details. Although it’s almost silly to think I would forget the details… but it went by so fast. So long, and so fast, and I remember glimpses and moments but collectively it’s a mumbo jumbo. So I still hope to get it all down on paper, but at this point (a month later!) we will just have to see.
So, for now, here are photos of my daughter. Taken at 10 days. I’m in total awe of how beautiful she is- and how much she has grown in such a short, short time.
Check out our Vlog from the day she was born. Short, yet sweet, and my very favorite to date.
