The Newest Addition…..

Comments 2 Standard

Declaimer First:  I, Greg T., don’t often enter a entry into the family blog but since Merriann is still recovering from the hard work of Labor. I thought I would try my best.  Since many people in which this blog was created for are looking for baby pictures, I am “maning” up.  So please enjoy the “non” professional pictures.  Merriann will return soon to give you what you have all come to expect.

We have a new addition to our family….

Charlotte Hadassah

  Charlotte Hadassah Thames

She was born on Jan. 31, 2014 @ 6:01 am.  She was 6lb 15 oz and 20 inches long.

This was a first “relative” home birth experience. The reason I say relative is because it was at some friends of ours home.  And not ours.  We wanted to have a home birth but the distance from our house and the hospital had our midwife’s a little concerned when playing the what if games.  So when relating this concern to our friends they said, “Use our house!”  It was such a blessing.  God has a amazing way of working things out.

These are our Midwives, Dr. Kim, and Dr. Tamar.  They are both naturopathic doctors and midwifes.  They are awesome.  I must say they brought more to the table than I originally thought.  They were informative, to the point, funny, and just good people.  A-plus

And since we had the birth of Charlotte at a friends house and the stomach flu hit our house (that is a whole other story) there were a few days between the kids meeting their little sister.

Zoe and Oliver were so excited to meet her.  Zeke was a little less sure about the whole thing. But he wants to play with her now and I am not sure he gets why he has to be so gentle with her.
