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 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.
