A homebirth starts with a massively huge baby pool stowed away in your unborn child's room. Henry thought the pool was his very own Wonder Wheel! Any Richard Pryor fans out there??
Once the party starts, the baby pool becomes the "birthing tub" and is moved into the living room. Taylor took his role of tending to the tub very seriously. Too bad the tub didn't work for me during the actual delivery. It's role during my labor and delivery had been highly anticipated during the prior weeks. But, at least we have a kickass baby pool for the backyard!
Mama nursing and resting comfortably in her own bed with her brand spanking new baby. I was so swollen after Henry was born from all the IV fluids. Here, I definitely look like myself about an hour after delivering Liza.
Liza was weighed on my bedside table. She was very alert and bright eyed, looking around the room.
Biggest brother met his new baby sister in the very familiar surroundings of his parents' bed. It took him about 3 minutes to warm up to her and then he had to check her out for himself.
