New baby. Jeremiah Richard Saenz was born yesterday, October 2, at 3:11pm. This was our first home birth, and we were surprised and pleased at how natural it seemed, compared to four hospital births that involved various levels of technologically-induced misery. I can’t comment on births that are likely to be complicated, but for uneventful situations home birthing is definitely the way to go.
These pictures were mostly taken at 4pm yesterday, except for the last three which were taken this morning. Debbie will be taking it easy for the next couple of days, but we expect to have returned to a normal routine by Monday.
