She's Hungry Again!

Open eyes, blue for now but it looks like they'll turn brown. She is past her birth weight-7.11 lbs as of Tuesday. Growing like a weed!

Older brother likes to give her kisses and "touch her gentle on her head." She doesn't seem to be enjoying it in this photo, but usually tolerates it!

Amazing Fall day (T took this from our yard).

Giving birth at home was totally amazing. I mean, yes, it was painful and parts of it really sucked (like puking!), but I got to labor with my family around me, we didn't have to take a car ride anywhere, and I was in a comfortable welcoming place. My husband laid next to me in bed and I was on my side, hugging him to death and asking if it was okay to push. "Let your body do what it wants to," Ali, my midwife said. I did, and it did and the baby came easily. Her being 2 lbs lighter than her brother probably made a big difference also! I felt fantastic afterwards and when Butters woke up in the morning, he had a baby sister!

Ada, I mean Eleanor, looks pretty in pink.

Butters is too cute checking out his sister.
