She's Here!

i am thrilled to introduce you to our new little baby, 
Polly Diana Spring.



Born Sunday January 5, 2014, at 1:52 a.m. 
7 lb 4 oz, 20 inches long
\she is just the sweetest little thing.



 i had her via natural VBAC just as i'd hoped. i am looking forward to posting my whole birth story; it was a really incredible, powerful and sacred experience for me, raw and intense beyond words. i will be doing my best to write it up soon while it's all still so fresh.


now we are going about the business of establishing this little family of four. i have a one year old over here who is very, very excited. 
i can tell lucy and polly are going to be best of friends.

When I saw the post on facebook, I don't think I really quite understood just how special this was! That Lucy will now have a baby sister so close in age! It was my dream as a kid. How cool and close are these two going to be? Just lovely...

I am on the edge of my seat waiting to hear about the fact that you had a VBAC. Seriously-- please tell us more! Was this planned? Did you deliver with a midwife etc? So wonderful to know you were able to, but then again I have been hearing this more and more lately.

Hope you are well and resting up my dear friend. Much love to you :)

OOO POLLY POLLY POLLY!!!! what a bundle of love. I can't wait to see lucy interact with her. I hope you guys are adjusting well and that you are all so healthy and happy. You guys are the cutest little family. It seems weird but I can remember feeling more like a real family after bella was born, like maybe I was just playing house before. Or maybe she just was missing before and she made us more complete. I love you guys so dearly. Can't wait to hear your story xoxoxxoo love you xo
i had to sign into my blogger account just to comment on this wonderful news! congratulations on your VBAC! i had one, too and it was really an amazing experience. i am so glad that you were able to do that. your baby is just lovely and i hope you are resting and enjoying this short and amazing time with both your little girls. my oldest kid is turning 7 in two days and i just can't believe how fast the time has gone. soak it up, mama! <3 <3 <3 <3
