strange bird

AwwwwwWWWWwwwwww :)




im going to read this over and over and over. wonderful story and a wonderful (and cute!) outcome. congrats all over again.


That was the sweetest thing ever. I appreciated every single descriptive detail. I can't wait to make my husband read it! Tell me, did you use tiny puppet strings to get a smile? :-) What a pretty baby boy. I *heart* him.


That's possibly the best birth story I've read in a good long time. You've nailed the crying-to-humor ratio perfectly.



Thank you for sharing this with us.


Even though I didn't understand half of the story (pitocin? what?), I got the most important part: DAVE WAS GONE FOR TOO FREAKING LONG. And also! Asher!

At 5:34 pm, when Asher was crying? And so were you? I started crying, too. Did you cry writing that? I would have, since I obviously cried reading it.

Okay. Fine. When he was wheeled in to the room in the little plastic bassinet? And you held him for the first time?

I cried. Again.


Thank you so much for sharing your birth story with us. I love that you were completely honest about everything you went through. How did you remember so much!? I think I'm going to have my husband act as my scribe during my labor and delivery in March - I'm sure he'll love that.


I made it through every word. That was a beautiful birth story. Thank you for sharing it!


That's a great birth story. Thank you for sharing it.

I loved your story. Thanks for taking the time to write it.


Thank you for sharing that with us. I hope you make a hard copy also so Asher can read it and appreciate when he is older. I did the same for Elisabeth. My mom even kept my paper with my contractions written on it. Even though it was over three years ago I can remember everything. It is truly the most amazing and beautiful experience a person can have. I am so glad you and Dave were able to experience that. Life is a gift and we are so lucky.


Beautiful, simply beautiful. Now I want another one... (baby, that is! not a different version. although that would be interesting- a choose your own adventure birth story. we never get the one we expect apparently!)


Oh, *sniffle*. I'm so happy for you!


Thank you for sharing...that was perfect.

And that last picture is absolutely spectacular.


love the birth story. love asher. love everything! :)


Great story but I'm not sure how I feel about the blood all over the wall in the Operating Room. Ewwwww! Did your husband notice it too?



ok...yes I did. Babies are beautiful and so are the amazing moments after birth. I hope you print this and put it in Asher's baby book.

thanks for the warm fuzzy


oh, p.s. what is your thing against Ann Curry?


I read every word. Loved every word.




That was so beautiful. Tears actually made there way up to my eyes. I'm so happy everything turned out okay and he is a beautiful baby.


Oh, Em. That made me cry.

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

Wonderful, absolutely wonderful.


I'm reading this at work.


Colleagues looking at me strangely.


I love reading birth stories, although they scare the crap outta me.


What a great story (with a wonderful outcome)! Thanks for sharing it.

Also? That picture of his little face against yours in the operating room is seriously the most beautiful picture I've seen in a while.
