Last year on this date, I published Seth’s birth story; now, here are the pictures that were taken right after he was born. Just a very slight recap of the birth story — because I had called the midwife when I had false labor and had her come too soon (from about 90 minutes away), I decided to wait to make sure it really was really for sure really labor before calling her again. So, I called her when my water broke… and Seth was born about an hour later. You do the math. 🙂 Plus, she had to arrange child care, so she got there about an hour after he was born.
I remember thinking that the baby was so small — probably about the same size as Keith was when he was born, which was 7 lb., 5 oz. Wrong!
