Happy 3rd Birthday Little Sophie!!!
I wanted to have a natural childbirth this go around so my wonderful SIL read up on "doulaing" and assisted David through out the 20 hour process. We couldn't have done it without her. She and Sophie have a special bond to this day...Sophie absolutely adores her Aunt Moni.
Dad was a great support through the whole thing! Here I am wearing him out. I didn't get in the bed until the last hour in a half or so to actually push. Other than that I was up and down the halls, in the shower, on the birthing ball, you name it we tried it!
Here we are about 5 hours after Sophie was born. Her big brother was only 6 at the time...he was so proud, and still is.
Here is one of my favorite pics of Sophie as a baby! She was worth every hour of labor, I wouldn't change the experience for anything! Happy birthday Sophie, you are more than we could ever imagine!
