Newborn Ben

Holy. Geeze. Ben is 6 months old. HOW?! I thought it was time I share his birth story with you all because better late than never, right? Let’s start with a little back story.

Meeting Blaire

Writing about and sharing pictures from the day Blaire was born gave me such a flood of emotions! I knew I wanted to share her birth story, since I wasn’t blogging one year again when she was born. We knew Blaire was breach at about 32 weeks. We were given a few options: aversion, seeing a chiro, laying upside down on the staircase with something frozen on top…
