Happy birthday baby boy :)

NaBloPoMo – Day 23

It was at this exact time 2:14 p.m. on Nov. 23, one year ago today that my sweet baby boy Julian was born at home.

I never did post his home birth story on my blog but I have plans to do that in the coming days. His birth was a little bit out of the ordinary so it my hope that by having it “out there” on the ‘net, it might be useful and encouraging to someone else.

I’m in the process of writing Julian a letter recapping his first year that I will keep for him until he is older. I did the same thing on Ava’s first and second birthdays, though I admit I flaked out on her third.

What a difference a year makes!

Happy birthday, Julian! We are so happy and thankful to have you in our lives. May your second year of life be a wonderful as your first. :)

As much as I appreciated Rachel‘s suggestion for a birthday cake with breast milk frosting (from her comment on the previous post) LOL, I’ve decided instead to go with a vegan chocolate birthday cake, which I will be making along with big sister Ava’s help. Yum!

    And um, breastmilk frosting? I’ll pass. ;o) It’s wonderful stuff, but ya gotta draw the line somewhere!

  6. Happy Birthday baby boy! I remember vividly checking your blog multiple times a day, on the edge of my seat, wondering about Julian’s arrival. What a wonderful celebration for your sweet boy!

  7. Happy Birthday!

    I hope you will publish your birth story. I think that sharing birth stories is wonderful, and when I was expecting, I read so many of them. Each one helped me to form an opinion about what birth is like!

    I wish I’d read more home birth stories!
