Wow, what a remarkable difference in your two births! I'm so glad you felt such peace with Nathan's birth, it probably made a nice transition to the scream-fest that ensued, yes?

Great birth story! I missed the birth of my second baby - emergency c-section - so it's wonderful that you have the memories!

Thanks for sharing this! I can't believe how big all of our kids are getting- That tiny little Kara from the hospital pictures is making me weepy!

I'm sure you will be glad that you wrote this, even two years after the fact. Better late than never!

Also, I'm glad you're back to writing regularly. I enjoy your humor. :)

I loved reading about Nathan's grand entrance. It's nice to hear a low-key, uneventful birth story! He is a super cutie. Also? I'm afraid he might have been bigger than Kara (gasp!) if they'd let him cook all the way. I'm still mad impressed that your tiny self produced two such sizable babies. They are both beautiful.

And for what it's worth, it took me two years to write Dean's birth story, too, so don't feel bad.

Love that story. Also, the family of four picture is just super.

Such a great post. I just love birth stories, and you did Nathan's justice!

I loved reading this, looking at the pictures, and remembering the birth of our sweet grandson.

Love reading you! Thanks for the story of Nathan! Great to see you last week too!
