The First Hours

In an odd ‘one must die for the other to live’ type situation, my iMac died the day Rory was born. Hence the ridiculous lack of baby photos. I managed to get my fried hard drive replaced last week and finally have all the necessary applications and plugins re-installed so that I can get back to editing. So, this is my first real blog post dedicated to our new daughter, Rory.

I’m sure some of you may be interested in a full birth story, but I won’t bore the general public with that. If you need some gory details, just drop me a line and I’ll be more than happy to share. The quick and dirty story is that Brei had a very good labour and we ended up delivering the baby at home on our own bed with our amazing midwife. The shots you see below are of some of the home setup and then a few images of our little girl just minutes and hours after she was born.

Glad to see you back in business Heath! This must have been an amazing experience for you, especially being able to be at home. I absolutely LOVE the pic of her laying face down on the towel with her behind stuck in the air. Classic! Congrats bud, and hope that all stays well!

Congrats! Glad it all went well and I love the pictures. We planned on a home birth with a midwife for our next child but all the “next” children ended up being adoptions…
