Welcome Baby Emma!

Happy 2012 and Happy Chinese New Year! Emma Elizabeth has finally arrived! (which is why the blog has been so quiet). :) She was born January 8th at 10:45am weighing 7lbs 1oz and measuring 20.75 inches. She is my third Hypnobirth and the most successful one at that! She came into the world just two hours after we checked into the hospital with no fuss and no intervention and after just 4 birth breaths. My husband even commented on how great I looked after the birth, not tired and worn out. I am so grateful to the two amazing midwives I had attending the birth..they truly gave me what I, peace, and calm. Yay for Hynobirthing! I had such a great experience that I am seriously contemplating becoming a certified Hypnobirthing instructor and Doula. I want to help other expectant moms achieve the birth they deserve and have always dreamed of. My midwife even told me she would send lots of clients my way. Who knows? Maybe this is a new path for me. :)

I hope you are all having a great New Year so far! I will be a bit busy with baby and trying to juggle 3 kids, housework and design work so posts may be few and far between. Let's all hope baby sleeps through the night at six weeks. Hey, I can dream, can't I? ;)
