Labor Love

I don't "do" Worldless Wends. Nevertheless, here is a photo for you to enjoy! My doula took it 28 months ago when I was in labor with Cole. It was the perfect spring day and we went for a walk to help move the contractions along. George insisted on coming with me and insisted on being carried. He sat atop my belly and snuggled in. My doula told me he would smiled as I swayed, squated and hummed through the contractions. He took a nap in my arms, his last nap as the "baby" of the family. Just a few hours later, his brother was born. The next day, he went to the hospital to see him and told us, in no words but with actions, that this was HIS baby.

I love this photo.
