Asa Victor

We have a son!  Asa Victor was born at 11:33 AM on May 8th.
8 lbs 4 oz  -  21.25 inches

He was born in the same room as Ivy was at the birth center.  Another water birth, which is the only way I ever want to do it.  In many ways, I feel like this birth was harder.  For one thing, a bigger baby (Ivy was 6lbs 7oz).  Also, Asa didn't want to stop sucking on his thumb while inside, which was keeping him from getting in the right position to come out.  But the midwife knew exactly how to get him where he was supposed to be.  So thankful once again for the amazing birth team at Dayspring Midwifery!

Ivy is completely enchanted with her little brother.  Every time she sees him, she holds out her hands to hold him. It's the sweetest. *smile*

I'll share more pictures later.  Have a blessed day, everyone!
