Our family is just smitten by our sweet boy, Rennie! He is the cutest baby I have ever seen and boyyyyy does he love to nurse. All.The.Time. 😉

Looking at these pictures makes me so incredibly proud of my body! I had a traumatic med-free first birth, and my second birth was anything but med-free, but this birth was PERFECT! I am so grateful to my birth team for helping me to achieve such a great birth. Enjoy!
