big sister

Did I just say that I was going to post every day for the next 7 days? Was it just yesterday that I said that? Already I am wondering what I was thinking..... Well, let's open iPhoto and see what we've got...

We didn't have a digital camera before Chessa was born, so that's were all of our pictures start. So here we have seven photos of the sweetest, most loving, most helpful big sister that ever was! (She is assisting our midwife in this first photo.)



The photo quality is not so great but the moments certainly were.


Chessa needed sunlight!

Complete adoration!

i love looking at photos of people's births! thank you for sharing these with us all:) my very very few photos from my first son's birth are dark and fuzzy-ish but i love them a lot and look at them a lot as well:) my midwife took them just after he was born (there are also a few she took while i was in labor)...they are great memories!

i hope that your family is reunited soon so that you can all be happy and together again. i hate being split up...it is really challenging and kind of lonely.

So beautiful! If I could do it all over again, homebirth is the way we would go. The perfect way to enter the world....and with a big sister right there to welcome and help. Wonderful!

How is it that time can fly by so quickly? It doesn't seem like this could have been 5 1/2 years ago! I love the photos of fresh little Chessa .......and Chloe still had her "baby face".
