Saturday (15th of July) truly was a beautiful day to give birth. The sun was shinning and we had all enjoyed pancakes for breakfast. What had been planned as a day hiking and sightseeing in the Columbia River Gorge was instead spent laboring with the love and support of Jonathan and the kiddies and a good friend.
At 5.40 pm, our beautiful daughter Auden Wren Jennings came into our lives and family weighing 6lbs 13 oz.
Our birth was truly an incredible experience which 'I'm so excited to share with you in a full post featuring all the beautiful pictures captured by our amazing birth photographer Jeanette Lee very soon. Until then here is just a sneaky peek at a couple of the pictures.
Isla made the big announcement to our family with a beaming proud smile ' Mummy it's a girl!' The look on her face made me cry. This little girl is over-joyed to have a baby sister and J and I are feeling incredibly blessed to have 2 little boys and 2 little girls.
We are enjoying these early days of newborn snuggles, feeling very loved from new found friends here in Portland and looking forward with great anticipation to next week which is set to see another dream come true for our family (more info to come very soon.)
Happy happy times in the Little Green Lives household, not too much sleep to be had, and all of us adjusting to being a family of 6 but feeling very blessed.
Thanks for popping in.
