|Look at that little bubbly blue baby. I was so grateful for Becky jumping through so many hoops to be there. Her love and support was incredible. Not to mention the priceless video and photos Basil and I get to adore forever.|
|Hahaha, yeah, awesome, thanks Tony.|
(but really, he was great. Couldnt have done it without him. literally. get it?)
|This was Berk's perch for the last, and obviously most eventful, portion.|
She sat on a ledge above the tub. Hence the angle of the first picture.
|This. THIS is my favourite picture of the entire day.|
The genuine smiles and the watery, red-brimmed eyes just melt my heart.
|sweet becky took about an hour to dress Basil for the first time.|
She was so careful not to break my tiny baby's tiny arms ;)
|So much going on and Basil just gazes..|
Thus the love affair begins.
|Trust Becky to find the mirror.|
|"You come in with three people and you leave with four!!"|
|What happens when you want to meet your baby so so so bad.|
|And to end on a prettier note....|
|Got to the birthing center at 5:00am with contractions 3ish minutes apart.|
this is during a contraction...you can see how they progress by my facial expressions.

|Tony was absolutely wonderful. never left my side.|
|so far so good! i can handle this labor stuff.........|
|the tub felt so wonderful. i highly endorse it. i never want to have a land birth.|
