Congratulations! A natural birth is an incredibly powerful experience. I'm so glad you were able to do it this time. And how wonderful that baby Charles is a good nurser right from the start! Many best wishes for you and the whole family.
Congrats, Monica & Serge and welcome, Charlie! Reading Serge's side of birth story reminds me so much of my second son's birth: not sure I was in labor, thinking it was going to be all day, shocked/terrified/exhilarated it only lasted two short but extremely painful hours. How courageous of you both to do it on your own terms!
So very happy for you four, ahem, five! Sounds like it went very well-- and how nice of you to share your experience. Ah, a newborn in da house!! Congratulations~
Congratulations to everyone! So glad it all went so well....and so quickly! And can I just say how wonderful it is that his middle name is Maximus. I've been reading your blog for years, Monica. I know how special your Max is to you all. Take care and best wishes!
Congrats! My son is called Charlie - wonderful choice! How lovely.
Yay, he's here! Sounds like it went fast and smoothly, good news all round. However a child is born is a life-changing and powerful experience, especially if it's how you visualised it being, whatever that entails. Now. We want details of weight, length... blah blah, come on woman, you gave birth, like, yesterday! :)
My number 3 - surprise - has so far been the easiest and happiest of all my boys. Maybe it's because I'm not so worried but he has just been a thoroughly easy going, amenable little chap from early on. I wish the very same for you with your little man Charlie.x
I've been missing your posts and was worried all was not ok- BUT IT IS, beautiful pictures and the story made me tear up. My son drove a car for the first time the day your baby was born and had his wisdom teeth out the next day. You have so much to look forward to! Thank you for sharing the good and the bad with us- it is so normal, appreciated and totally beautiful.
congrats! he looks just like the way you drew him.
Congratulations dear! Finally you faced for the challenge and won! I'm really happy to see the photos of your angel. Waiting to see more updates from you.
Several months ago, I read an article you wrote about marriage. Since then, I've been an avid follower of your blog. I really enjoy your honesty, humor and down to earth perspective. You rock Monica! Congratulations on the birth of your new little one! May the love keep flowing :).
You don't know me.....but I've been following you for a while now. I just wanted to say congratulations on your new addition. It's amazing I can be so happy for people I've never met, but I feel as though I know you and your family and am genuinely happy for you. God bless you.
So many, many congrats on your beautiful little boy!
Congratulations on your new arrival. Really happy that the natural birth went well. Looking forward to reading more about you and Charlie.
