Anastasia knew that September 30th was to be her birthday. She didnt want to be an October baby. Perhaps she likes Sapphire’s over Opals. Who knows! But she was ready. I got a text the night before she was born to get ready as there was some action happening. So I packed a bag and made sure everything was charged and drove to UW Valley Medical in Renton, WA. I met her amazing doula, Lisa Shire with A Hand 2Lend who was so great and so supportive throughout the whole thing. From there things moved really fast. Mom went from being 2cm to a 10 in no time at all! Before I knew it, it was time to push! Mom pushed. She pushed for 3 minutes and out came baby Anastasia. How awesome is that?! The day after she was born, today I went back to the hospital so I could watch Big Brother Oliver meet his sister Anastasia. He was so cute and scared of her almost. He is such a sweet little inquisitive boy. He was so curious about everything and how she got there and he was so excited to be able to play with his mom again. I thought that was the sweetest about how excited he was.
