Happy First Birthday Joy!!!!

1 year ago my 8th baby was born.  Joy was our 5th home birth and 3rd unassisted birth.  I impatiently waited 19 days past my EDD.  She was due on her biggest brother's 6th birthday (Dec 20).  His birthday came and went, as did Christmas, New Years, my birthday...  Then, finally on the morning of Jan 8, she decided it was the right time to come....

Born at 5:17pm, making me wait until 42w 5d, she was 10lb 11oz.  Caught by daddy in the tub.


Some of you were here for me as I posted throughout labor (http://www.cafemom.com/group/115189/forums/read/17821038/BABY_Jan_8_41_Weeks_2_Days_Pregnant_Dec_31_Jan_2_Jan_4_Update - Labor started around page 60)

Is that a clip-on holster? That seems like a faily large gun. Is that comfortable to wear with no belt? I hate wearing a belt, and am thinking about a shoulder holster because mine is a little heavy on my pants. 

Oh, and congrats!!

Quoting Momoftwinkies: She is a cutie!

She's spoiled rotten by the kids.  LOL!  I can't wait to get pictures of her covered in pink icing from her cupcakes.

It has a paddle, but I have it on with a belt.  It is the compact version of the Ruger (sr9c), but still pulls my pants down.  It doesn't help that my pants are still a bit big and my tummy isn't very forgiving either.  LOL!

That's amazing. I would love to have an unassisted birth.
