It's a GIRL!!!


Elise Mae DePew arrived on May 22nd at 2:57 am in our bathtub.  She came so fast my midwife was not even here yet!  It was an amazing experience to deliver my own baby in the bathtub myself.  I just scooped her up onto my chest and held her.  What a miracle from God!

She weighed in at 8 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches long.  She has been nursing like a pro from the start, I am so thankful for that!  She even sleeps well at night.  We are just loving on her and enjoying her.  I feel like such a blessed mama to have two beautiful children!  More to come later.

Oh, I am so happy for you and your family! :)

Sounds like my last birth, only I was in a hospital.. which made me think, why am I paying to be here when I practically delivered him myself? If we ever have another, it's going to be at home too.

Congratulations and many blessings over your new little one!
