 “Little boys leave smudges on your heart.” — Art Moms


I can not believe how much this little guy has grown and that he is 6months already! I first met him at his birth 🙂 which was totally awesome and as every birth a life changing moment. (If you have missed the post on his birth click here) He just walked right into my heart with those Sticky Fudge Jeans and have you seen those shoes?!!!!

Yvette and Dan you make a gorgeous family! Keep doing whatever it is you are doing. It’s magical and it’s evident in these pictures. Treasure those hugs and kisses from little Burger and enjoy those smudges in your heart. He left his little smudges all over mine and I can not wait to play with him again!

Why was I so desperate to have a natural birth?
Yes, it would have been a most empowering experience for me and yes my next one will be a VBAC, but was it really that important in the bigger scheme of things? At the end of it all we got what we set out to achieve – a human being that we could guide and mould and set free into the world for her to make her own impact. Maybe that trauma she and I both endured in getting her Earthside happened exactly how it was supposed to. That’s birth and even more so parenting – you set off on a course with big plans and that’s great, but there has to be flexibility and acceptance in changing course depending on whatever life (or your kid) throws at you.

After a minute or so we heard your first loud cry. It was glorious and we could finally breathe. Sr Lotter brought you to us and our hearts melted, my boy. You were beautiful. We checked for 10 fingers and 10 toes and we couldn’t stop looking at you. The happiest moment of our lives. You were born at 11:33 weighing 3.49kg and measuring 53cm.
