I joked after our littlest lady made her pretty swift entry into the world, that I wouldn't be writing up an epic, multi-part birth story like I had for her big brother and her big sister. But as it turns out, however quick these things go, they are still full of memories and moments and emotions that I want to remember. So when I began writing up my third birth story, it ended up being long story to tell after all.

part one, part two, part three, part four, part five, part six

And if you don't have time to read all of that, or if you simply really like a birth story, then we also have a video of her birth. It's not the gory details, just some snippets of labour and her first hours in the world. I think it will always be one of my favourite ever videos... and one day I'll be able to sit through it without tears.
