What a beautiful, peaceful,loving world baby Banjo was brought into. You did an amazing job Em, it is not easy giving birth to a baby over 10lbs, believe me, I know! My 10 pounder is now a 6foot 2in 27 year old policeman. I am, and always have been so proud of my big strong boy.
Enjoy the journey.


What a beautiful story, it brought tears to my eyes! congratulations, ya did good!


Congratulations. You have another gorgeous baby and such a wonderful story. Wishing nothing but tons of happiness to you and your beautiful family.

He is so beautiful. How wonderful that you were able to have him at home and that the girls could join in the experience. Love the photo of Ivy and Banjo - you have a wonderful little babysitter in the making


Tears. SO LOVELY. Glad you finally got the birth that you wanted. I know how important that is. Doing it your way is the most empowering thing there is! Congratulations. And seriously, LOVE THAT NAME. Wish I'd thought of it. He's gorgeous. I hope his feet aren't as big as his head and his booties fit!


oh bless... what a darling. He looks like Mick already!! I have been hanging out waiting for this post, checking a million times a day! Love ya xoxo


Congrats Em! He is a little darling. :)


I read your blog regularly and find it very inspiring, although I never leave any comments. However here I wish to send you my sincerest congratulations and best wishes to all the family. He is a gorgeous little boy.

Oh Em! He is absolutely beautiful!!! Maybe i am extra mushy because my sister just gave birth to my first nephew a couple of weeks ago, but I am so happy for you, mick, ivy and yindi :) Makes me want to go and sew some baby things (not for me, for you and my sis lol) Congrats from the other side of the country (Blue Mountains)!!!


Absolutely adorable!
Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm really looking forward to get pregnant again soon.

Yet, Ivy the baby whisperer is very welcome to our home if she ever decided to visit Finland. Soon, I hope! :)


42 years ago I gave birth to a 10 pound baby girl, in a hospital with medical people -- WOW I am so impressed! What a beautiful boy - Ivy looks so sweet "whispering" him to sleep - What was Yindi's reaction? I can't wait to see more photos - you have a beautful family -- God has blessed you!!


Aww! I'm so glad you were finally able to experience the birth you've always wanted. He's beautiful and perfect just like the girls. Congratulations again!


Congratulations from Spain! Your family is wonderful.


What a gorgeous boy! Well done Em on achieving the birth you wanted.
Love and hugs to you all.

What a beautiful story! Congrats to all of you.


He is perfect! You did an awesome job bringing him into the world! So happy you were able to bring him in the way you'd hoped! Enjoy every little baby moment!


Absolutely beautiful! It's really brought me back to a few years ago. Thank you so much for sharing!


Big Banjo is amazingly beautiful. He looks like Yindi as a baby. Congratulations on a job well done now enjoy your new addition!
