HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY LUCA!!!
I can’t believe it’s been one full year since we met. I love you so much and I would go through all of the trials of pregnancy/birth/postpartum again and again if I that’s what I had to do to keep you in my life. True to your name, you bring light wherever you go. I thank God for you every day. 
This morning, on your first birthday, you snuggled-up next to me, still asleep. Tears came to my eyes as I recalled the events of this day one year ago. I didn’t even know if you were a boy or a girl yet! I can’t believe how much has changed in this past year. I have grown so much and of course, so have you! The 3 of us are all figuring this out together as we grow. 
I love you Luca Bear! Thank you for…

Studies seem to show it facilitates it and that was just one reason to point me in the direction of an unmedicated birth. (Which I’d like to note, with no shame whatsoever, my birth was NOT completely unmedicated, for details you can read the story here.) […]
