Wow. God has blessed me with 3 sons!
Danny Arlo Rolston was born after a short labour (for my standards at least!) in water at home at 7:10pm. Birthed completely by his mama (me! :) ) who was very surprised at how fast he chose to enter this world!! The midwife was only here for the last 7 minutes and the kids, who had gone out to have dinner with my mum, missed it entirely!!
Other stats: 9lb 4oz, 41 weeks 2 days gest
Pics to follow soon....I'm off to snuggle with my baby some more...mmmmmm~~

First thing I did was sew this sweet lil piece of innocence:
I had intended it to be a brooch?? But just not convinced about brooches...yet. I need to submerge into the craft culture a bit further before I'm comfy at that level I think!
Anyway, I just adore her - she's entirely reversible and made from one of absolute fave pieces of fabric (which is steadily getting smaller and smaller, sob! ) I need to find her a home where I can see her often... i.e. somewhere around the kitchen sink!!
I have approximately 2 hours left before I'm wife/mum/(hopefully) home-birther again :)

She came to personally thank me for the journal I had made for them to collect their sweetest memories and pictures of their sister and daughter. She was lovely and it didn't seem as traumatically awkward as I was expecting! She said she absolutely loved it (couldn't stop crying apparently) and has booked into scrapbooking classes especially so she can make a good job of it. Yah!!
She had her son (5) and baby girl (7 weeks - just 2 weeks old at the time Isabella passed away!!) with her...beautiful kids. She was saying how she just loved having 3 children...for 2 weeks. *bawl*
She took my number and promised to keep in touch over the holidays. I hope so.
I'm SO pleased she visited. And I'm so relieved the journal was recieved well.

Been longing longing for solitude all day. Been feeling very emotional and I'm also pretty sure baby dropped d..o..w..n.

My sweet niece Cheyenne (newly returned from Australia) was the first to draw in my new book:
