It’s another girl for the Hukin family!!  Now that is one big brother with five little sisters to watch over.

10 days late!!!!

Born October 15th, 2008


9 pounds, 4 ounces

21 inches

This is her, only minutes after being born in our bathtub.  Amy was awoken with labor pains at 3 am.  Woke Simon up about 3:30.  We prepared the bedroom and bathroom for birth and called the midwife around 4.  The midwife and assistants arrived around 5.  Out she popped at 6:21.  It was a peaceful birth with soft music and candlelight.  She didn’t come out crying, she just looked at all of us with as much awe as we looked at her.

So why do we have our babies at home, we’ll have to get to that question soon.  In our minds it’s the only place babies should be born.
