Sage (still deciding on middle name) was born at 7 :05 pm on 6/9/2007 (my birthday is 9/6/72) weighing 7 lbs 14 0z and 21 inches long. She was born in warm water into Moss's arms.
There just are no satisfactory words !
The song that was playing as she emerged was Moody Blues, "With the Eyes of a Child", perfect..
Needless to say we are in a state of bliss and exhaustion with few words that really convey at this point all that we are feeling and the realizations we are having. I did not expect to be feeling SO much so quickly, especially after initially feeling nothing, just very neutral.
We three are enjoying our baby moon and want to thank everyone for all the love and energy sent our way. The following photo was taken at just a few hours old by my dear friend Jackie Wollner, who was there at the birth offering her strength, love and wonderful talent as a photographer. Thank you Jackie for everything..
Of course, a detailed birth story and more photos to follow shortly....
The above pic is two hours after birth. The following are exactly one week to the day she was born, she just gets more beautiful seemingly every minute....
