Baby Amelia has arrived!!

Our newest addition to the Van Sistine arrived on the evening of July 6th at home!! Amelia Elizabeth weighing 9lbs, 2oz and 21 inches long. It was the most wonderful home birth right here in my very own whirlpool tub. I wish I would have done this much sooner, I felt so great to have the comforts of home like my own bed, tub and of course yummy treats. After a day of swimming and walking I finally asked my midwife to break my water at around 9:30pm since I was already dialated to 8cm!!! Within an hour Amelia arrived healthy and happy. We feel so blessed to have been given another daughter. I will be taking a few weeks off to enjoy all of our 4 beautiful girls!!
