Meghan King Edmond’s Instagram page continues to be an adorable stream of baby (and puppy) photos. Who does like cute babies and puppies? She opted for natural childbirth. Um why? It seems to me, that a “knock me out and wake me up when the kid is potty trained” approach would be the wisest option. But hey, it’s your kid. Knock yourself out. Or um, don’t.
Meghan says the baby looks just like Jimmy. I don’t see it. I’ve never understood all of the talk about who the baby looks like. They all look like babies. Maybe it is my facial recognition issues? Whoever she looks like, she is cute as a button.
Here is Meghan’s official announcement:
Our perfect Aspen King Edmonds made her grand entrance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, 6lbs 11oz. From the hours leading up to the birth I had the most incredible husband, he didn’t leave my side. I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula. Jimmy was a constant source of support through every contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn’t do it anymore. He ran baths, helped me walk, helped me breathe, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours. I am so proud and impressed of the team we made to welcome Aspen, our bond is more unshakable than I ever imagined. We have a healthy, strong happy baby who loves breastfeeding and already holding her head up! I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling but I survived unscathed without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet (and Jimmy thinks so too) her birthdate 11/24/16 added up equals her daddy’s baseball number 15 🙂 1+1+2+4+1+6=15 #secondsold #needlefree #naturalbirth #22hoursoflabor #aspenkingedmonds #thanksgivingbaby #inlove #cantstopstaring #birthplanwentasplanned #fullheadofblackhair #warriorbaby ——————– We are deliriously in love with our with our perfect Aspen ??
I can’t believe she didn’t tear at all, though I guess the baby wasn’t that big. Babies in my family are usually nine or ten pounders.
Now that I am at the end of this cute happy post about babies and puppies, I realize that the comments will be full of people oversharing the details of their labor. I probably will not even look. It’s about the babies and puppies!
