Mayana, our dear friend and upholding member of our knitting circle, gave birth this Wednesday to little girl, and she and her husband couldn't be happier! Frankly neither could I. I am so very proud of them, they all did so well.
Mayana had a home birth and I was able to be there for some of the experience. It was the first birth I have ever been part of, I don't have words for everything I learned from it. The pain that Mayana welcomed and endured as part of the process was so much deeper and longer than I imagined. Unlike the movies, there is no cutting to the end shot of baby happy in mothers arms, the whole thing takes such a long time. Mayana had such strength.
Of course there was craftwerk this week and many other busy happenings but none of that matters. Just look at the baby.
anyway, we are off for a weekend at the family batch so I will be internet free for a couple of days. see you later.
