and baby makes three

As you've probably guessed from my absence on the blog, our sweet baby is finally here! and...

It's a BOY!!!

Pretty precious, right?!
Sage was born on June 14th after a long but amazing 25 hours of labor.
We had a home water birth, and it was the best experience ever.
It was just me. Matt and our two midwives.
The whole birth process was so calm and peaceful. Just how I hoped it would be.
Our midwifes were so laid back, and totally let us do our own thing. They kept checking on baby's and my heart rate, then would just give us space to labor how we wanted.
In the contractions right before the birth I would push and then in between we were talking and smiling knowing that our baby was almost here.
When his little head finally came out, Matt called out 'We have a head', and as soon as Matt's hand was there he felt a little hand grab onto his finger. Then he yelled out '...and a hand!'
When the midwifes came in I asked if it was okay to keep pushing with his hand out {I had heard bad things about babies coming out with arms up.} But they said to go on, and before I knew it I was pulling my baby out of the water and onto my chest!
There was at least a minute of snuggling and kissing before I even though to look if it was a boy or girl.
When I lifted him off my chest and saw that he was in fact a boy, I told him how he fooled everyone, because they all thought he would be a girl!
He was born at 10:47pm. The midwifes left by about 2am and we were out by 2:30! I hadn't slept in two days and was exhausted. Sage must have known, because he slept until 6 and then after a quick diaper change and a feeding went back to sleep for a few more hours. He's such a great baby!

He's now almost 4 weeks old! I can't believe how fast the time has gone by!
He is so big too! He is already wearing 3 month clothes! And his socks are 6 months!

He's already met a lot of his family, been to the beach, a farm, and on a camping trip! He's a busy little man!
Here's just a little bit of his cuteness from the past few weeks! There will be more to come, don't worry!

As I am typing this {one handed} he is sleeping in my arms like the perfect little boy that he is!
I'm loving this whole mommy thing, and just can't get enough of this little man!
