Let LIGHT shine



Saturday, Feb 19th light filled our lives once again. After a fast labor and beautiful water birth our sweet little winter boy (!) crossed over the rainbow bridge and into our arms.


*cough* Please don't mind my crazy ponytail hair action above!

We named him Lucian. Lucian is Latin and is the masculine form of Lucia (As in St. Lucia),and it means light. Not only is he filling our lives with light and happiness but his birth month of February also marks the beginning of the return of the sun after months of darkness. As you can see, Lucian seemed so very appropriate for him.





We are all so smitten with this little guy. He adores K and her singing.



He was 8lbs 11 oz at birth, our biggest baby yet, so he just barely fit into some of his mama made clothes.





Oh how I love little tiny baby legs and feet





...not to mention cute little fingers!







Welcome to the world!!

Warmest congratulations, Nicole! He is a beautiful boy and I'm so moved by the name you chose for him - it's absolutely perfect! I know you have so very much going on right now, but I too am wondering about Lucian's lovely pilot cap - I assume you knitted it yourself? If so, could you share the pattern? I'm knitting for a little one as well. :)

Again, congratulations!

Hugs,
Mari-Ann

Earth Mama said...

So So sweet! Congratulations to you and your beautiful family. My last two were water births. Babies just have a way of making everything all better no matter what. We were in the beginnings of our financial struggles exactly two years ago, right before the birth of my fourth. When he was born, everything fell into perspective and our hearts no longer had room for all of our financial worries. They were still there, and still are, but shifting my perspective to the light changed a lot at that time. Happy baby mooning!
