My hero

My good friend Brandy gave birth to her second child – a boy named Trajan, who tipped the scales at 9 lbs. 10 oz.(!!) – yesterday at her home.

Her first son weighed 8 lbs., 13 oz. at birth, and we thought *he* was big.

Both births were completely natural and unmedicated, and Brandy is a big believer in Hypnobirthing. It’s also worth mentioning that Brandy is only about 5 ft. 2 in. tall and weighs *maybe* 105 lbs. (if that) when not pregnant.

She is my birth goddess hero.

Congratulations, Brandy! You are an inspiration. And you are woman, hear you roar! 🙂

(By the way, I think this is the last of my pregnant friends to be birthing for a while. You thought the string of births was never going to end, didn’t you? 😉
