Introducing.....

Brooks Lynn Harding
8lbs 15 .5 oz
21 inches long
Mothers Day May 10, 2009
6:38 am
Brooks was our very first choice 9 months ago. We named her Brooks after Phil's brother who died in a car accident and also his other brother Lynn-my favorite brother in law:).

Sleeping, what she does best-thanks to the Harding's narcolepsy!
Okay she looks totally possessed here. They just did her eyes.
It was an amazing birth experience. Much better than my experience with Boston. I was able to have a Vbac with Brooks. Labor was 10 hours, pushed for an hour and what a cool feeling to have her and Phil cheering us on. He was a great support and we are so lucky to have him around.

Daddy's little girl! She is so precious and beautiful.
Welcome home Brooks.

I put this picture in because she looks just like Boston did and was in the same position minus the ICU. Even had the same teddy bear monitor! No tubes or crazy shots for this kiddo!

Congratulations, Miken and Phil. I like it when there's family significance to baby's names. I hope all goes well to adjustmest at home with two little ones. And waxing cheese - I never knew you could do that!

Congratulations!!!! She's beautiful! Can't wait to see more and more pictures, make sure you take tons during those first few months, they change so much. Boston doesn't even look like the same person as he did during his first 3 months of life. And super congrats on the VBAC!
