Baby #6, Declan, was born Sunday morning at almost sunrise, after 12 days of prodromal labor and an awesome 12 minutes of pushing!  We had planned a water birth at home, and successfully pulled it off, making Declan the 5th Davidsson baby born at home, and 3rd water baby!  His siblings woke up an hour later to the sound of “new baby meowing sounds” and were ecstatic to finally get to meet their new little bubby!  At 9 pounds 10 ounces, Declan is my biggest baby by far, and has this whole nursing thing DOWN!  Today was his first babywearing experience so I could video tape his oldest brother’s birthday cake and singing (Eli turned 8 today and said that his baby brother was his BEST present!) and I chose a Sakura Bloom LINEN RING SLING in Blackberry to wear!  Declan was swaddled in a light muslin blanket aready so I popped the entire baby burrito upright into the sling with his head nice and high – close enough to kiss – and the tail wrapped around the rings just in case Baby Declan slipped a bit in the sling.
