Welcome sweet baby Marlow!

It was a bit of a wait, but she’s finally here, and she couldn’t have been any cuter or any more perfect: Marlow Mae Adamo was born at 7:11 this morning. Courtney gave birth to her in the birthing pool, and it was a beautiful and amazing natural birth experience. I’m so happy, and so proud!

Isn’t it amazing, carrying this little life for nine months, not knowing when, or how he or she will be born, the wait, the anticipation, the insecurity… And then, suddenly, she is here, and look how perfect she is! Look at that sweet little face… Life is beautiful. Courtney, you are beautiful. I love you guys!

Congratulations, what a gorgeous baby with such beautiful dark hair. The name Marlowe suits her perfectly and i am sure Ivy is super happy to be a big sister – those girls are going to have such a special bond. I’m sure Ivy will be teaching Marlowe how to be a girl e.g. the love of pink at soon as she can.
