Just a few weeks ago, my third daughter, Aysia Mae was born! She’s a sweet addition to our family, and definitely a mama’s girl. Sometimes she’ll let me hold her without crying, but she doesn’t like being away from her mom for long.
Everything went perfectly with the birth, which we did in our home bathtub with a doctor and midwife present. Home births aren’t common in Costa Rica, but we’re so glad we made that choice. It was a beautiful birth and much more comfortable than our last two hospital births.
Aysia came almost a month early, was just under 6 pounds, and mommy and baby are in perfect health. Emily and Marie are enjoying being older sisters, but anxiously awaiting the day when Aysia can get up and play with them.
And now I present, Aysia Mae Pearce! Thanks to my mom for taking these awesome pictures.
