Happy birthday to youuuuuuuuuuuu.....!

Enough with the grainy ipod pics!  Can you believe I went into labor on a not-Friday?  And also he was born that same day?  A one hour birth (literally ONE hour) deserves it's very own birth story for sure, but these photos I cannot not share while they're all still letting me do nothing.

John Charles "Charlie" Borobia; Thursday, June 5th 2014; 8lbs 14 oz, 22 inches long



I should be SO embarrassed to share this and Lizzy is going to kill me one day, but how can you not laugh at this ridic "like mother like daughter" frumpy dump ugly pajama action?

    And look at you! The belly's gone! I bet you feel light as a feather. You look fantastic.

  70. Oh my gosh Dwija, seriously, you are making me want to go into labor right now just so I could inhale that newborn scent that is practically wafting through the computer screen. He is so adorable and I love all the pics with the kids and your hubby. And no, I am nowhere close to going into labor (at least I hope not)…but August 14th can't get her quick enough! Congratulations again, so sweet and I love the name!

  80. What stands out about that PJ pic is how beautiful you are. Seriously. :)

    Congrats! My births have been as short as three hours, so I'm hoping it never gets any shorter! I canNOT believe you delivered this baby alone.

    Here's some special information:
    Being born 'with the caul' occurs when a child is delivered with a portion of amniotic membrane on their face. 'Caul' literally means 'helmeted head' or 'veil'.
    A baby with the caul is called the 'caulbearer'.
    Being born with the caul in medieval times was interpreted as a sign of good luck and that the child was destined for greatness.
    Saving the caul was considered an important tradition of childbirth. The midwife would rub a sheet of paper across the baby's head and face, pressing the material of the caul onto the paper.
    It would then be presented to the mother, to be kept as an heirloom.
    Other traditions have linked the caul to fertility and some say it protects a person from the forces of evil, such as witches and sorcerers.
    Being born 'en caul' is the term used when the child is born within an intact amniotic sac, which occurred in the story above. It is also known as a 'veiled birth'.
    Most en caul births occur in premature babies.
    Some legends suggest that being born en caul means you will never drown.
    Statistics relating to such births are sparse, but deliveries involving any form of caul are thought to occur in roughly one in 80,000 births.
