Dashiel Knight Johnson was born Sunday, May 31 at 7:35 am. At the time of his birth he was 7 lbs 8 oz and 21 inches long. We were very blessed to have the opportunity to have our precious little boy born at home with the assistance of a midwife. It was such an amazing experience. Our midwife, Mary, was an incredible coach and took such good care of us. I was able to have a completely natural child birth. After one hour of pushing, with my husband at my side the whole time, our son was placed on my abdomen. Our son looked up at me and I knew we would name him Dashiel Knight. I pulled Dashiel to my chest and held him close. Suddenly, in one moment, the nine months of carrying him all came to a close as we got to experience the joy of that moment. We are so happy to have our little boy and we love seeing his personality shine in just the few days since he was born.
