Lark Hart

born Friday, March 11th at 11:07 pm after 24 hours of  natural labor
weighing 7 lbs 11 oz. and 19 1/2 in. long

Right after she was born instead of screaming at the top of her lungs she started making soft crying sounds just like a little bird. It was so sweet and funny that we immediately nicknamed her our little Lark, or Larkie. So, that is the nickname I will call her on the blog.

So far she is a dream baby and the only difficult thing I am dealing with is my blessing of having more than enough milk supply! I'll write my birth story when I get a chance. I used the hypnobirthing method and had an incredible pain-free experience that I still almost can't believe... 

Thank you for all your well wishes! We are so happy she is part of our family now. Hope to get things back to normal here soon, but right now cuddle time is my number one priority :)

p.s. so far it looks like she inherited her daddy's dimples... I am crossing my fingers!


  1. oh she is darling, and i love the name! so pretty. glad to hear hypno-birthing went well for you, i've been looking into it. hope you all are getting some rest!

  2. Yay! I was just wondering if you had a name yet! She's beautiful and I love her name!

    And I'm so glad it went well!! Sounds a lot like my labor!

  8. congrats she is beautiful and looks just like the little miss!

  9. She's absolutely lovely! Did you take hypnobirthing classes or did you self-study? I'm due in a month and have been independently studying to aid my little ones birth but I hear it's something that only works with lessons and what not. I just figured it couldn't hurt to at least try and learn something! And for your sweet girl to enter this world quiet as a bird, I feel like you definitely did the right thing!
