He’s here!

Noah_feet1_500Welcome to the world, little beautiful baby Noah… I have no words to describe how amazing this little chap is, but I know they will come to me soon. Just need to get a good night's sleep, one of the major perks of being an auntie (you get to come home). But i miss him like crazy, and I miss his mummy even more. She endured a 26-hour labour and was so brave, so amazing, so primal warrior-woman. It was an honour to help bring him into this world; I will never forget how his face looked as he slipped from my sister into the waiting hands of the (lovely and sweet) doctor……

Noah Irving Birkbeck, born at 7:57pm on April 1st 2010

    Love those Polas!!!!! Gorgeous baby: I love how his feet are still wrinkly from being inside. He looks so intense. :) I agree about the auntie perks: getting to go home. I have 4 nieces/nephews who I love, but haven’t felt the need to have one of my own. Just wait till Noah can watercolor…nothing cooler than little person paintings: wild and free. :)

  49. Micheline

    Congratulations to everyone and a warm welcome to Noah. Your photographs are so beautiful. They’ll be treasured forever.

  50. Steve

    I have to say this as Susannah never will. I cannot express enough how inspirational, supportive and fantastic Susannah was as a birthing partner for Abby Noah and Me. Having only brothers for siblings to experience full on sisterhood at such a precious time was a privilege indeed, I now feel honoured to be part of the Conway sisterhood. There is now a “glue” between us, a bond so strong it can never be broken, a beautiful thing. Neither can I convey the pride and awe I have for Abby,now and forever, calmness personified in what was a problematic childbirth and as far removed from our plans as possible. Noah is already in the breastfeeding groove, props to the Abs, lol. Of course Noah is uber gorgeous and wonderful BUT Susannah is the best and most beautiful Auntie in the world, cant thank you enough Sis love you, xxx
    and thanks to all you bloggers for supporting her and for your touching kind words. Steve “Who’s the daddy” Birkbeck.

  51. Ariella

    ahhh, precious. It brought back memories of my own experiences in birthing. It is an amazing process to be a part of.

  52. Kelly Jeanette

    Awwww, he’s a cutie. Great photos of his beginning. Congrats on becoming an auntie. Take from an aunt of six, you’ll have loads of fun with this little guy.

  53. The Shutter

    Congrats Susannah to you and your family. These pictures are just beautiful.

  54. Honora

    Congratulations! Being an Aunt is, well, pretty much the best thing in the world! Enjoy.

  55. Susan

    I’m so happy for all of you! (I have 10 nieces & nephews & the youngest is another Noah–perfect name.) Enjoy & Steve’s celebration of you & your sister is lovely.

  56. Christine

    Lovely news, congratulations! These photos are so beautiful, and take me back to being a student midwife. There is nothing else like the energy of birthing, and getting to welcome a new little human being. He’s so lucky to have such a wonderful welcoming committee! oxox

  57. Trish

    wonderful news!

  58. Zarina

    Congratulations … Sara, my first baby, born in August and I can not wait to feel the same emotions you are feeling with the arrival of baby Noah!!

  59. Kitty Douglas

    Noah you are going to become overwhelmed with the love that your Aunt has for you, I can already see it in what you have posted Susannah!

    Congratulations! Noah is absolutely angelic.
    I came across something recently … something I wish to share with you and your sister. It embodies how I feel about my own motherhood.
    “I bear the mark of my children on my body and soul. I shall carry them in my heart forever. Though I am far from perfect, my love for them is.”
