ethan sidney miller arrived right on his due date, august 5, to join our family. he was named after my grandfather, sidney, one of the most outspoken, opinionated, funny, and inspiring people i've known. and whose ninety-sixth birthday would have been yesterday. the last couple of weeks before his birth were a beautiful, quiet, slow time and we've had much of the same since. of course, the three days of labor and birthing were quite the ride. he was born naturally at a birth center and there is nowhere i would have rather been to bring him into this world. i was blessed to have the most incredible birth team, including jared, our doula, two midwives, and a nurse. we are blissfully settling into babyland over here. and i can't believe it's already been over a week since his arrival. it seems impossible that he hasn't been here all along.

more soon.
