Noah David Smith

My new grandson, Noah David born Tuesday 3rd March 2009 weighing in at 9.5lbs and I was there! Yay!I felt honoured and priveleged to be asked by my son and his wife to be with them as she went through labour and birth. It was so exciting to be there. I loved it. My daughter-in-law was incredible. I'm so proud of her. So proud of them both. A wonderful couple and fantastic parents.
It was an extraordinary night. She did so well. She's very small and Noah's a big baby and yet she gave birth without any intervention. Also helped that she had a midwife that totally believed in her and encouraged her to "hang in" there. There was an obstetrician "hovering" who wanted to intervene but fortunately Noah was born before she had a chance! ha!
He's a beautiful, healthy little boy and much loved by us all not least of all his excited mum, dad and big sister!
I know how incredibly blessed I am to have been with them during such a personal and special time! What a deep joy. Something I'll never forget.
