Friend, organic farmer, muse:  Aluna Michelle gave birth to her son, Leo Alexander, on August 9th:


It is my great joy to announce the arrival of my son, Leo Alexander, a healthy baby boy weighing in at 6 lbs 4 oz. and born at home on August 9th, 2014.  Leo came remarkably on time, just a day after his due date (much to his mama's chagrin - she had banked on a late arrival, but instead was busy getting the house ready for the homebirth between contractions during labor!).  All Hail to doula Bella and midwife Augustine Colebrook and team, who were incredible and held vigil throughout the labor.  The birth was amazing and gave Leo's mama infinite respect for all mothers everywhere throughout time.  Mama and Baby are doing well, and slowly coming (back) into the world from the realm of childbirth and newborn-ville where time is marked by the number of minutes napped or bites of food one can catch in between nursings, diaper changings, burpings, and the oh-so-delicate process of lulling Baby to sleep.  Leo's twelve days old now, and Mama's finally figured out how to type one-handed while nursing in the dark long enough to write to you all!
