francesca alma antonia

born october 30th, 2012 at 7:33 am.

the minute she came into the world all other names fell by the wayside. we chose francesca for it's meaning (free) and alma because of her sweet countenance.

how has she been with us for a month? i feel like the map of my life has been redrawn and i am slowly navigating my way through it. elodie felt a little foreign in the first few days after we came home and i'm starting to find my way back to her through each cuddle and kiss.

the birth was perfect and i want to share my thoughts on it before the memories shift. for now, i am bathing in the beauty of this new little spirit.

we’ve all been waiting for you.
for you.
your arrival has been marked, has been recorded
on earth,
in the universe,
in the galaxies,
in all of space,
in all of time.
you come with a birthright, written in love and sung
through all creation in words which promise
that no matter where you’re at,
you’re home
that no matter who you’re with,
you’re welcome
that no matter who you are,
you’re loved.

  1. What a beautiful girl. Congratulations to you and your family.

  2. Congratulations! I know exactly what you mean about Elodie feeling foreign. When my youngest was born, my (then) four year old seemed to take off with my husband while I focused on the baby. It felt a bit strange, like "that one's yours, this one's mine" but it eventually evened out again and everything was wonderful. Wishing you all the happiest adjustment - with lots of cuddles and kisses.
