Babies, Bundles, & Bumps #53-Home Birth

Would you ever imagine that someday you might deliver your own precious little baby – by yourself?!

I don’t think that’s a job that many of us would willingly sign up for, but, thank heavens, Todd was up to the task!  Todd is a member of the Graco family, and has the most amazing story to share about the birth of his second son, Lil’Ri.   Todd and his wife had planned and prepared for a home-birth, but with a mid-wife assisting.  Well, Lil’Ri had different plans, and came a little faster than expected (he obviously wanted his daddy to be the very first one to hold him).  Dad safely delivered Lil’Ri at home with the mid-wife walking him through all the necessary steps on the phone.  The mid-wife arrived shortly after the birth to confirm that both mom and baby were healthy and all were very happy.  Nice job, Dad!

Congratulations Todd,  Allison, and big bro Lil’G on the newest addition to your family and thanks for sharing your story with us!

BTW – How awesome are those photos!  Go check out Deb Layden’s beautiful work on her blog!

Do you have an amazing birth or delivery story you’d like to share with us? Or a picture of your precious little one that you’d like featured in our ‘Babies, Bundles, and Bumps’ series?  Share it with us at, and you might see it featured here!

    Wow, how completely amazing, and how very special. To have the one person that you trust more than anyone else deliver your child is fantastic and is such an amazing bond to have in the family.
