Evelyn Rey was born at home on December 22, 2016, and weighed 7lb 14oz. Her mama sailed on the waves of a quick labor, all the while convinced there were hours left to be worked through.
It was a peaceful birth, candlelit and quiet, on a cool Winter morning. Evy’s grandmother lives in the neighborhood; our paths crossed in the front yard at dawn as I was packing up my mobile office. I always feel so proud of these strong women, when a new mother introduces a fresh babe to the matriarch.
