“beautiful, beautiful, beautiful… beautiful boy” –john lennon

the plans were made. the date was set. decor was ready. a baby shower for my pretty little sister, natalie. she’d safely made it to 37 weeks. a huge happiness for her and her babe. this had to be celebrated. that – and the fact that she is carrying her first son. baby jack.

2009-06-24 baby jack us larson girls love a good blessing way. everything was prepared with her in mind. her favorite colors {bright green}, her super girl ability to grow things strong {both babies – and plants} her love of all things natural {unbleached linen & hemp} and of course her free spirit. while the baby shower element was definitely there in the form of sweet gifts and belly touching. the absence of silly games made way for us to celebrate this growing season of hers. we sat in a circle and linked all of us women together with string. each giving her a blessing of love support. tears were shed and hope was shared.

i love my sister, natalie. she is fearless. keeps things to herself and just does what she’s got to do.  this included a nightly ritual of this in order to keep jack happy, healthy and strong. during my pregnancy with gavin i was always reminded of the things she did for presley both before & after she was born. this carried me when i thought my hands were sooooo swollen or that i was just tooooo tired.

i got a call in the wee hours of this morning that this baby boy… this jack …this first son of natalie will be making his debut soon. today we will play soft music, quietly go about our day and send all of our sweet labor love out into the universe as she begins this adventure. much love to my beautiful sister-friend.
love, lindsay
