Sometimes birth doesn’t go the way you plan it.
That is the way it was for Leo’s parents.
They were in Moscow that day, April 16, 2017, visiting family members and preparing to celebrate Easter. Leo’s mama started having contractions in the wee morning hours and before any of us knew it, she was having them 2-3 min apart!! There was no way she was going to make it back to Coeur d’Alene to have her home birth, so they detoured to the local hospital.
Though this wasn’t the plan for Leo’s birth, he obviously had other ideas. He was born at 8:18 a.m. He weighed 7 lbs 4 oz and measured 20 inches tall. We couldn’t wait for them to get home so we could meet this beautiful, determined young man. Just look at those perfect little lips!! And that hair!!! Oh my heart!!
Leo is his parents 3rd child, 2nd son and 1st HazelTree Baby!!
