The latest addition crept quietly into nicole and stef's life

Aiden Tyr Panusa....was born at home on Saturday, April 12th 2003 at 9:26am. He came into this world met by outstretched, loving, ungloved hands and into natural lighting with no drugs or medical intervention. He was not poked, prodded or pricked. He has been held almost exclusively since birth and is very calm, relaxed, and yet aware of his surroundings.
