I was continuing to trust the process and journey of that birth and would walk out on my deck and nibble from my own redbud tree and rubbing my belly. Once my baby Silas did enter the world on that April day it was incredible in my arms, in my home, surrounded by amazing people. Some friends brought a tree for Silas to celebrate his birth about a week later and low an behold it was a Redbud tree. We had a ceremony and buried the placenta under the redbud tree. Every year since then we all nibble from the tree and take in a part of ourselves.
I told Silas yesterday we we remarked on how incredible the redbuds are that he will always know his birthday is near when he sees the redbud trees! Go nibble on a blossom and try its sweetness, try one for Silas! One more week to go till my babies birthday! Remember I warned you on the sentimental posts!! haha-
There is no way I can ever see Redbuds the same- pretty fitting for Cesarean Awareness Month- remember ICAN this April.
