Ava Natalah Cohn

What Annalise Zosel and Murray Cohn of El Prado thought would be just a quick trip to Texas, turned into an early birth experience and the arrival of their daughter, Ava Natalah Cohn. Ava came into the world on July 4th weighing 5 pounds 6.7 ounces. Her big brother Elijah welcomed her with delight! We're sorry to have missed your birth, Ava, but are soooo glad to meet you.

Joah James Tisdel

Here's what Kyle says, "Here are a handful of photos from Joah's birth yesterday -- a magical and transformative experience to say the least. Although we needed to be in the hospital for the birth (as opposed to at home as we planned), it was truly an incredible constellation of people. A dear family friend, Shanti -- who has known Dillon since birth -- was the OB in charge, and we also had two of our beloved midwives also attend. In the end, we were able to have a water birth in the hospital -- the first one ever in Taos. We are now all happy and at home."

Joah James Tisdel was born at 5:30 pm on Saturday July 30th in the water to Dillon and Kyle Tisdel. He is 6 lbs 6 ozs of pure cuteness. It was such a blessed and perfect experience, even with the change in plans. Again and again we see that Taos is the best place in the world to have a baby!
