Welcome to River Quimby - 9/6/13

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 

After waking up at 1:15am on 9/6 to a puddle of water in my bed, River Quimby Smith was born at home in the water on 5:50pm.  8lbs 7oz and 21 inches long, welcomed by big sisters Maiya and Jenevieve.


My second longest labor which was totally exhausting, but despite a low hemoglobin count, I have no tearing or excess bleeding.  It was a successful birth and we're looking forward to incubating with our new family of 5!




More/better photos of the actual baby to follow!!  :)

Thanks, everyone! It's a terrible cell phone photo, but here is one of River's actual face. He's got DH's cleft chin, so we fully anticipate ladykiller status in 16 years! wink1.gif
