Whew! Peter Frederick's home birth!

Wow!

Peter Frederick was born on Monday, January 22, at 10:48 am
He weighed 6 pounds and 12 ounces and was 19 inches long

He has a head full of light blonde hair!

His birth was really great -- he was born on the bed after just three pushes. Gee, "just" doesn't quite cover it -- it was hard! :

Labor was longer this time -- a bit of a surprise. It was about 12 hours, and very mild until the last two. And then, well, you know!

I am feeling great, and I can't believe how much I love Peter! He is so precious! And my DS loves him, too. He is so proud to be a big brother (he's three and a half). My milk came in last night, and Daniel (older DS) was so thrilled! He tried a few minutes' worth of taste and then gave up. I guess he really is weaned! How about that?

And here are some pictures from the birth
