I had my daughter on Sunday at 2:22PM...after a 36 hour labor (hence the delay in posting her arrival...I've been tired!). Luckily I have the most amazing midwife ever and was able to keep my homebirth, no transfer! Elodie weighed in at 7lbs even, 19" long, and latched perfectly before her daddy even cut the cord. Will update later with pictures and birth story :)

Congrats and Welcome baby Elodie! I had a long labor with my first as well and I know how crazy the combination of exhausted and elated feel. Hope you are resting up well and being taken care of!


Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!

Congratulations! What a beautiful name, I can't wait to see pictures and hear the whole story! And make sure you get plenty of rest, those long labors are tough to bounce back from.
