She was born a little before 6:30 this evening, at home, on the toilet lol.gif at 40w 1d.

 

She's 8lbs 7oz 21" long. I can't say it was easy, but it is over and she's healthy and I'm healthy and everything is great. She's already a nursing champ. Love her! Daddy loves her, DS1 LOVES her and DS2 well, I can't say he loves her yet (he's 2) but he thought her feet and hair were really cool. hehe

 

A friend of mine took over 300 photos so I will be back to share once she sends me some.

Congratulations!!!!

On the toilet, lol.  My midwife's emergency instructions to DH (if things were moving too fast and we ended up U/C'ing) included keeping me off the toilet.  I sort of rolled my eyes at that, but I have to say, DH took it seriously enough to make sure all my toilet trips were in and out fast, even in early labor.  ;)

 

I can't wait to see pics of Calliope.  Take it easy, get lots of rest, and enjoy your little girl!  love.gif
