Baby Micah was born on Monday morning, October 17th at 9:55 am. He weighed 7 lbs, 14 oz and was 21 inches long. 

 

I haven't typed up the birth story yet, but when I do I'll update the post. He was born at home, in our bed after about seven hours of labor. The first four hours I was having contractions but sleeping in between them and the last three hours were crazy intense. He came out after about seven pushes. Our doula, midwife, and dh were all amazing support people- I couldn't have asked for a better team. Dd was supposed to be there, but because the birth was so fast and hard she ended up waking up and going downstairs to watch Snow White! She came upstairs as her movie ended and saw that her brother had just been born. I feel like everything was aligned to work out perfectly and it did. I'm so grateful!  :)

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