I had my baby- 2 days past my due date! It turned out to be a boy, much to Lula's disappointment. She was convinced we were expecting a baby Cecilia, but I think she's getting over it.

I'll write a birth story soon. For now, I'll say he was born at home, just me and his daddy to welcome him. We have no real idea how much he weighs, but he seems smaller than Lula was (8#) so we're guessing 7ish. He's got the fattest cheeks and so much hair, and he pretty much looks like the loser in a boxing match- all squinty eyes and big nose. But I think he's going to look just like his Papi.

Here's a link to my labor and baby pictures: warning, some of them are sorta nudie. Not too much for mdc ladies, who are used to breasts etc, but YKWIM! And there are a couple of the placenta. :LOL

Congratulations!!! My dd is about Lula's age - she was hoping for a girl, too...but a week and a half later, could not be more in love with her brother! Hope that happens for Lula too - and for your sake, that it happens SOON!

Thanks for sharing - love the pics! Congrats!

I have to ask - did you end up using your pool or did you just stay in your tub??? We have a tub about that size and the pool is also blown up and ready to go....

Kristi- You look like a total Goddess!

PS- Marcos looks kinda big to me for 7 lbs. Aurora is 2 oz. shy of 7 lbs. and she is way littler than him. I bet he's pretty close to 8.
When we had DD Unassisted we weighed her using a gallon of water. A gallon of water weighs 8.14 lbs. She was about the same! :LOL

Congratulations!
