Lynden Murray was born at home today at around 4pm. Labour was about six hours total, with approx. ten minutes of pushing. Daddy caught his son and stuck him right up on my chest, and everything was absolutely perfect.

Lynden weighs 8lbs 5ozs, which shocked everyone - the midwives were predicting about 6 1/2 lbs and I was sure he couldn't be more than 7. The placenta was HUGE, too! I didn't get very big near the end, so everyone wonders where all that baby & placenta was hiding.

He latched on like an old pro about 20 minutes after his birth, and nursed for a solid two hours. He's been sleeping on the boob and in Daddy's arms for the last little while. Things couldn't be more incredible right now.

Father and Son

First Meal

Happy mama to L (Sept '06), R (Apr '08), R (Apr '10), and G (Mar '12)! - Homemade , Home birthed , Home schooled , Home grown

sorry to be stalking your ddc but I get so excited about the new babies and the birth stories!

Sounds like a fabulous experience! That's neat how he ended up bigger than any of you anticipated!
