Oliver Richard has arrived in all his 10 lb 3 oz glory! He was 18 days past my EDD, and worth every extra minute we had to wait. It wasn't any fun getting him out - not only was his head 15 1/8", but he had his arms crossed over his barrel chest AND the cord wrapped around his neck and arms - but with some painful manuevering my amazing midwife got him dislodged. So we had the homebirth we hoped for, although Oli only had half a waterbirth since after his head was born I had to stand up to get the rest of him out (with all the help previously mentioned).

We're all crazy in love with him, and so so so glad he's earthside!

Mama to Sophia (2/25/04) , Oliver (10/24/06) , and Norah (3/2/10).

Congratulations! Sounds like Oliver made quite an entrance! Excellent work on your part -- I can't imagine having to move around and stand after the head was out, but you did it! Enjoy your babymoon!
