After a 10 hour labor Devin Loralei made her entrance! She is 10 PUNDS 14 OUNCES and 21 1/2" LONG!!! It was an absolutely wonderful and almost pain-free birth in the water at home! I only had about 10 painful contractions - yowza - they took my breath away! I was frosting a cake in transition so...WOW!!! I will post more when I am able! Here are some pix!

Jeremy and I in the tub - posing during transistion!

Wow! Congrats!

I think the pics did not load right. There are 3 of you and dh in tub and 1 of your beautiful girls.

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013.   If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!

Congrats!
My daughter was 10.6 & 21 inches and born in the water too! I can't wait to see what her brother (we found out the sex) will weigh! I'm due 4 days before dd's bday. Hope to have as wonderful as a birth as we did with dd. I only pushed for 17 mins which is fine by me!

Enjoy this amazing time! Thank you for having such a wonderful birth! Tell every young girl you meet!

Amazing! Congrats to you and your family. Devin looks absolutely stunning and her big sister looks so proud.

Seems like we are a group of nice fast labors.....here's hoping we are all that way.

Wow, you ladies with the big babes and good labors are really giving me confidence. Thank you for sharing. Dying to hear all the details, but you go have a babymoon for a while and come back for that later.

Thanks for all the well-wishes, Mamas! I will post the birth story soon - I am inhaling a snack while she sleeps and Dh is at the store with the toddler - feeding this one makes me eat like a linebacker!!!
