On Friday, December 8, 2006, after a 12-hour labour, baby Wyatt Kemis made his arrival.

He joined us in our living room, in a pool of water, surrounded by his older siblings, our doula, mama, and daddy.

He is 9lbs 2oz and 21 inches long.

Cora May was born on December 13 at 6:40am. She's 7lbs 8oz, 20 1/4 inches long, and was born after just six hours of labor and a mere ten minutes of pushing!

It was a wonderful homebirth, and she's nursing like a champ now. We're in love.

Ingrid Stacia was born November 12, 11:30 AM, at 34 weeks. We had planned a homebirth, but b/c of her early arrival, we went to the hospital where she was delivered vaginally. She weighed 5lbs, 13.5 oz, 19 inches long, and was absolutely perfect. After 6 days in the NICU, we brought her home.

Lily Scout was born peacefully at home Dec 27th at 4:19am after 1.45 hrs of intense labor. 8lbs (its a guess...will fill in details later but it involves a schizo scale!) 21 inches long caught by mom, nursing MANIAC! DS#2 watched the birth from the bed eating M&M's...DS#1 decided he'd rather not...he stayed in his room and played video games (sigh....8 yr olds....)

Erica Juliet arrived Dec 28th at 12:05 am - our third Thursday baby! - 10 days and 5 minutes late

She's a wee 6lbs 13oz, 20.5" - I'm so glad she is little because she didn't flex her head to be born and a bigger baby would have caused me some trouble.

Born in the hospital - we planned for home but once the mw broke my water we discovered some pretty thick meconium. Caused no problems at all but wanted to be safe. She didn't need any suctioning.

She's nursing well and a wonderful baby

Demar Augustus "Gus" was born at 5:37 a.m. on January 1, 2007. He was born in the tub into Daddy's waiting arms, and his big sister woke up just in time to cut his cord. He weighed 9 lbs., 11 oz. and was 22 1/4 inches long. After three days of false labor, it took him about 8 hours to get here, including some looooong pauses with nothing happening. He's a great nurser, happy and healthy.
