Baby Ella came just before noon after 5 1/2 hours of labor. It was a fantastic home waterbirth, exactly as perfect as I could have envisioned it. She's 8 lb 1 oz and nursed like a pro, though she's been asleep all day since! I feel terrific, so much better than being pregnant... I can roll over in bed!

My big kids are thrilled with their new sister, even my son who I figured would be too cool to care.

Hang in there to the mamas still waiting... its so worth it.

Kat

Whew, how short and sweet! Welcome, baby Ella! Congrats, Kat.

Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!

Oh! I am so happy for you. And so surprised! We were due on the same day! Send some of that baby energy over this way!

I'm so glad you're feeling good -- I can't wait for that either.

Ella is a lovely name; I'm sure she's a lovely girl, too! CONGRATULATIONS!

It is so neat that the older kids are excited, too!

Jean, happy HS mom to Peter (5), Daniel (9) and Lucie (2) and also someone new... baby.gif
