I gave birth around 7:45 this morning to a sweet little GIRL. She came a bit quicker than anticipated after 45 minutes of labor and was born into the hands of her mama and papa in our bedroom, quite a magical experience! We were planning a birthcenter birth, but had a falling out with the midwife and didn't know what we were going to do about labor and birth. Things have a way of working out.

Her EDD was 3/28, but she didn't want to wait that long. Her name is Isabella Margaret, daddy calls her Izzy. She weighs 6 pounds 15 ounces and is 20 inches long. Mama, baby, and family are doing well.

Pictures and more info to come later.

Pam

Mama to ds 11, ds 7, dd 5, dd 2, and dd born on 6/17/12!

WHOOPEE Pam

(funny all of the Sept 04 moms migrating over here )

congratulations. Sounds like she was just perfect even if she was "early" (those babies always know when to arrive, don't they?)!
