I will write josiah william's whole birth story later, but just wanted to share that we welcomed our precious son into the world in a home waterbirth at 4:30am this morning! it was a pretty quick labor and he was born into daddy's hands with the help of our mw. he is just 37w 4d and weighs 3.1kg (about 7lbs) and is perfect. we are doing well and so thankful for an uneventful hb shared with my parents and our 5yo dd. our ds slept through the whole thing and was thrilled to wake up to a new baby brother.

he is nursing like a champ and it is so delightful to have a snuggly newborn instead of a huge belly.
