Beatrice Grace has arrived!

She was born on Friday, April 6th at 6:50p. I began with contractions around 1130p on Thursday night,and labored at home until about noon on Friday, and headed to the Birthing Suites to deliver.

What an incredibly powerful experience--I was lucky to have my husband, my twin sister and my mom there for me as support, plus the awesome midwife and nurse. Beatrice was 7lbs. 2 ozs and 20 inches of pure magic.

We are home now, getting situated and trying to get this breast feeding thing down. oy.

some pictures:

finally at home in the sun with abuelita

Wow, what beautiful baby! Sounds like a lovely birth too - I plan to do most of my labouring at home too even though I am not planning to deliver at home.
