hi all,

our girl was born at 4:07 this afternoon, after half a day of meandering contractions and only about an hour of serious ones! she was born into the water, even though we weren't planning to do that, and it was great. my first less-than-10-pound baby!

more later,
*j

Congratulations!!

You gave your daughter the name my dh picked out in case we have a girl, only we'll spell it Una. And I thought he did such a great job in picking out a unique name

I think I've already seen a baby born this month with our boys name too, Eliot.

Oh well, can't wait to hear your birth story!
