my sweet new BOY was born yesterday afternoon at home!

we are so thrilled and in love with him.

his name is rowan but we aren't sure of his middle name yet.

it was a pretty quick labor, though not quite as fast as last time. my contractions became regular around 3:30 pm and he was born at 5:29 pm.

he's 9 lbs 1 0z, 22 inches long and he has a bunch of dark hair.



pictures and more details to follow.

Chrissy, lucky mama to Noah (9), Lilah (6), Rowan (3) and Laney (1).

Congratulations! I'm in the June DDC but had to comment since that is one of the names we have picked out! Enjoy your big babe with lots of hair.

Yay!!! Congrats, Chrissy!! I was coming here to check and see if your baby was here yet. So glad for wonderful news!

BTW, I love the name Rowan! DH and I were talking names today and that was one that keeps coming back to me. I haven't got many options if we do have a boy!

Love the pics! He is just gorgeous! And WOW do I remember Noah's gorgeous, big eyes! Look forward to the rest of the story!

Chrissy,

I have been checking on you all month.

Congratulations! He is beautiful! Welcome sweet baby Rowan. I love seeing him in all the woolies.

Noah looks so proud and Lilah does the shy thing so sweetly. You have such cute kids!

Oh, Chrissy, I am so happy for you!

Rowan is positively *angelic*! Gorgeous! But then all your little ones are. And you are the most fabulous nine-month pg lady I've seen.

Too funny!

I am so in awe of mamas like you who can knit! I have zero ability (I guess I'd have to learn first, eh? ). Do you know off hand what pattern you used for the little blue soaker? I just love how perfectly it fits him!

Great job, all around!

I will PM it to you, but only if you promise not to send me anything until you have had a least a few weeks to soak up that newborn goodness!

Congrats Chrissy! He's a cute little chub, isn't he!? Sounds like a nice, fast labor. I'm *so* happy for you that you have your baby in your arms.

You really do make beautiful kids!

hope you are recovering well!
