Sean Thomas arrived this morning at 3:30am - quick labour, woke up at 11pm to contractions, woke up husband and got the aunt/uncles in place to tend the older trio - left for the hospital at 1am, had the babe at 3:30am and now home by 5:45am - and no one woke up! Drug and intervention free except for three little stitches as the head 'popped' (which terrified me!) ... but exhausted.

The delivery went well (what quick one doesn't!) - he is 7lbs. 13oz., 52 cm long with a 36 cm head (will have to translate all that later!). Unlike my other babes, he has a ton of black hair - my others are so fair!

I can't believe how small newborns are - we are happy & healthy.

I have been thinking about you, we were due around the same time. Our babies are a similar size and mine also was a dark haired surprise.
Happy babymoon, hope you get lots of rest

Congratulations!

Wow! That was one quick labor. So your kids went to sleep & woke up to a new sibling.
