A precious baby girl, born unassisted (Unplanned! We didn't make it to the birth center!) this morning, at exactly 42 weeks.

Lydia Corinne
8 # 5 oz
22"
7:39 AM (ish)
Blissfully born in my front hallway after a fast and furious wild ride of a labor... birth story to come! I feel fabulous, and Lydia is more than wonderful.

What a joy! Your birth story was a wonderful read - what a special memory for you and your husband to have together.

Congratulations on your beautiful girl!
