Dylan Jay was born in the caul* at home, in his mama's bed, on Wednesday, March 19th at 11:34am. After a few false starts in the previous 1 1/2 weeks, he was born relatively swiftly after just 2 or so hours of hard labor and 45 minutes of pushing (woo-hoo). He weighed in at 8 lbs 8 oz, 21" long. He was born looking absolutely perfect, just like his big sister. She was not in the room the moment he was born, but came running in seconds after to see him. She was utterly delighted and seems (mostly) very happy to have a little brother. Mama, papa, big sis, and baby brother are all doing well.
