to announce my baby boy!!!!!

Baby Powell #3 (will remain nameless for who knows how long was born at 8:19 (or was it :09?) this morning 12ish hours after water breaking and a little less than 6 hours after contractions starting. I don't have the energy to write the whole story out right now but suffice to say I almost thought we'd be transferring to the hospital. I'm exhausted and surprised that my afterpains are not as bad (at all) as they were last time. Dh is out cold, the kids are crazy about their little brother so I have them watching a movie, and I'm crawling back into bed.
Monique
oh yeah, 8lbs 9 oz, 14 1/2 inch head, 20 1/2 inches long . Born one day short of 39wks.
no tearing, a bit of abraded tissue but it barely stings at all.
