I am Sonja's husband writing on her behalf. On Tuesday, April 1st, we had our new baby girl. She is Eleanor Fiona and she was born at 9:36pm. She was brute, at 10 lbs., 1 oz. and 22 inches in length. The birth was (relatively) quick and both mother and child are doing well. I was able to catch her in the birth pool and our other daughter was able to help me cut the cord.

Woohoo!
CONGRATULATIONS on your big bouncing baby!

Life with a toddler: it's not so much the volume, it's the pitch!

Wheee! The first April baby of the April DDC!

I wonder if mama believed the weight, or thought someone was April Fooling her? ;-)
