Hey everyone, my as yet unnamed boy was born yesterday at 11:34 AM in the fishy pool in his sister's room. My 2 year old (well, she'll be 2 tomorrow) witnessed the whole thing and was fabulous. Daddy got to catch and I cut the cord myself after the placenta delivered.

After the marathon of labour that was my daughter's birth 2 years ago, this 7 hours of labour and 41 minutes of pushing was almost a relief (although it still hurt like hell---ooohhh back labour)

Anyways, he weighs 9lbs 11 oz, was 52cm long with a 37.5 cm head!!! I couldn't believe it, because if you recall seeing my pregnancy pictures, I was not that big, only measuring 35cm at the end and having only gained 15lbs.

The same photographer who did our maternity shoot took 1200 pictures of the birth. They are amazing and hopefully when I get more organized I will share a few.

DD april 4/06, DS April 2/08. Someone new in fall '12.
