Here's the short story--she's sleeping and I should be resting too, so a longer birth story will have to wait.

She was born at home 6 days after her due date, on May 4th at 11:26 pm. After days of early labor contractions, 5.5 hours of active labor and 5 minutes of pushing, DH got to catch Mira Joy. He's very proud that he did not drop her. She was about 21 inches and 7 lbs 10 oz.

Best of luck to those of you still waiting. I really was thinking I'd still be with you this week!
