So, after torrential rain here in Southern IN and a foot of water in the lower level of our house, baby Elwyn decided to come out.

She was born on 6/6 at 2:12 am at home in the water after a relatively short labor. She weighed 7lb 15 oz and was 21 inches long. Great nurser and so sweet.

I will post the story when it stops raining here and I don't have to worry about more flooding!!


Congrats to all of the other mamas that have had their baby's!!!

*** Pictures of the little one****

I am really slow at writing the birth story, but I will get one posted!!

Congratulations! Welcome to your new baby girl! She weighed the same as both of my boys. Stay dry (we've had a lot of flooding here this year as well)!
