YEAH!!!


She was born one hour and forty five minutes after my midwife broke my water at 1:30 today. Labor was short, but so intense. And I got my homebirth! My midwifes rock.

I can't believe I actually have my girl tonight.

She's beautiful, worth the wait and I'm in love.

Looks like all the June babies are here!

update...
if you click on the baba boy in my siggy, there's two Fiona pictures.

Yay!!! Can't wait to see some baby pictures! (Though your very brief story begs the question... do you (or your butt) wish you'd skipped the castor oil and gone straight to breaking your water? )

Anyway, congrats!!:
