Matteo Keith was born at home this morning (37w5d) at 1:47 am after a ridiculously easy and peaceful labour and birth. He weighed 9lbs 5oz and is 21.5" long.

He was born only 5 hours after my water spontaneously broke, 4 hours after labour started, 1 hour after hard labour started and 10 minutes after I started pushing. It was such an easy birth! I can't believe how simple it was! I sure don't feel like I just gave birth.

Roman (big brother) is so excited and in a great mood. He's already sharing toys with Teo

Mama to DS R (June/06), DD K (September/07), DS M (October/08), DD R (June/09)... waiting for #5 in late 2013!!
