Yesterday morning at 7:30 it was confirmed that my water was leaking and I was having little contractions.
At 8:11 this morning Malachi Lucius Ritz was born, 7 lbs 12 ounces, 20 inches long at 40 weeks 3 days. I had one tear that could have gone either way, stitches or not, so I chose not to.
I'll write a birth story later

I don't want to post any spoilers before she writes her birth story, but I do want to say two things:

She is amazing. Absolutely stunning. She knew exactly what to do, followed her body 100%. She is ferociously strong, she was like the archetypal birthing princess, like an Amazon woman who has done this a million times. I've never seen anything like it. She never said "It's too much pain", she said "It's so big" (meaning the feelings, the sensations, not the actual baby).

And secondly... I got to drive home with birth on my hands :
