Yep, I'm so excited!

This morning, at 6:02am, after being in labor and awake since Friday night at 11:30pm, our baby boy was born in the water, at home.

He was 8lbs 14 oz! That's big for me! A whole pound heavier than DS. We are doing well and DS seems to love his baby brother. No name yet, but stay tuned. I can't wait to post my birth story and pictures, probably in a couple of days.

Here's to all of you mamas still waiting!

----------------------------------------------------------------------
We are doing well over here, just hanging at home, we have over a foot of snow at our house! Unusual for this area. It makes for a warm and cozy babymoon.

His name is Ethan Evan and he is just precious. Breastfeeding is going well now and I'm just in love.

I wrote my birth story, you can read that here.

And here are some pics of labor and baby!

                                       DS 7 ~ DS 3
