Baby Oliver Aedan was born at home on 10/7/09 at 653 am, 7 lbs 15 oz, and 22 inches. We are all healthy, happy and DS#1 (who is almost 3) has been doing great so far. My water broke on 10/6 at 930 p.m. (literally just minutes after I got DS1 to sleep). I was in active labor for about 4.5 hrs. and pushed him out in the water in about 23 mins. Oliver is a great nurser (it took us almost a month to get DS1 to latch on so the ease of nursing this time has been a blessing!). Even though its been just days my body is quickly recovering this time and it feels so nice to not have a boulder in my belly!!! I'll try to figure out how to do the picture thing when I have a chance!
