Henry Conner came into the world on Friday, October 9th 2009. He was 8 lbs. 8 oz. and 21.5 inches. He has a full head of hair. We had a smooth home birth with an easy labor but a long time pushing since he had both elbows up and out.

Henry is a wonderful baby and very calm. He is eating well and up to 9lbs 14 oz at 3 weeks old. He has been sleeping for one five hour chunk at night and that is DIVINE! I've been doing some serious babymooning and bonding with him just staying in bed for a week and then staying home the rest of October. I also had my placenta encapsulated and I think taking that really helped with recovery, milk supply and my own hormones and emotions.

His older sister and brother adore him and I just can't stop kissing his little cheeks! It is just dreamy to have a newborn baby in the house again.

Christy-SAHM to my elf princess(4/06) and my little man (12/07). Married to the love of my life and expecting our pumpkin baby boy 10/09! :

So happy for you. Those interesting presentations do add a bit of time and recovery (my Oliver was face up with his hand and elbow in front of his face). Enjoy your baby.

Congrats! Both elbows out huh? Better teach him some manners, quick : )
Joking aside, that sounds painful! Good job pushing him out like that, mama! Post some pics already!
