Just wanted to let everyone know our new little boy is here! He was born here at home at 2:23pm Sunday, October 25 at exactly 38 weeks. He weighed 7 pounds even and was 20 1/4 inches long with a 14+ inch head (I forget how big, exactly). We are doing well! I'll try to write up a birth story soon.



oh, and we finally settled on his name (after a couple days)....Joah Griffin.

Tessa, wife to DH and Mama to DD (3/01) and DS1 (HB-VBAC! 9/06) and DS2 (2nd HB-VBAC 10/25/09)
