Reid Solomon Armstrong was born at 5:02 this morning in a beautiful waterbirth...about 6 hours of active labor which is my fastest time so far. Woohoo!!!! Intense and lots of work but, am so very proud of myself. He's 8lbs 14oz and 21 inches long with a beautiful 13.5 inch head that never molded at all...came right out all hard and round. Whew! He's stunning and so happy and snuggly. I am so relieved and proud to have conquered birth again and really ready to live up the babymoon! My husband just returned from the store with a couple of lobsters, a bundle of tulips and a little zeroeth birthday cake to celebrate. I am so getting spoiled!!!!

Here's a link to my blog entry with photos and little details in case you want to see what he looks like.
