Birth story someday I'm sure, but for now.

Simon Edwin was born Friday at 2:17 pm
delivered at the hospital by the nurses and my doula and husband.

10 lbs 22 inches long

Now to figure out how to care for 3 kids under 5 and a husband who often acts like the 4th...oh and me too.

Congrats on a wonderful big baby boy Mama!!! My 5th baby (2nd DD) was born fully in the caul. Some cultures consider it a sign that the child is especially blessed and gifted. Enjoy your babymoon and take it easy on yourself
