I guess technically now it was "yesterday" that he was born!

Woke up at 5:43am, water broken, within 10 minutes contractions begun. 3 minutes apart, lasting 1 minute. Got pretty intense within 15 minutes. 8:42am Tyler Andrew was born at home in the water. 3 hour labor, 1 hour shorter than his brother, but he baked 2.5 weeks longer and weighed a full 2lbs more (8lbs 9oz) and is almost 2 full inches longer (22.5in)!

Yay! Congratulations! I have been wondering who was in that belly of yours. So great that you had such an efficient labour and birth. I hope you are breastfeeding well and getting some good nourishment.
