Ctx have been 5 minutes apart for about 2 hours I just called the midwives and they should be here in about an hour. I still think this is really early labor, but they insisted on coming So they will be napping in the living room lol. I just finished making granola bars, yummy!

Hey ladies! Our little son Malachi David has arrived after 35 hours of labor! He was born at home on Monday, October 25th at 8:13 am. He weighs 7 lbs. and is 20.5 inches long He latched onto the breast within 5 minutes of birth and then proceeded to nurse expertly for 45 minutes Last night while we were cosleeping, somehow he latched himself onto the breast and started nursing all by himself, because I woke up to the feel of him nursing and I certainly didn't latch him on! lol He is adorable, with dark hair and super-dark eyes. His facial features resemble my husband more, but he has my olive skin Hubby is pale white hehe. I'll try to get a pic up soon, just wanted to update everyone. Thanks for everyone thinking of me during labor---it is much appreciated
