Eira Barbara Thorveig H. was born at home at 10:50 this morning after my water broke at 3:20AM. She weighs 6lbs 11oz (same as one sibling, 1 oz off from the other), and is 20.5" long. We're both doing well! More later.

DS born 6/03, DD1 born 9/06, DD2 born 10/10, DD3 born 4/14.

Congratulations! Is Eira pronounced "Ay-ra" or "Eye-ra"? Looking forward to your birth story...

Birth story probably tomorrow. She's nursing well, and pooped all over me and all that fun stuff.

Eira is pronounced Ay-ra.

She's SO squishy & perfect!! I can't wait to have one!

The Eira I knew was pronounced like Erin, but with an "uh" at the end rather than the "n." Love that name.

Good job ocelotmom! She's beautiful!

Congratulations! I love the pictures of your daughter holding her.

My husband isn't home so I shared them with my son. I asked if he was going to hold our baby when he comes and he said no, I am going to carry him. We'll see.

Hope you are doing well and enjoying your new baby! I can't wait to hear the whole story when you feel up to it.
