Squirt is here and has a new name!

 

Rachel Elizabeth

7 lb 6 oz

20 3/4 inches long

 

Born at the birth center into the water after 12 1/2 hours of active labor.  We both needed a little bit of oxygen afterward; me more than her.  But everything is going well now, and she LOVES to nurse.

 

Pictures and birth story to follow.  I was going to upload photos now, but we can't find any of the cameras we used...lol
