3/24 at 9:27am, 10 lbs 8 oz, 21.5" long.

 

I woke up at 5:00am, by 5:30 I decided to start timing the contractions which were pretty consistent around 2-3 minutes apart.  Decided to take a shower since I had waves on the 19th that peetered out to nothing.  They kept coming.  Called my mom to get her headed our way/to the birth center.  Called my mil to get her to watch our dd.  We left the house at 7:20 to head to the birth center (laboring in the car is not something I would want to do again!), arrived a little after 8, labored in the water (a fantastic experience), had to stand up to birth his shoulders.  All in all an amazing experience, all kind of happened so very fast, wouldn't have traded my amazing birth team for nothing, and so pleased my mother could be there for the birth of both her grandchildren.

 

Big sister could hardly wait to get her hands on him!
