At 10:45pm, Jude was peacefully birthed into his Papaa's hands. It was a long labor day but perfect and joyful.

I will write more tomorrow!

Edit:

Wow! What a long day for us! Contractions started at 5am and didn't really pick up until around 7pm. But once they did, it was intense and fast. It was a beautiful day here so we walked outside, ate wonderful food and just waited for the moment to arrive. When my contractions started coming one on top of another, I got in the birth pool for relief and found that I was almost ready to push. I ended up getting out after about an hour and birthed him on land. Surprisingly, it was much more difficult and painful than my last birth and I was shocked at the pure power that my body put out. I have a small but uncomfortable labial tear but am otherwise fine. Jude is nursing well and his brother and sister (especially his sister) can't seem to get enough of him. We are so happy and blessed!!

Congratulations!  Love the name, Jude is what our two year old has been calling Julius.  She can't always say his name so Jude it has become!  Enjoy your babymoon.
