Getting tucked in by daddy on his first night earthside...


Eli arrived on July 2, 2011 at 8:09 am, at home and in the birth pool, after less than 10 hours of labor (including 14 minutes of pushing). It happened so much faster than I thought it would, and I am incredibly amazed and thankful to have had such a perfect, peaceful birth for my very first babe.


7 lbs, 10 oz

20 inches


Birth story to come!  My tailbone aches too much to sit at the computer much longer. :P

He's a darling!! And congrats on having such an enjoyable birth.

If your tailbone continues to hurt after a few days, it may be dislocated-that happened to me during the birth of my DD (she came down quickly like it sounds like your DS did)and it took me a bit of time to figure it out, LOL. Super easy for the chiro to fix though.
