<p>Squirt is here and has a new name!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Rachel Elizabeth</p>
<p>7 lb 6 oz</p>
<p>20 3/4 inches long</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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</p>
