We had a baby December 28, 2012

10 days late…born on Christmas Eve after a whirlwind labor (nothing like an ultrasound that morning estimating the baby at 11 lbs. 8 oz. to strike a bit of fear in the laboring mom’s heart…)

After 10 minutes of pushing, little C shot into the world, making her appearance at 11:45 am (we arrived at the birth center to wait in the parking lot at 10 am, doula met us at 10:20, midwife made it at 10:45 to let us in…so whirlwind indeed).

9 lbs. 12 oz. / 21.5 inches long and perfect in every way!

Christmas morning:




Day 2 (including getting weighed by the midwife during the home visit):




Day 4:
