baby boy

Matthew Stephen - born yesterday (March 24th) at 8:46 a.m. 8lb 2oz 19 inches Cutest ever -- pictures later. :)

The actual birth was great, Matthew's in great shape.  Unfortunately the placenta didn't want to detach so I couldn't avoid the hospital, but I was really pleased with how the midwife handled everything and, while it was a tad traumatic to leave my hour-old son home with my mom while I went under general anesthesia, it's all worked out.

I need to type up the birth story before I forget it all, but it was amazing laboring and doing everything at home, with only supportive loving people around.

*does the dance of joy*

Congratulations and jubilations! And even if you did need the hospital, at least it was for something minor and not for long - so yay for that!

*hugs*
