Another False.... Oh Wait, This Was For Real!

Howdy, everyone! We are thrilled to announce that after WEEKS of false alarms, our baby did indeed arrive this morning. And it's a....


The name is Giles Edward, and he is an adorable little chublet with lots of dark hair. Pictures to come soon!

Here are the birth stats:

Labor start time: 2:48 a.m. on Sunday, February 12, 2012 (2/12/12 - notice the awesome date!)
Labor end time: 9:33 a.m.
Labor time: 6:45 (as opposed to 18:07 and 7:11 for previous births)

Apgars: 9 and 10
Weight: 9 lbs. 9 oz. (Yes, you read that right! It's the year for HG mums to have big babies!)

Birth was a home waterbirth, and baby was caught by his daddy. 

Stay tuned this week for a painfully long and overly detailed birth story that will be filled with lots and lots of TMI and other fun stuff!

In the meantime.... have a great week, everyone!

Oh, and an extremely amazing postscript! Wait till you hear this one....

The woman who correctly guessed what the gender and birthdate of our last baby would be..... is the very same woman who guessed what the gender and birthdate of this baby would be. Is that amazing, or what? Fran, you are amazing! (And a congratulations to our runner-up Kristina!!)

Love to all!
