39 weeks, 5 days.... Plus 5 days: Baby is Here!

I'm sorry to have been so remiss! Baby arrived Tuesday morning at 6:47 a.m. following a lightning-fast labor (~7 hours) that started with my water breaking at 11:36 p.m. on Monday night. Against all expectations baby was a BOY whom we have named Glenn, and whose feeding and care are the reasons that my blogs have been ignored! I have about a 5-page birth story manuscript brewing in my head (I have so much to write about!!), so it'll probably be a while before I get that published - hopefully sometime next week before DH goes back to work. Anyhow, I just wanted to get that announcement out - I'll write more later, hopefully! Love to all!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS! SO excited for you! Can't wait to hear the whole story! :)

  2. Congratulations! I am so happy for you. I have been following your blog since before the doula training. I am a fellow home birther, expecting #5 in January. I really enjoy your blog. Praying for many blessings for your family!

  3. Congratulations on the arrival of your baby boy! I hope that the HG hell has resolved itself with little lasting effects.

  4. Congratulations! I am so happy for your family! I am due October 15th. HUGS!

  6. Hello.

    Congratulations again! It was really nice to meet Glenn the other day. Just reading through old entries. What does DH mean? I will send an email separately.

    Best Wishes,
