Daniel Paul - June 8th, 2011

Wednesday afternoon at 1:13pm Mountain Time we got to see Daniel Paul for the very first time! He's nine pounds and ten ounces and 22 inches long and he's noisy and waves his arms a lot.

Labor started around midnight on Tuesday and we called the midwife about 2am. We did it at home this time and it was so much nicer than at the hospital. The labor was 13 hours but once the birth started it went pretty quick and it was really pretty easy this time. Right after he was born there was a little excitement because I did some bleeding but then it ended. The OB today says I am fine and not to worry about it.

I would write more but it is late and I am seriously needing some sleep. I owe emails to Alice and Charity and a shout out to DT but it will have to wait, okay?

Love to you all and God bless you!



  1. Congratulations! I can't believe you blogged at all. I hope you are getting rest.

  2. Congratulations!!! I've never done home birth. I'm glad it went well for you.

    Gentle hugs to you and Daniel Paul!


  3. Many congratulations! My sister-in-law has had a few home births and they really are much better than at the hospital.

    All the best to you and yours!
