Baby boy

Getting weighed. 7 lbs 9 oz 19 1/2 inches long.

Israel Benedict Vigneau was born today 10-10- 2009 at 5:55 am at home... in our kitchen. :o)
As Mike mentioned contractions started at 1 am. I woke Mike up at 2 am, midwife arrived at 3 :30. Midwife broke my water at 5:15 and he was born shortly after. The at home labor was fabulous!! We had the lights dim, candles lit and relaxing music playing. Keira slept through the whole thing.
ohhh and the winner of the date prediction is me... My guess was 10/10. :o) The winner of the weight prediction was Emily Ruiz.
He was born 4 days early- exactly like Keira. Labor time was 5 hours pretty similar to Keira was well.
Otherwise we are all fine.. I tore a bit so I am sore of course but that is par for the course I guess. Now I am enjoying my lunch sans heartburn or nausea. Thank God!!! :o)
