Happy belated Birthday! Updated with pictures

Just wanted to write a quick post to update everyone that our son, Samuel, was born on April 26th at just before 10 am!  He weighed 7lbs 12 oz and is 21 inches long, and for those keeping stats, a 13.75 in head circumference, making him our little moonhead according to the midwives :)  Labor was long and intense but he was born at home and we are both doing really well 2 days out. I hope to give a more in depth labor story for those interested later!

Thank you all for your prayers and as Rebecca kept reminding me, Im just glad it took less time to get him out than it took getting him in there!

Picture coming soon!

Here’s a picture!
