And here we are

Born at 7:13 am May 3rd, after less than 3 hours of active labour (there's a pretty involved story: just wait for it).  Our homebirth became a hospital birth for cause, hence the story, but all went very well.  17 hours shy of 37 weeks in the belly, and a healthy 6lb 4oz at birth.

Scarlet Elizabeth Ruth, heretofore known as...


Scarlet - Two days old
