Our Almost-Christmas Miracle

Santa was too busy on Christmas, so sent the stork instead! The stork apparently doesn't do overnight shipping, so Elliott Casper arrived yesterday, born naturally in the water December 26th, at 7:28 am. 8 lbs even, 22 in long, and just perfect!



We've been home since about 1pm yesterday, and everyone's doing great (but Mom & Dad are tired!) Birth story forthcoming. We are crazy-blessed.

i'm impressed you were 'allowed' to have a waterbirth, i'm assuming in a hospital? or did you go to a birth center?
