It’s a Boy!

Danica gave birth at 4:33AM. She was TOTALLY HARDCORE. She labored through the night and when the midwife asked, “do you want me to check if you can push?” She responded, “No; I want to wait and go as long as I can.” Total pushing time: 3-5 minutes.

No name. Weight unknown. We’re going to sleep. Better photos later.

    WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO! I’ve been checking here constantly waiting for this awesome news! You go girl! I can’t wait to hear about how everyone is doing. What a great picture. Congrats on that little boy. Jameson will be thrilled in a few months when his brother can start to play. My older two are only 17 months apart and it’s great fun! A playmate! Rest up everyone and be blessed! And welcome to the world little guy!

    HARD CORE! 3- 5 minutes?! Yea, I’d say that’s pretty awesome. Congratulations on a sweet home birth. I can’t wait to hear the story (but take your time getting it to us: enjoy that precious baby for now).

    @ Liz: she totally does. One baby born the day before her due date (like– 3 hours before, actually) and then one born the day after (like– 4 hours after, actually). Next time, I expect a baby ON the due date exactly at noon. :)

    Oh man… it’s killing me that you’re so far away, D!

    I can’t believe that my brother has brothers – and my sister has sisters….I’m sure between naps there is discussion of my new newphew’s name – isn’t there a 12 hour rule or something??!! Can’t wait to know him and call him by his name!!!
