And the Next Day…

Autumn was born!

IMG_0192After having a few episodes of mild prodromal labor in the past week, labor kicked in full force on Friday evening around 9 pm.

DSCF9570James called the midwife shortly after the second contraction and I began to walk laps around the living room and kitchen while having contractions every 3-5 minutes.

DSCF9578I began pushing at 9:28 pm.  The midwife arrived about 10 minutes later, and the baby arrived 10 minutes after the midwife – a surprise to us all!

IMG_0198Autumn Elizabeth was born at 9:48 pm on October 16th.  She was born with her hand up on her cheek and her cord serving as a necklace.  She weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20-3/4 inches long.

DSCF9577Mama, Papa, and baby are doing very well.  And she has three very proud older siblings!
