    Linus Roman has arrived!

    He arrived this morning at 10:10am. 7 pounds, 1 ounce. 20 inches long.

    I had a super-fast home birth. First contractions woke me up around 3:15 am... I labored pretty steady, but not stressed for several hours. Things picked up around 8:30... 9:30 I told the midwife and doula to come. All of a sudden I had to push and he was out within 4 contractions from when I started pushing. My doula had walked in the door about 7 minutes earlier and caught him and I delivered standing in my living room! Good thing it was a planned homebirth - I would have never made it to the hospital and he would have been born in the car!

    We are both doing really well and big sister Sylvia is absolutely over-the-moon in love with him!
