Reid was born at 5:30 pm, which was great. The only people we called were the neighbours (DH's brother and wife) because they were so close and had babysat the kids for us, and my parents who had the kids when Reid was born and they knew I was in labor. Other than that, we didn't phone anyone until the next day at noon. It was great. We used the excuse that we hadn't picked a name yet so we didn't want to call people until we had. And we took a LONG time deciding!!!! But I liked it that way. There is something special to me about having that first half day or even a few hours to just be by yourselves and not tell anyone.
