Annabelle Grace was born this morning at 9:56am. She weighs 8lbs 8oz and 21.5in long. She is beautiful! She has my and Abigail's dark hair, but I don't think she looks like Abby, she has a look of her own. I think she is beautiful, but I could be biased

She was born into the water, in her sac at that! I did at all on my own, it was amazing ladies! My labor was 6 hours long, approximately, from the time I noticed any steady contractions around 4am. I feel amazing too, I can't believe how much easier the recovery is this time around. I'll post my birth story and some pictures later, I can't wait to tell you alll about it!

I added a picture of her in my siggy. My midwives also took pictures of the birth and are bringing the CD of them over today during my home visit. I'll share them in the next few days when I get them loaded on the computer!
