I PROMISE that I tried and tried to post an update last night once things started moving, but JMs would not cooperate with me at ALL. I couldn't make a single post.

But...Amelia arrived at 7:04 a.m. this morning - a perfect water birth at home. I could not have PLANNED a more perfect birth, you guys...I labored through the night while Rachael slept, and she woke up five minutes before her sister arrived this morning. She came downstairs just in time to see Amelia's arrival...and she's so in love with her new sister already.

My girl is 9 lbs, 6 ozs and 19" long, and well, just perfect. Definitely worth the wait.

I'll update with more pictures and HOPEFULLY a middle name later this evening!

That is SO awesome. Last night when I was responding to your post I had a really strong feeling that your birth would be very soon, but I didn't want to say that and have you end up going another week! I'm so thrilled that you got the birth you wanted and that the timing worked out great for the new big sister ,too! She's absolutely beautiful. Congratulations, Mom!

Thanks, ladies! Ten days later and the birth story STILL isn't finished...but it's close. It's a three page Word document already, I suppose I should wrap it up.

Just realized that I never updated with her full name - we finally decided after two days. It's Amelia Katherine Joy C.
