Re: Unplanned, unassisted birth of Exton in the parking lot.

That's a great story! I'm glad you got the natural birth you wanted, even if it was a little crazier than you had planned! I was already in the hospital but I had the same experience at the end...

Re: Birthmarks

DS had the same on his eyelid and neck. So far I've only noticed it on DD's right eyelid. But she has tons of hair covering the back of her neck :) so I haven't checked there.
