Worth the Wait!

After being in labor since Tuesday, Lily decided to finish the job tonight. Here is her fabulous midwife, talking her through transition:
It's a BOY (after only two pushes, that is just Wrong, people):
Babies born at home are generally very quiet. Here he is, getting introduced to Mommy and Daddy:
Even though *by the calendar* Lily was two weeks overdue, Baby's true gestational age (by testing) is 39 weeks. I'm so proud of Lily for sticking to her guns and waiting for God to decide when the baby was ready to come:
...getting those first few "words of wisdom" from Daddy, Baby is listening intently:
Baby boy was born on the 4th, the same day of the month as his Big Brother Junior Asparagus. He is 8 lbs. 6 oz. and 21 1/2 inches long.
Speaking of long, it's been a long day, and I am going to bed!
