Last night at 8:53 my sweet baby boy made his arrival into the world.
Nathan Charles was exactly 8 pounds and 203/4 inches long.

Here are a couple pictures from last night. Later I'll post some better ones from today.

Here I am talking to my dad. Nathan was maybe a half hour old here.

Here he is getting checked over by our midwife. We had a home birth. (it's kind of blurry, but in the upper left you can see Sundae sitting with me.)

Thank you for all your lovely comments.

Nathan is doing great! I couldn't have asked for a better baby. He saw his pediatrician on Wednesday and the doctor was impressed with how good he looked for being less than 24 hours old. He said Nathan is the picture of health! We go back today for a second check-up.

For those of you who asked about the home birth- it was amazing! Child birth was of corse the hardest thing I've ever done, but being at home made it more enjoyable and comfortable.

My water broke at 8 Tuesday morning, but my contractions didn't really kick in until around noon. I sat in a chair most of the day, hugging my pillow. Justin was the best, he was such a great comfort to me. As the day got later and the contractions got stronger I got in a warm tub of water which helped me relax some. I went from there to the my bed where I pushed for about 45 minutes.

Here are a couple more pictures of my baby boy-
