He's Here!

December 31 2009 at 5:58 pm we welcomed our sweet little Gregory Mark into our home. He was proudly named after my Dad Gregory, and Steven's Dad, Mark. Thankfully labor was quick (just under 2 hours) and he arrived without any complications.We were able to have him in the comfort of our own home with a Midwife and Doula and it could not have been more wonderful. Having a homebirth was an amazing experience and we were thrilled for the opportunity. Gregory was eleven days early, much to my delight. Remember, Calvin was 10lbs 10oz. two days early. So I was praying, literally, that Gregory would be born early (a safe early) and smaller than our last babies. Jaclynn was also eleven days early and was still 8lbs 12 oz. so we weren't sure what to expect. He was born 8lbs. 5oz. and 20 1/2 inches long. Just the right size! We are so thankful for our newest blessing. Here are a few photos of his first week. Enjoy!
