It's a Boy!

Announcing the arrival of

Andrew Josiah

Date: Jaunary 13th

Time: 8:50 pm CST

Weight: 8 lbs. 10 oz.

Height: 21.25 in.

Details: not long after Mom sat in the "La Bassine" birthing tub her water broke. Total labor time in the tub was appx. 1.5 hours. Contractions progressed rapidly (and consequestly were strong). The "La Bassine" is very sturdy - so you can really lean on the side without fear of a tidal wave. Once Andrew's head was lifted out of the water he cried a little (so we knew his respiratory system worked) and then he quickly became quiet and calm - even after Dad took him out of the water (so Mom could deliver the placenta).
