It's a BOY: Welcome Owen Wyatt Clark!

double click images to see larger!
Looking pretty good for pulling an all nighter. 8:30 AM March 1st! It took 24 hours from start to finish, including the "starter" contractions at the beginning. These are our CNM's Certified Nurse-Midwives (L-R) Dena, Mary Ann and Michele (student)
baby Owen and Daddy
baby Owen with a full head of DARK hair!! He loves his hands
Kaibee and her new blanket (thanks Phyllis)-- it's the colors of our downstairs, actually. Kaibee has done marvelous! She's a champ. Slept through my crazy noises all night...

We had a boy at 4AM March 1st. I'm exhausted! It was fun! I had a great team here helping me get this baby delivered. 22 hours of contractions start to finish and 2 hours of pushing.

21 inches

Great birth story coming....

I am so happy for you! And excited to hear that it apparently went well. You crack me up! "It was fun!" Oh, you!

Owen is a lucky, lucky boy to be born to such loving and wonderful parents. I LOVE birth stories and eagerly await to hear all the details (and, I dunno...see pictures? If you want to!)

Oh, I'm so proud of you. And so happy for you. What a wonderful adventure you've just started!

Much love!
xoxo MJ

Owen is so precious! I loved reading all of your blog entries about the pregnancy, birthing process, and the fun moments after little Owen was introduced to the world. I will definately be taking down all of your notes for later in life. Its so refreshing to hear about parents who will go to the end of the world to make sure their baby is happy and healthy.

SO SO happy for the three of you!

Love, Jasmine and Casey
