Well, what do you know! It's a boy!

Well, I was right -- it was labour. And as of 6:30 this morning, I'm the proud mother of a new baby boy, Simon Philip. 7 pounds, 7 ounces, born in the waterbirth tub, and to all appearances at present, healthy and flourishing. The labour was intense, but short -- active stage was only 3 hours total. And right now, in spite of not having been able to sleep for some reason (in spite of having lots of opportunity to do so -- Hubby and the baby are both having a nap right now), I'm feeling pretty good. Certainly much better than I did after having Nicholas, anyway!

Thanks to all of you who kept us in your thoughts and prayers. "Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures for ever." (Ps. 107:1)
