Welcome Earthside! The Birth of Peregrin Jameson

I'd like to introduce the newest member of our clan!
Peregrin Jameson
Born Feb. 2nd, 2009
Weight: 8lbs 10 oz
Length: 21 inches
Head: 14 1/2 inches

It was a wonderful and quick birth. I woke up with a contraction at 2:40am, I called Jim at work at 3:15am right after my water broke, and I was holding him in my arms at 4:15am. It was a water birth, in our tub at home, and this time Jim got to catch him himself! Peregrin's shoulder was stuck on his way out, so I changed position and asked Jim to come over and help catch him while I pushed.

We are absolutely in love with our little darling, and I will probably be adding in a more complete birth story later on. I've always written them right away, but I just don't feel like sitting down and doing that just yet.

I spent our first week together doing nothing but relaxing and recuperating with Peregrin while Jim was here and did absolutely everything else. He was amazing, and I really couldn't have asked for more. I feel great, Peregrin is doing wonderfully, and generally, there's a whole lot of love and contentedness in our house. He is getting a ton of love from his three big brothers, and his big sister.
