Silas Bryant-Kunz was born at 11:04 am on Friday March 16th after 32 hours of labor. He weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was 20 inches in length.
Well we didn't quite end up with the homebirth we wanted, but 99% of it did take place at home, so we're okay... anyway, during the last hour of labor our midwife discovered a problem - a not so uncommon problem - but nonetheless Mom had to be transported for the safety of the baby... it ended up being the right thing to do.
We had an amazing team: Peggy, Anna, Patty, and Louisa, we owe you so much... thank you just isn't enough... and props to the doc's and nurses at the hospital as well.
Plus we want to thank Uncle Patrick, Shannon, Jessica and William, Katya, Jerry, Erika and Henry, and all our neighbors who have been so supportive with all the good food and energy.
So now we're just getting adjusted to being parents, being a family. More to come soon, including details of the labor and birth, and more pictures of our beautiful child. Stay tuned...
