was born at home on January 25, 2007 at 4:52 AM, after Michele had
endured a rather miserable week-long cold, 3 days of "false
alarms" (contractions would start in the middle of the night, thus
preventing us from sleeping, but stop the next morning), and
4 hours of rather
intense labor. It was a little different from the previous 4, who
all came after a single session of prolonged labor. |

I'll even open my eyes a little bit!
11 days early, she weighed
6 lbs., 9 oz., and was 19" inches long.
They'll never find me in here!
Father and Baby are doing fine!
was a wonderful experience; she was our second home birth, and we plan
to have future children born at home as well. Our midwife, (Laura
Hamilton), Charles, Michele and Liliana were the only people present at
the birth. Michele's mom (Bev Cooke) came over and looked after
the other children during the delivery, and got to hold the baby while
it was still "fresh"! The kids are now spending a couple of days
at Grandma and Grandpa Cooke’s house while we "recover".
