He’s here!

Little Axelrod was born on May 15th, at 7:43pm! He was 9 pounds 2 ounces, and 22.25 inches long. Esther did such an amazing job through the whole thing. We’ll fill in the details later but the short story is that Esther’s water broke at 12:15am on the 15th, latent labor started at 3:30pm, active labor started at 5:20pm, she was “complete” at 6:48pm, and he was born at 7:43pm. Which if you do the math (the midwives did it for us actually) 1st stage labor lasted 3 hours 18 minutes and 2nd stage lasted 55 minutes. Yes, that’s pretty fast. Esther was totally superhuman through the whole thing. And now we’re singing songs and playing games and napping with the product of all our hard work and hopes. We are totally stoked.

More pictures and stories as soon as I figure out how to leak-proof my diaper strategy.
