Last night my wife gave birth to our first child. Turns out that he is a boy. Charles. He is healthy and well, and weighed in at seven pounds, two ounces. Mom is also healthy, after labouring for 18hrs. We did a home water birth with the assistance of a few midwives, a friend, and my mother.
I have never felt anything like the way I feel now. I have never felt happier. I have never felt more at peace. I have never felt more in love. It’s indescribable.
