Two Healthy Girls!

More details when I've had time to sleep. In the meantime, the baby's on the outside, weighing in a 9lbs. 4oz. Wifey is happy and healthy, despite 14 hours of vbac labor and then a c-section. See aforementioned size of baby, note that most of the 9lbs resides in the baby's noggin, and remind baby that a sideways & twisted exit is ill-advised. Baby's off-center cone noggin with deep circular dent near the soft spot tells the whole story. Most importantly:

Baby is healthy, beautiful and calm.
Daddies are absolutely thrilled.

Another successful surrogacy that will never make headlines.

Aww! It made headlines in my world! I'm so happy for the daddies, for you, and for Wifey! What a wonderful thing to do and 14 hrs of vbac labor and then a c-section! Man, she's a freakin' champ in my book!

Wifey is definitely a champ. Please tell her I'm sending healing vibes her way...I know how wiped out she's feeling. Those whopper babies are rough but oh so worth it in the end.

A little girl to be spoiled rotten by the daddies. The world had better watch out. ;o)

Congrats to all! Glad the baby is ok (that's almost as big as my youngest! Thankfully his wasn't all in the head. LOL)

And Wifey sounds like a trooper, yay her for doing such a wonderful thing!!!

Congratulations to all! Way to go! I had a similar birth story to tell and I don't envy your wife the recovery, but she has you and Little Man to take good care of her. Thanks for the good news!

Congrats to the Daddies and Whoopy to Wifey to be getting back her body back. What a long labor for a 2nd time around. So glad to hear all is well also. I can't even imagine going thru all that for someone else ... bless you Wifey!

Oh thank GOODNESS it's finally over! :-) Sorry to hear about the c-section, though, I know she was hoping to avoid that.

She gets her sticker now, right?
