New Addition

Aurora was born yesterday morning at 7:50. She was 3.6 kg and 52cm-- a good sized baby girl. We used the birthing loft again, and had nothing less than an excellent experience-- again. It is facing budget cuts, and it would be criminal to let anything happen to this wonder addition to the hospital.

Wednesday, Lise went out to Kvitsøy with Julian to visit her parents. She returned around 8 in the evening. At 2am she woke me to say we needed to head to the hospital. About 3am we moved our plan into action, and started preparing to leave for the hospital. We called a friend who spent the night to look after Julian. We arrived at the hospital around 4:30 in the morning. Intense labor started about an hour later, and by 8am, our daughter was in our arms--- with no complications or issues--- a perfect little girl and a perfect birth. We could not be happier. We left the hospital around 1 pm today.
