D + O = BC

Yesterday we had the pleasure of meeting BC for the very first time--live and in person. BC made an entrance at 11:05pm on September 16, 2008. After a long and rigorous labor we were thrilled to introduce ourselves to our new daughter!!!

The yet-to-be-named BC (Baby Coutsoumpos) weighs 7lbs 11oz and is 21in long. Highlights of the birth include: 5 doulas present, Deidre catching the baby, successful birth at home. More details to come...

Enjoy the following pictures of Lady BC.
