Baby makes three

I am very happy to announce the blessed birth of Michelle and Jeff Chapin's daughter, baby Sunny Josephine!

Last night, literally seconds after I posted about them leaving to head to Grant for some tests to I believe confirm preeclampsia (pregnancy induced hypertension) I got a message on facebook from Jeff saying that as they were headed out they noticed that there was a pattern to Michelle's contractions and that they thought she was going into labor! horray! So after speaking with Kathy (midwife) and Amy (apprentice midwife/doula) they were given the greenlight to birth at home as long as there were no further complications with her blood pressure while in labor. While at Nathan Smart's surprise 30th birthday party last night I got a call from Amy saying, "Are you sitting down?!" Bouncing baby girl was born in the pool and breech! 6 lbs of love!

I am so happy for those two crazy kids!!
