Announcing...

A baby boy, born at home in the water this afternoon! We forgot to look at the clock when he was born, so we are guessing 2:33 pm. He'll be named Dio, after Eric's grandfather. Still working on a middle name. More later, but here are a few pictures:

I am so happy for you (even though I don't even really know you, but the "bond" is still there right?! :)) You are awesome :) I can't wait to read about your birth story (If you decide to post it that is). (P.S. I am 38 pages into your dissertation and so far I am enjoying it very much!!)
