Happy Birthday!!

Our family is pleased to announce the early arrival of our newest member:

Timothy Mitchell Inkster was born yesterday, April 15th at 8:35am. 

Active labour started at about four in the morning.  Timothy was born at home with the assistance of midwives.  We were blessed with another peaceful waterbirth.  All three of Timothy's siblings were present, along with Ben's mom, my mom, my sister, and (of course) Ben.

Timothy arrived 12 days before his due date.  He weighed 8lb. 8oz. and was 20 1/2 in. long at birth.  (I am glad he didn't wait another two weeks!). He nurses like a champ and is quite calm and content.

I will share pictures soon!
