Introducing "Tummy Baby"

"Tummy Baby" Hilton was born at home (our second planned home birth) this morning at 3:26 a.m. He weighs 8 pounds 11 ounces, is 21 inches long, and has one big noggin! No wonder I was huge this time around!!! The birth was a lot of hard work but we are all doing great. Our Chunky Monkey is a very sleepy baby but nursing well. Carter and Tay were excited to meet their new brother when they woke up this morning. We are grateful to have 3 happy and healthy kids!






p.s. No name yet.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! He is beautiful and perfect and I can't believe you had such a big baby! ;) When the opportunity arrises I'd love to hear how it all went! Corinne- your pregnancy is over, I know that's worth celebrating about! And your prize is this handsome little addition to your family. What a sweet baby...

Jaimee said...

Hooray!! Good luck deciding on a name - that's the hardest part for us. Newborns are so great. I bet Carter is thrilled to have another boy in the family.

Leslie said...

YAY!!! He looks like a Hilton, that's for sure! So glad he is here and everyone is safe. Corinne, you are amazing for having your home birth and being a birthing champion! I am sure Drew was a huge support to you and the kids are so excited! Love you all and can't wait to meet him!

Jody said...

Congratulations sweet girl! What a cutie "chunky monkey" he is. I think he's looking a little like Tay right now, but you never know. Get some rest. I can't wait to come and see you.
Love Mom

Melissa H said...

I agree with your mom, Corinne, he looks a lot like Tay to me too! Congratulations, now you can rest assured all the extra weight wasn't just you--he was doing his part obviously. :)

We can't wait to meet him this summer, if you can make it!

Hooray! I was thinking about you this morning wondering if you were doing to have your baby today... the funny thing is that at the time I was thinking that, he was already born :-) Congrats and everything. He's beautiful. I love you all!

Hannah said...

Hooray! I've been checking your blog often to see when baby hilton would arrive! And now he's here. I can't wait for the story, the name, and more pictures. :) Congratulations!

Hannah said...

Oh, Sam wants me to say that he felt like a moron for calling Drew yesterday. He realized after the fact that you "might" be having a baby...looks like he was probably right!

Lisa O said...

Oh, Corinne, he's beautiful! I kinda like chunky monkey for a name. It has a nice ring. I'm happy to hear that you and baby are both doing well. Congratulations.
