A Prawn Is Born!

Wren Ivy Rose, born 10:29am by cesarean section after heroic Rockmama labour endeavors failed to convince The Prawn that there was life outside the womb. The big-eyed, cooing bundle weighed in at 8lbs 10.5oz. Mother and baby both doing wonderfully.

Pictures to follow once Daddio here has regained the ability to see in straight lines. Need. Sleep.

Congratulations rockmama and family! Love the name. Hopefully, when things settle down, you'll be glad in the long run not to have to push out an almost 9 pounder! You did good!

Congratulations everyone, and hell, what a big ol' Prawn! I'm glad to hear mother and baby are doing well post-birth.

I'm looking forward to pictures and a birth story (weirdo that I am).

So she's really not a prawn then? This little creature has emerged at long last more of a baby than a crustacean? Well congratulations all the same!
I am so very proud of you all!
