Its a boy!

Our new son was born on September 5th at 2:24am at home in the water! He is so tiny! Only 6lb 7oz, 18 inches long. His name is Luca Jasper Perreca. He is an eaten, poopin' champ! HA HA!! We are all doing well. I feel great, just tired from having a baby in the night. The kids love him and like to look at him and hold him. My friend Kara was here for the birth, both for moral support and to help with the kids if we needed it. She took a bunch of pictures and i will post them later when I get them. The kids never even woke up! I was worried I would wake them up, but all my support people said I wasn't that loud. Also here was my midwife Cheryl and her assistant Melanie. They were great!

Something funny I wanted to write down. Dominic woke up at 5:30am and saw the lights on downstairs and came down. I told him I had a surprise and showed him the baby. Kara was holding the baby at the time. He kind of looked at him, looked around the room and picked up his new baseball glove. He said, Kara, I got a new glove! 3 year olds! Really impressed by that baby huh?! LOL! When my mom talked to him on the phone she asked if he had a new baby, he said, Yes, and KARA is here!
