Daughter number four was born at home on Monday April 30, 2007 at our house on 68 East Pomfret Street. She has lots of dark hair, very much like her sister Rebekah had! She was 7 pounds, 14 onces, 19 1/2 inches long and born at 6:42 in the morning. That was about 6 days early which is pretty normal for Lisa! Lisa's water broke around mid-night Sunday morning. We called Grammy and Pappy Wagner and they came and picked up the kids around lunch time on Sunday. The afternoon went by and she was not having any major contractions. We called the midwife and she said not to worry... the baby would come when it was ready. Lisa took a hot bath and then went to bed. She woke up some time after 2:30am with more serious contractions but she was able to go back to sleep until around 4:30am. She woke me around 5 and we timed her contractions about every 5 minutes apart. We called Amanda, the midwife, and she came around 6:00am and Sarah was born 42 minutes later! The experience of having her at home was very worthwhile. It was nice not having nurses poking and proding and waking you up every 2 hours. The midwife left around 9:00 and came back around 7pm to check how Lisa and Sarah were doing. So ... baby number five has arrived and the girls are very much out numbering the boys...
