Oh what funny pictures.. whoever took those was GREAT!!! ha! Girl you rock.. and just for everyone to know.. NO she was in active labor 5-6 centimeters from the top picture down.. and then the one of her in the bed she was in transition (7-10 cm) and bob and I were convinced she was breezing through it all. She was so calm and relaxed (she will tell you she was hurting) but she was in control, one contraction at a time.
Greta you did a great job! made it look easy! And that little man is absolutely adorable! I don't know if this means I get to post my doula version of your birth yet or if you are wanting to post your side of the story first.. let me know! I know you got some other great pics to share..namely one from the hallway!! ;-) so take your time.. but please keep 'em coming..

Good job guys! You are some baby birthing pro's!!
definitely no "whaling and gnashing of teeth" to quote bob!
