Welcome to the World Max!

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

This morning, Thursday, November 16 at 7:15 Max was born. After 17 hours of intensive labor, Karen doing the hard work and Matthias providing the mental support, Maximilian August Zeller is finally here!
Just after 4:00am Karen was fully diluted and the last and hardest part of the journey would begin, the pushing. Karen did great and I think the muscles she build up during horseback riding paid off. Contraction after contraction and push after push Max slowly became visible.

Here is the first family picture!

And here the first picture of Max with open eyes.

Both mother and child are exhausted but doing fine. Max weights 6 pounds and 4 ounces (2,83 KG) and is 20 inches (50 cm) long.
