I just wanted to say quickly that my beautiful, incredible son was born yesterday, at home, on mother's day, at 4:30 pm after 14 excrutiating hours... it was the hardest thing I've ever done, but so worth it in the end!!!!

He's just gorgeous, and my DH and I have fallen crazy in love...

Birth story to come

BTW, since the May mamas have had such beautiful names so far, let me explain Remy's name a little: "Remiel" is the Archangel of hope (sometimes also called Uriel, I think) and was also a character in Neil Gaiman's series, The Sandman. "Sayid" is an Arabic name (normally spelled Said, but we like the "y") which means either "Happy" or "Master."

Congrats, and I also love the name!! The name Sayid makes me think of the character on Lost, too, who I really like.

I look forward to hearing your birth story!

thanks everyone

remy is sleeping on the boob right now (his favorite place) so i think it's time for me to eat lunch and nap!!!!

(we actually forgot about the character on 'lost,' so that connection is a coincidence -- but, yeah, remiel is a neil gaiman name!!! even tho neither of us have read sandman, we love gaiman's other books, and can't wait to read sandman...)

birth story/ pics still to come, when i get a little more used to naking...
