I had my little guy on the 24th at 11:29 a.m.
Natural in the hospital with a fantastic supporting staff.
my dh and mom were with me.

Jasper Thomas
7lbs. 13 oz.
21 inches

healthy, perfect, beautiful and a great BFer!!

then the fun began.
as I was taken to my room DH was taken to the ER for kidney stones. Within the hour there was tornado warning and all the patients had to be put into the hallways of the hospital until it passed. When I was dishcharged after 24 hours we came home to a house without power OR phone. The power came on yesterday but we still don't have a phone. I think it may be a blessing in disguise.

All is well now. I'll write more later and maybe try a picture (never done it).
Good luck to everyone still waiting.

I am in love!!

Yes, what a great birth story to tell him when he's older. And the phone thing is probably a blessing in disguise.
