Hi Ladies,
I am pleased to annouce the arrival of our son Benajmin. I went into labor around 9:30PM on Aug 29, checked in to the hospital in hard labor on Aug 30, but out little man made us wait until 4:00AM on Sept 1 before making his arrival earthside. He weighed 7lbs 4oz and was 21 inches long. Labor was very difficult and we are all still recovering. I will post a birth story at some point after I finish processing everything that happened. However, please now that we are at home now and doing well.

I probably will not be able to update the welcome thread for quite a while. If there is anyone who is willing to go through the threads and send me a list of all of the birthes announced from Aug 29 on, it will make my life alot easier. If not, I will just do it once I have the time. Thanks for being patient.

I hope everyone is enjoying their babes (and that all of us will be mommas soon!).

Emily
