Luckily, this baby held out until after I was well enough for labor...smart kid! He was born at home, in the water - into his father's hands, with his siblings looking on. He still does not have a name, but we will get to that soon enough. Labor lasted 15 hours and while not as short as I would have liked, it was a great, peaceful, laid back labor with contractions that were very doable. The pushing only lasted 12 mins, but it was certainly the most intense pushing phase I can recall. He is my biggest baby at 8 lbs 4 oz. Here is a link to some pics my photographer friend took and hopefully there will be more soon: http://www.mcwarrenphoto.blogspot.com/.

****He finally has a name: Roman Scott. Glad you are all enjoying the pics. I am so thrilled to have them!*****
