Last night after a very LONG labor I gave birth to Eliot Keene-6lbs 5 oz. He was born at a freestanding birthcenter. I had a phenomenal birth team and a very intense ride-but everything turned out fine! We're now at home and he's nursing very well!

I'm in love with the little guy!

Keene is a family name that I'm partial to. I have this thing about passing down family names as middle names.
