Hey guys I'm here and alive!! We just got our LO home! Our adorable 9 lb 1 oz boy was born at 10:02 on Sunday the 20th-just minutes before the full moon, after all! Didn't have the heart to wake up Alpaca at midnite when we finally got to phone calls though... He nurses like a champ already...and OH what a latch! Now we just have to figure out a name!
Labor was pretty awful for me but I'm glad now that I stuck it out. I will update with all the details later after we've gotten some rest!
I hope the full moon was kind to a few more of ya!!

Life with a toddler: it's not so much the volume, it's the pitch!

WAAAHOOOOOO!!!!! As my 2 year old says... :

I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU! I was worried about your long labor...in fact i was up a lot last night worrying about other things and was concerned about you and prayed against a c-s. YAY! Welcome little one!

Congratulations! Welcome home! We were all worried for you so I'm so glad to hear you're home and (relatively?) okay - can't wait to hear details.

Welcome into the world, Cookie Loose!
Congratulations on your BOY! I hope you are eating him up
And phew-y on the labor... I was really hoping all would work out well without the need for pitocin, c/s, etc. Looking forward to story and photos!

Congratulations! The 20th is a nice day to have a birthday (it's my birthday--so I was hoping NOT to have the baby during the full moon).
