Brodie Avalon was born at 1:38AM on August 31st (Day before his EDD!) after only about 5.5 hours of labour (only 3 hours active!) weighing 8lbs 13 oz at 22" long. I'll have pictures and more details soon, but I just wanted to let everyone know that he's HERE!!

So strange -- I'm 100% sure I posted saying how cute Brodie is and how it seems like you had an awesome birth. But it isn't here. I wonder if I accidentally posted that response to another thread. Anyway, regardless, Brodie is adorable and I love your pictures. Congratulations! And welcome to the world, little one! * Jaime
