Leonidas Gavin arrived on Saturday at 10:40 pm after 20 hours of labor. I am proud to say that it was done without any drugs and it only took me 10 minutes to push him into this world. He weighed 7lbs. 5 oz. and was 20.5 inches long. He rated a 9 on his APAGAR scale after a minute and a 10 after 5 minutes. I came thru with no stitches or tearing . I was able to stay at home for 18 hours of the labor. Leo is already taken to breastfeeding and eats every two hours. We came home today at 2 pm; the dogs have really taken to him. They love to follow us around while he is in his sling.


We'll post pictures after christmas!
