So the full moon got things started after all! After almost 24 hours of drug free labor , Violet Evangeline Thomas was born on 04/10/2009 at 1:38pm. She weighed 7 lbs. 12 oz. and is 20" long. Labor was a little difficult but my amazing husband, midwife and doula were the best team and got us through just fine (well, maybe not my bum so much . Will post more pics when I find a minute!
