A baby boy arrived this morning after 4.5 hours of labor (I think I prefer longer labors BTW). 8lbs 12ozs. Name and birth story to follow in a bit, I did get my UC though.

Awesome, Peony!!! Can't wait for details! Love the forehead, just like Eden's!! Someone told me forehead wrinkles on a baby mean they're an old soul.

Can't wait to hear his name and story!

Mama to one little blur, watching everything move too fast. Eden 4/10/2009.

Thanks! And I just might take you up on that offer, I have nothing for a boy besides newborn sleepers.

Congrats on your baby boy! I had heard they were busy, I ran into an nurse from there Friday night. It wasn't just Mercy, my MW had a birth everyday from Wed-Sat.
