Our baby boy was born on July 5, 2007, 4:49 pm, weighing 7 lbs 7 oz, 19 inches long.

Labor lasted much longer than DS 1, about 24 hours or so total, but he had an awesome birth in the water at the freestanding birth center.

I'll post a story later when I am not so tired.

Pics on my Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...0&l=e2e7d219f8

We decided on Oliver Lee for his name
