Thank you everyone for the support I found here during my pregnancy!

My son was born at home yesterday at 5:49am. 8lbs 14oz, 21in long. My labor was less than four hours.

Birth story and a few pictures are up on my blog at http://daylightrising.wordpress.com/...prout-is-here/

We're all doing great. Breastfeeding the second time around is so much easier and less painful (aside from the afterbirth pains which are totally killer).

Thanks again!

Lisa

Ohhhh, he couldn't be cuter, and it's great to hear that you didn't tear (I am hoping to avoid that this time around)!
