This is waaaaay overdue, but:

Ianto Sol was born peacefully at home after a two-hour active labor (surprisingly gentle, despite the shortness/intensity) at 2:12p on 05/19/10. He arrived 12 days before his due date and was 7 lbs. 8 oz., 20.5 in.

I breathed him out without really ever pushing at all. It was amazing. Here's how my MW described the birth on her FB page:

Quote:
A cute baby boy joined us this afternoon just before the storm. His mama was beautiful and so quietly powerful, as she brought her little one into the world.
All is well and we are happily babymooning... and navigating my 2yo's stormy transition to big brotherhood. Tandem nursing s such a mixed blessing!

Hope everyone is where they want to be. More soon when I'm not typing one-handed... which, let's be honest, will probably be some time in 2012.

Congratulations, again.

Ianto (pronounced "YAHN-toe") is Welsh, and therefore a nod to my heritage. Plus, it's the name of a character on a Doctor Who spinoff.

Sol is Spanish for sun. As I was laboring and looking t the window, the sun was shining and everything was just so beautiful. Of course, it started hailing and storming as I was pushing/breathing him out.

We have some neat names in our DDC!

Was looking at some MWs sites (for inspiration for a site I'm doing for my MW), and saw your DS's name. I told my friend, I *knew* that was an MDC baby!

Congrats, again! Great name, and certainly one that will be remembered!
