So at 3:11pm, my wonderful little son was born. It was a long and tiring labor starting on Monday at 5am with very little as far as non-intense labor goes. When it got to the pushing I was questioning if I could do it. But Every thing that I had prayed for and wished for came true. We didn't get induced (was dealing with preg induced hypertension), got the midwife I liked, got a nurse I liked, was able to do completely drug free. We have a wonderul little boy, born 3:11 10/5 at 20 inches, 7.9 lbs; I'm so smitten!!

Happily married, crunchy mama crazy in love with our little man, Bam bam (10/5/10) due aug 2014 with our rainbow bean missing our 3 angel babies (9/09, 7/12, 12/12)
