Our baby boy arrived November 5th at 11:10am after a 14-hour drug free labor and delivery! (pushed for 50 minutes!) His name is William Charles but we are calling him Charlie! He weighs 6 lbs 14 oz and is 19 and 1/4 inches long. Breastfeeding like a champion!

I'll write the birth story soon! (some stuff didn't go as planned but my doula really helped me get the drug free birth that I wanted!) And most importantly, Charlie is perfectly healthy. I'm so in love.

Congrats! He is beautiful! I think it is amazing that it is so early in the month and there have been so many babies born already!!! Good motivation for those of us sitting here waiting impatiently! I am so glad you got the goal you set for yourself, even if I wasn't a doula I agree they rock! Happy baby mooning and enjoy nursing!
