This morning we welcomed a perfect little boy into our family. Samuel Robert was born at 7:20am, weighing in at 6lb 14oz and measuring 20.5 inches long.

I’ll eventually post a full version of the birth story, but in a nutshell the VBAC was a success and the second half of my labor went really fast AND SO I gave birth sans any type of drugs whatsoever. I’m still rather in shock about that. Both Sam and I are doing well. He’s been sleeping all day, I’ve been high on adrenaline all day, and am hoping to get some sleep tonight. Ryan seemed in awe of his little bro during his visit this morning, and continues to insist that the baby’s name is Goy.
