He has arrived, Monday July 6...all 8 lbs 5 oz measuring 21". A Very Handsome Dude as well.
His mom at 5' 3" was able to, in her words, "Amazon" her way through 2 1/2 hours of very painful back labor due to him being face up insead of face up until the very last minute with out any meds. The doctor & nurse were very pround of her as we all were. Her mom & hubby were very good coaches, too. The nurse a nice lady from South Africa was great with her, stayed with her the whole time and pulled some over time at the end. Our daughter was at it from 8 am till 7 pm. The nurse was a great help, they all said. She had a little bit of an Afrikaans accent as well. Papa wasn't there until they were about to bath him. I did finish a painting
I had been working on during the wait time.
Mother & Baby are both doing well! They got home yesterday evening.
