It's a boy!

Dear friends,

Baby # 4 arrived on his due date -- Monday at 12:34 p.m., after a long and painful labor (16 hours) with no progress, followed by 5 hours of progress once they finally gave me some pain relief with an epidural. I did manage to avoid both the pitocin and the threatened c/s, and VBAC successfully for the second time. I was able to come home from the hospital the day after he was born; it's chaotic at home, but just as bad at the hospital, where someone wants to check something about the mother or the baby every hour or so. Plus, the food is better at home.

He weighed 7 pounds 6 oz, and was 20 inches long. I'll share his name following his bris (ritual circumcision)/naming next Monday. We are overjoyed that he is here; he's as sweet as can be, and I'm having fun playing with my stash. So far, I think everything has been working great -- pockets, fitteds, pf's -- it's all good.

Hope everyone's doing well. I'm looking forward to hearing from Amanda, my DDB, with great news -- has anyone heard?
