Baby O!






9 lbs 5 0z
20 1/4 inches

Despite the full range of ancient and modern birthing knowledge & techniques, 15 hours of progressively stronger contractions, led to... zero progress. Add in the other complications, and we ran out of non-surgical options.

All of which culminated in a very, very happy ending...

Congratulations!! You have a beautiful baby boy! I have just found your blog and really enjoy it! I know you have more important things to think about right now, but my husband and I have a farm just down the road in Gallipolis and admire your ideals. Keep up the good work and enjoy your new addition. Maybe we can share farming stories soon!

Sorry for this being so late... CONGRATULATIONS! (I apparently haven't checked for a week.)
During our long drive home this weekend, my mom & I were wondering if you guys had the baby yet...
Congrats again on your baby boy! Is "O" the name you came up with? :)
