We have a new baby!
Welcome Aiden Luke!!
He was born at home at 4:14pm on Friday April 25th. He weighed in at 9 lb. and was 20" long!
It was a long labor - 14+ hours and NOTHING like any labor that I have had before, but we are so thankful that he is here. Thinking back on it now, I realize that it is ONLY God's strength and divine hand that got me through safe and sound. It was most definitely the hardest birthing I have done before. The labor itself wasn't bad - at all! Everything kept stalling and before I knew it, I was at an 8 and just sitting there eating chicken with my family and friends and celebrating with Aiden's cake! haha!
Here are some pics of his labor and his arrival:
