Baby Silas was born at 11:30 pm last night (3/23) after 20 hours of intense drug free labor!

Weighing in at 7lb 4oz and 21 inches long.

I let my husband name him and although I was not crazy about it at first it is growing on me. I get to choose the middle name, but have yet to pick one :)

I will post a birth story later when I am rested. Not that many may want to hear it! I don't think I want to relive it! Lets just say I may no longer be an advocate for a drug free birth!

We are home and resting and Silas is only 13 hours old and nursing like a champ :)


  1. awe your boys look so proud!!! drug free is hard... def. cant knock an epidural or drugs if you've never experienced a birth with them and without. Natural birth is easier for some than others. But it can also be so hard on some moms and getting an epidural or some drugs to me is just SMARTER lol if you know your body... and after doing this one natural im pretty convinced id want to do the 4th with drugs HAHAHA...

  2. Ah! So beautiful!! Congrats :D
    Natural birth is a toughy -- but I'm so happy I did it too!

  3. I hear ya, I made it 20 hours drug free before they shuttled me off to the hospital. I'm glad you made it through the whole thing at the birth center. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos :)


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking a moment to comment! If you blog I will be sure to stop and visit!
