duke is here

The newness, craziness, emotions, stresses, joys, etc. of motherhood can be blamed for my absence.  It's a pretty good excuse though, I think. :)

I hardly know where to begin in talking about the past (almost) 2 weeks.  I'll go ahead and warn you that the next several posts are going to be about our new little baby.  There's just so much to say and express and ask.

For those of you that voted on his arrival being on October 22nd, you are the winners!  He came right on his due date which, I've read, is something that only about 5% of babies do on their own.  This little man is evidently a planner like his mama.

I got to the hospital about 1:50 a.m. on October 22nd and had him at 5:29 p.m.  That's a total of around 15 hours of labor at the hospital plus about 5 hours of labor at home.  20 hours of natural labor is almost indescribable, but eventually, I'll share a little bit of my journey.

So, for now, I'll leave you with this ...

Duke Abraham
Born on October 22nd, 2011 at 5:29 p.m.
