Story of Nathan...

Born at 11:30 am, Nathan weighed 11lbs 2oz, and was a whopping 22.5 inches long. 
(I do not know why this picture keeps turning sideways when I upload it. Sorry)

Contractions all night, 10 minutes apart. They never got closer, they just got stronger!
I had felt that he would be born at the equinox, but as that came and went, I was enjoying the rain, and then the sun.
Water broke about 10:30, and it was very intense after that. One hour of pushing and a new Gray. Prayers are appreciated, that I be worthy of his gift, and that we recover quickly.
