At 10:59 on October 30th, 2009, Charles Edward Prevost "Charlie" was born. He was 9 lbs 3.5 ozs and 21.5 inches. He looks a lot like Noah (yes, Noah, not so much Ezra :) and has their same dark hair.
The midwife had stripped my membranes twice and still nothing happened so yesterday morning we went into the hospital to have my water broken, which finally started some contractions going. They did Pitocin augmentation, which was adding a small amount to help the contractions be more consistent. By 7 PM they were really intense and getting harder to endure. Around 10 PM I was so tired and hungry and getting really frustrated that I wanted to give up. I was about 8 cms though and feeling the need to push so I did and out he came!
Thanks for all your prayers, we certainly appreciate them :)

Congratulations again! You did good. He's a big 'un. I was worried sick and praying for you all day. God is so kind. I can't wait to see photos of him! I love his name. I wish I could be there to hold him and shoot him (;)). It's like we're breaking a tradition or something.

Please tell me they caved and gave you a little nibble of food? It's hard to labor when you want a steak. :)
