And In The Blue Corner Weighing In At An Impressive 9.9lbs...

Sloan Christian Reed Van Ahn! I'm pretty speechless at the moment-he is just perfect and beautiful and all those things that mothers are so proud of. He made quite a arrival on Thursday night. My FIRST contraction was at 9:30pm, arrived at the hospital by 10:45pm, had him at 11:53pm. That's less than 2.5 hours and that's less an epidural-ouch that hurt! Luckily I can hardly recall the pain, but I can still picture myself screaming. We are home and his brothers are in total ahh. I'll post more pictures later :)

Yahoo sister! I am so in love with Sloan, love the name by the way... I cannot believe you went so quickly and without meds, you are my superwoman hero, he's a big boy! I wish desperately I was there to hold him and give you a big hug. Congratulations. Enjoy this special time, as you know it will go so quickly. I wish I had my time with a teeny newborn back again, it seems like a blur. OK, I am getting teary so I am just going to go look at his picture again. AND love the end of the year teacher gifts, I might steal this! Tell Becca thanks!

Wow!! I am impressed that you pushed him out. I must be a baby, both of mine were 9.8lbs and they were by c-section. Congrats and I hope you all are doing well.
