Gavin Patrick Murray!




8lb 8oz; 21.25in long, born at 1:51 A.M.

The short and sweet (birth story will come later) version: water broke at 4:00 a.m., the next day at 6:30 p.m. my first contractions started, at 1:30 I feel the urge to push and he was born 21 minutes later with the umbilical cord wrapped 6 times around his neck!! It was an amazing and wonderful home birth and I feel great!!!

Six times around his neck?! Goodness, I'm just glad you both are okay! He looks awesome and I'm so happy for you and Reed. By the way, please tell Reed that I made all the phone calls but I didn't need to. EVERYONE already knew. :) R

Congratulations!! He's beautiful! I'm glad the labor (seemingly) went easily and QUICKLY, wow! But 6 times?!?!?! Clearly, he's an overachiever already... ;)
