a little behind...

so i've been a little busy the past few days and feel bad that it's taken me this long to post, but...

davis is here!

after 36 hours of laboring at home (from wednesday morning to thursday afternoon), we finally made it to the hospital and davis was born at 10:30 pm on thursday.
(with no epidural and only some IV pain meds once they had to give me pitocin to go from 9 to 10 cm--it was exactly what i wanted. i spent tons of time on the birthing ball and loved that they gave me lots of options for labor.)

he was 8 lbs 1 oz, 19 1/2 inches long and absolutely perfect in every way--even with his 15 cm head :)
our two days at the hospital were great--learned a lot, davis got checked out and was declared absolutely perfect, and we got to spend more time getting to know our beautiful little boy.
and then we came home to a house full of family and lots of friends who have come to visit and help us--we cannot express our thanks to everyone who has called, visited, sent us warm wishes or supported us in some way through this process!
he is the sweetest boy with the best expressions--we have loved his alert times :)
and the little grins we've already caught.

as well as the sweetest sleeping expressions... he's definitely a relaxed baby.
i'm sure there's a lot more we could say, but i now have a little guy waiting for me to feed him...

so, from our newest little pumpkin--
and everyone at our house (yes, we made it to our church trunk or treat tonight--call me crazy, but i needed to get out!)
happy halloween!

(and pepper, too)
