Wonderful birth story Shannon! Congratulations on your natural birth! I love that you dodged the "on the clock" for your water breaking. I didn't know to do that last time and went to the hospital right away, but I'll do the same as you if it happens again. Beautiful pics too. A few of them look so much like Cori right after she was born....they made me feel a bit nostalgic.

Your birth story was great, Shannon! I love all the great details and congrats on working hard to get the birth that you wanted!

And YAY for Matthew gaining weight...sounds like he is growing just perfectly!

Wow, Shannon! I'm so proud of you. You give me encouragement to think that maybe (just maybe) I can do this naturally. Congratulations on your perfect little bundle!!

Great story Shannon...Congratulations! And, I should add, for just having delivered a baby, you look great in the pictures. I never looked very good. Actually, I always looked awful!
