It's a...

It's a boy! A big boy! Austin arrived weighing 11 pounds, 12 ounces.

It was a scary birth though after twelve hours of uneventful labor. At one point, the doc called for a cesarean (the baby's head was showing but not progressing) and tried to push the baby back in. Quickly changed his mind and with several pushes, Austin came out with the cord compressed near his head and shoulders.

Mom and baby are doing fine today.

Congratulations to Beth. I can imagine comically the doctor trying to push the baby in and her pushing in a reverse tug of war. Got lots of kids too...after the first two, you quit crying and get better at pun remarks each birth.
