It's a Boy!!!

Asa McClain Shelby
DOB: 9-9-09
9:01 AM
8 lbs 14.5 oz
20 3/4 inches long

We are both doing well. He is a big boy for being 2 weeks early. I was supposed to see the midwife today at 10:30 this morning but he decided to make his arrival instead. Labor was less than 3 hours from the first contraction until he was born. Labor and delivery went well and we should go home tomorrow morning.

He is so precious. Maybe they had the due date wrong. I've read bigger babies are healthier.
