Little Leo was born on Election Day! November 6, 2012, at 3:52 p.m. Only four days late this time! 7 lb 6 oz, 19.5 inches long, full head of dark hair, and totally adorable.

I'll post a longer birth story later, but in short: between his perfect position (anterior) and it being the second child, giving birth was no problem. The postpartum hemorrhage (AGAIN), not so much.

We're all settling in at home. Sam is a very sweet big brother. Nursing is going well. I actually got a three-hour chunk of sleep last night, and some coffee this morning, so my brain is almost working.

Leo!
