Thanks for all of your prayers guys! Just came home to let the dog out and saw the thread!

The wife was amazing and did it totally naturally this time around, no drugs or cesarian section. We had to have an emergency cesarian section with our first child after over 30 hours of labor, so this was a real blessing to avoid all of that. But I have to say I've never seen a person in that much pain.

Anyway, Amelia is beautiful and thanks to all of you for the prayers because we certainly needed them in there!

P.S. If you want to see pics eventually then send me a friend request on Facebook as I try to maintain some privacy online with personal and family life stuff.

Congradulations!
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman
