After about 14 hours of labor little Nicholas William Niewald entered the world weighing in at 7bls. 11 oz. and 21 inches. We don't think he looks like either of us distinctly, but he is our cute bundle of joy. His cord was wrapped around his neck twice! All in all the labor experience was good. The room had the doula and her assistant, Andrew, my mom and the nurses....it was a party. Soon afterward Dad and my sister Grace joined us. We all took pictures together. Wow - what a priviledge it is to be able to bring a new life into the world! We are loving it.
