Baby Shannon

Shannon Aoife LeMon born 01-11-10

Shannon meaning "Having Ancient Wisdom" and it is also a river in Ireland.
Aoife (Ee-fa) meaning "A beautiful woman and in mythology it means warrior princess"
LeMon a variation on lemon that gets mispronounced daily, also it means nothing when translated from French.

Mom and baby are rcovering from their big day and doing great. Denise made the delivery look like a breeze. She was given Pitocin at about 7:30 yesterday morning and had some incredibly strong and frequent contractions which helped make up her mind as to whether she wanted an epidural or not. She got an epidural around 9:00 which made her contractions more bearable and better spacing between the contractions. When it came time to push just after noon, Denise pushed for about 45 minutes and Shannon was born at 1:17 weighing 8lbs 1 oz and 20.5 inches in length.

A much needed break

We are going to a family reunion in Utah on Wed the 29th. It's been a long time since the whole family got together. Everyone but Jeff. Looking forward to time with the family and some relaxation, hopefully. I'll try to post some pictures when I get back.

Yes, we are still alive

We are not the best bloggers... as you can see.  I think we do things that would be worth reporting but I don't really think when I get home from something fun or interesting to put it on my blog.  We'll see if we can update it more than a few times per year...

Beck..... at the Uptown Theatre

I feel young again! What a performance by Beck, great seats, good company and the music was exceptional. MGMT , I like most of their stuff but they were way to loud last night or maybe I'm just showing my age! I saw Steve let loose for the first time!!! He really can dance. Great night had by all.
