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.
