Othniel Rockland Smith



Well after months of waiting, he is here. Our healthy, handsome Otto has made a safe arrival. Only a couple of hours of labor and one hefty push and he was ours to hold. I jokingly told Mike that I was going to be uber-zen about labor this time (no screaming :) and as it would happen, I was...even suprising myself. It was a really calm delivery and my midwife and nurse were spectacular.

His name Othniel means "One who speaks well of God; Lion of God". Rockland is taken from our favorite city in Maine...a place we have traveled to and have great memories of.

We will call him Otto from time to time as well.

Hopefully he will get back from his bathtime in the nursury soon...I can't wait to hold and kiss this little guys endlessly.
