new podium boy – Karlo Gordon Hood

January 30, 2007 · Print This Article

Arrived on Saturday night at 9:08pm. He weighed in at 7lbs 4oz. and
measured 19 1/4″ long. He is healthy and doing well. Labor lasted
23 hours and was the hardest workout of my life. Had I not worked
out the entire pregnancy he definitely would have arrived via c-
section. We faced quite a few challenges during labor, but he
handled the stress beautifully. We are all now resting and getting
to know each other, which is quite wonderful. Chuck is having the
time of his life and is a very proud dad. He’s especially proud of
the fact that he was able to stay upright and watch the delivery and
(a major shock to me) he even cut the umbilical cord.

What an amazing experience!
