He is here! David Gabriel Shell, 6lbs-14 oz, born around 2:25 am!

Oh boy, what a tough girl my sister turned out to be! We went back to the hospital around 6pm and around 8ish they broke her water because she was still only dialated to 4. Right after that they gave her an epidural which was wonderful, her contractions kept going, but she could feel them nearly as much. She slept a bit and the next time she got checked she was 10 centimeters plus was at +1. So she satared pushing, then the doctor had her stop and wait 40 mintues to continue. Once she started pushing she only had to push for about 15 minutes. When Little David came out he wasn't beathing on his own so, after what seemed like forever, the nurses got him going and he is doing great. He still has some ick to get out so he can breath perfectly, but besides that he is perfect & has Bobbie's little nose :)
