Baby Dion Cardile

...arrived at 6:29AM on May 1st after a day and night of  hard work by Mara and much cheerleading by Dad Stephen, friends and family.  Here's some of the crew....

Things settled down to hard work at about 2-3AM.  Mara was almost quiet through it all and got lots of loving energy and support through it all from everyone, particularly her coach, Vassant ......

But progress was steady and by 6AM, he arrived...though sleepy at first, he was soon figuring out his first meal

Here's Dad and Mom and Uncle Aaron, from back in February...
