My name is Shani.  I have 3 boys, Avery (16), Tyler (12) and Cooper, our newest addition who arrived on November 19, 2007 at 3:14a.m. weighing 8lbs 10oz.  Using the the techniques and information we learned during the Bradley Childbirth classes I was able to have an unmedicated birth, completely naturally with only 1 small tear.  I couldn’t have gone through this birth without the love and support of my husband, Scott. 

Scott and I have been together since 2002, we married in 2005 and had our first child together in 2007.  Scott is an amazing father and step-father to all 3 boys.  No matter what comes our way I know we can get through it together.  I can’t imagine my life with him in it, he still gives me butterflies. 

We live in Austin, Texas while most of our families are either in New York or Wisconsin which is one of the reasons I started this blog, not only as a way to document the last pregnancy of my life but also to keep friends and family more involved and informed as Cooper grows through the years and off and on I’ll include tidbits about Avery and Tyler as well.
