Maximus Brooks Purvis

Maximus Brooks Purvis was born at home on Friday, March 17 at 6:36 PM. He weighs 8 lbs, 14.5 oz. and is 22 inches long.

It was a perfect birth, everything seemed to go so quickly! He was born in the water after only 40 minutes or so of pushing. Ron "caught" him, and brought him up and onto Ellies chest right away, and later cut the cord. Max was nursing within the hour. More photos and details to come, but here's a first glimpse of him just a few hours old.

Welcome to our baby Purvis. We've waited along time for you. I'm glad your all doing well. He looks like he will hold his own with his cousins. Love, Pam and Gardner.
