8/18/08


She's here, finally.
17 hours of labor, so much for a shorter labor, okay, down 2 hours from lance.
She is here, all 8 pounds, 10 ounces of her.
I can't believe me, little 5'5'' and 110 (not pregnant self) delivered a big baby.
It was quite an experience, one I don't know if I will be repeating.
I thought this was going to be so much easier than Lance and it was in some ways, but very similar in a lot of ways.
Nursing is not going easier and it is tough.
Lance though is in love.

I am excited that I am out of the hospital today on my 30th birthday, but then I realized if I was there, I would be in the same hospital I was in 30 years ago and if I would have delivered last night, it would have been the son of the doctor who delivered me on the same day at the same hospital, would have been cool, but I am glad she has her own birthday.
