No, I didn't set a world record as the first woman to go 6 weeks past her due date...I'm just crappy at updating my blog, and having two kids is kicking my butt! However, our beautiful little girl did finally make her appearance on October 4th, 2011, at 4:37am, weighing in at 8lbs, 7 oz, 20.5 inches long. She was a mere 6 days overdue.
The short version of the birth story is that I was induced with Pitocin, had my water broken, experienced my body's own labor when my body took over from the Pitocin, dilated to completion, pushed for an hour, and then had a C-section. The long version of the birth story is a good one, and I wouldn't dream of depriving all those birth junkies of a good birth story (yes, even one that ends in a C-section can be a good one!), so look for that some time in the coming weeks (or maybe months? We'll try for weeks...).
Anyway, here are some more pictures of our cute little girl, who is now a month old!
Meeting Mom for the first time.
With Dad and Big Brother Cyrus (who could not possibly be more in love with his little sister)
With cousin Jackson, who was born almost exactly 4 weeks earlier.
At about two weeks old.
