A beautiful baby girl was born at 11:30pm last night. Her heart rate was dipping quite low during some of the pitocin induced contractions, so we elected to have a Cesarian rather than risk an emergency situation. She was 6lb. 13oz., with long stawberry blond hair and an adorable curiousity about the world. I held her for about an hour while Vinci was "coming to" and she didn't cry once. We brought her into our room for the night and I got to change my first two diapers and experience sleep sessions.
Vinci is feeling well, but is very tired. She was so strong and did a beautiful job laboring. Our doula, Leacey, helped out quite a bit, and I was greatful to have someone there that could actually help relieve some of Vinci's pain--unlike me.
