The big moment arrives...

We decided to induce labor a few days after the due date, partly because we felt ready, and partly because my doctor was leaving town that next weekend! It was more than 24 hours from beginning to delivery! When she finally came into the world, she did not want to cry at first. Then she sneezed a few times. She quietly cried (unlike now) and stopped to look around to see if anyone noticed, then she cried agian.
