Monkey was born August 30th at 2:40pm. I had gone in the night before at 7pm to be induced, but didn't even get a room until 8:30, I think. I don't remember much about specific times. I do know that it seemed ridiculously easy compared to what I've been told about labor. I kept having a conversation with the nurses, J, and my mom in between pushing. J found that hilarious.
She was 7 lbs 8.5 oz and 18.5" long when she was born. I was expecting a much bigger baby considering I was 8 lbs 6 oz and 22" long when I was born. And I was the smallest of my mom's three kids.
Two days after Monkey was born my former assistant manager's wife gave birth to a baby girl and two days after that a former high school classmate gave birth to a baby girl. To balance that out another former coworker had a boy about a month before Monkey, my sister's due with a boy in a week (exactly!), and my former boss is due with a boy in a month. It's going baby crazy here in the midwest!
I'm gonna go play with my adorable daughter now, but I'll leave you with a picture.
