We arrived at the hospital around 6:00 AM and got ourselves mentally prepared.
The Pitocin started around 7:00, and Becky really began feeling it a short time later. Here she is with a centimeter count.
Blessed be the hands of the CRNA. She got her epidural at 9:30ish and got a reprieve from the insane squeezing.
An hour later, she had progressed from a 5 to a 9.5 and felt those primal urges, though completely devoid of pain.
The following movie has some flying uterine matter. Beware.
And there she is. Sticky and sweet, like a carmel apple, but without the stick.
Nora Deanne Tolman was born at 10:48 AM.
She weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce. She's a little less bald than her father, and she's almost as beautiful as her mother.
Sam is very dissappointed that she couldn't start dressing Nora up and take her home today. Lucy was mostly interested in the rolling stool.
