My sweet, impatient little girl was born Saturday morning at 6:46am. She was 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 20 in. long. I was scheduled for an induction on the 19th but evidently that day didn't work for her. I went to bed that night with a dull low back ache which I chalked up to doing too much housework and I woke up a bit later to a really strong contraction. They kept coming, getting closer and more painful so I woke my partner and off we went to the hospital. We arrived at 3am and Ayla was born less than 4 hours later. She is a great sleeper and nursing is going smoothly.

Yay! My hairdresser is named Ayla. She says she has purposefully never read the books.

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

It seems so weird that she might not have been born until today if we'd made it to the scheduled induction. The last 6 days have been the most wonderful days of my entire life.

Oh and I bet you were hoping to find pics.
