Sylvia's first checkup. She's almost back to birthweight (7 lb 6 oz) and not jaundiced, which is good stuff!!

I'm doing a-ok, healing, trying to sleep, writing my 4th year review for Reed and feeding, burping, changing diapers of the little one. Grandparents Crocker arrive tomorrow, which will be very welcome help!

7 AM


Sylvia Marie Crocker Allen was born!!
7 lb 7 oz and 20.5 inches.

Wow, truly nothing is else I've experienced is like that.

We had pretty smooth sailing, with unignorable contractions starting at 2am, water broke at 3:45 am, made it to hospital at 4:30am, and Sylvia was born at 7:16am. I used some nitrous oxide to help through the most painful contractions - I did appreciate having that option. Biggest complication was that her cord was wrapped around her neck 3 times, but the midwife delivering sorted that out quickly. All the nurses, midwife and Tom were just so helpful in coaching me through a totally new process, I'm very grateful.

We came home Tuesday afternoon and are learning lots hour-by-hour!!
