She was in a bit of a hurry to get here and decided to come early. Shbe did take her time coming out though.
Date of birth: Wednesday May 21, 2008 at 8:39 pm.
Weight: 6lbs 13.1oz
Length: 19 in
Mama and baby are doing well, as are big bro and daddy.
Jack did get alot of daddy time while i was in labor and recovery.
That's all for now. I'm going to take advantage of both babes being down for a nap and take one myself. Birth story will be coming shortly. As will more photos.
this was less of a pain to do than i anticipated. i started doing it by myself and then mark help me finish up. the plaster was starting to dry and i didn't want to wreck the sides by moving around.
the only question now is: What do i do with it? Make it all artsy and hand it on the wall, or leave it in a box?
she hasn't come yet and the contractions have subsided and now we're basically ready. all the major things are done. now i just have the little things that i wanted to do before she arrives, i.e. fininsh jack's photo album, some sewing, etc.

not to mention the 26lbs of love that is Jack!! Factor in three flights of stairs up to the apartment= tired mama! it's good though. it's keeping me in shape.
my doula is coming today to meet me. i really want to do the natural childbirth thing this time. with jack i was just too tired in the end and just wanted to get some sleep so i went with the epidural. supposedly second children are supposed to come in half the time, so that sounds promising.
You can see what he's going to look like as a man in the first picture. my little monkey love.
