Emerson Claire

7:15pm--I show up at the hospital bearing Taco John's for Uncle Brad.

Auntie Jess looks on, calmly (the epidural is doing its job).

7:30--the on-call doctor comes in and breaks Jess' waters. She's at about 4.5 centimeters.

8:00--Jess' epidural is no longer doing its job: she is contracting strongly.

8:15--Jess feels pressure and we call the nurse, who checks and finds Jess at 8cm (I think she was bluffing, though, and Jess was at the full 10). They call for the doctor to come back.

8:27pm: Emerson Claire comes into the world, refusing to wait for any high-falutin' doctor.

6lbs, 6oz., 19.8 inches.

10 fingers, 10 toes...lots of dark hair.

Proud Auntie Jen.

Mama, Daddy, and baby are all fine.

Welcome, Baby Emmy. We're so glad to meet you!

And of course to Brad too! It looks like the Taco Johns did the trick!
