Riley made her debut on December 20, 2012. We ended up having to evict her because she was in no hurry to come on her own and I didn't want to be in the hospital on Christmas. We went in early on the morning of the 20th, started the necessary meds, waited around all day, saw little to no progress for about 6 hours then within an hour and a half had dilated from 4 to 9 cm. The doctor and nurses started getting stuff ready for delivery around 8:30 and she was born at 9:00pm. I had a very easy delivery and consider myself very, very lucky! I have no complaints about delivery, other than being soooo hungry all day. Ha ha. Here are some pics from the last few weeks.
She's got long, skinny feet!
