More baby pics...

Okay, here's the story...
On Monday night, October 1st, I took two ounces of castor oil at 9:00. By 10 I was having regular contractions (though I had been having false labor for over a week by now). By midnight they were 4 minutes apart and 90 seconds long so we went to the hospital where they told us I was only 2 cm (I had been for 2 weeks). They told me to walk the halls for an hour, which I did, and still nothing. So they sent me home with a pill that would put me to sleep through the pain. We were so disappointed. We got home at 4 AM, went to sleep, and I woke up at 8:00 with painful contractions. So painful that I was already doubting whether I could handle it much longer. I said "Jason, get me back to the hospital, I think I'm in transition!" We got to the hospital at 9 something, finally got a nurse to take me seriously and check me, and I was 7 cm! By the time I got the epidural they were telling me to push, and it did not have time to kick in! Evelyn was born after about 8 minutes of pushing at 11:53.

Our little sweetheart is here!

Here she is! Sorry it took us so long to post.

Evelyn Dawn Nartker (she was born on Jason's great-great grandma's birthday, whose name was Evelyn, and his mom Dawn's birthday. What are the odds!)
