Francesca Claire Emery, born Feb 17th at 11:22 am, 8lbs 13 oz., 20.5 in, she has us mesmerized. She is beautiful and more than I could have dared imagine. We're all head over heels in love.

Bart is turned to mush. He is so wonderful with her. The kids are dazzled.

I am blessed and content.

STILL pregnant...

Over 3 cm dilated. 75% effaced. Bag of amniotic fluid literally BULGING. Head WAY low. Yet, still pregnant. To quote my doctor, "I can't understand why you aren't going into labor." Um, yeah, me neither.

Will induce on Thursday if Francesca still hasn't come by then. I think she's quite comfy where she is, thank you very much, so I do anticipate being induced at this point.

Sorry for being so unreachable. Story for another time and place. Let's all think happy, go-into-labor thoughts please!! Thanks so much.

That's it for now.
