It Was Brought

Woot!

Robin June Miller McFeely
8 pounds
21 inches
Born 8:09pm, February 24th, 2010
Apgars: 9 and 9

We had to drive like bats out of hell to get to the hospital before she was born -- drove on the shoulder of the gridlocked highway with the hazards on flashing my high beams with Ash yelling, trying not to push the baby out.

We did the whole "running a pregnant woman in a wheelchair through the hospital" thing, Ash yelling like the building was on fire.  It was an excellent entrance.

We got Ash into a bed, and started pushing immediately -- Ash had arrived complete.  All went well -- 59 minutes of pushing and one suction cup later, Robin arrived.  Mom and baby are doing extremely well.

I wish I had a picture for you, but I forgot the little cord that hooks the camera up to the computer.

Yahoo! Very exciting. Congrats on NOT having the baby in the car. the only thing worse than delivering a baby without drugs is trying to keep the baby in on the car to the hospital.
