Emma Grace has arrived!

I went to my doctor's appointment at 10:45 am on Tuesday morning, expecting to go home because not much was going on with me or Emma. Turns out I had high blood pressure and my doctor wanted to induce. So, I walked across the breezeway from my doctor's office to the hospital and checked in. They began inducing me about 1:30 pm and all went well for a while. Emma was progressing nicely. And then she got stuck! I went five hours with no progress at all, so the doctor recommended we do a C-Section, so that's what happened. Emma Grace Parks was born at 5:48 am on Wednesday, May 21, 2008 (her due date!), weighed 8 lbs, and was 19 inches long. We are all doing well right now. We should be going home on Saturday morning.

Ms. Emma Grace and I knew she would come on her due date. She is very punctual. I will buy her her own calendar soon! :)
