Yeah, I know it's late, but it took this long to persuade Julie to hand over her password. -Sam
On Tuesday, February 26, 2008, at 5:20 A.M., Julie was dreaming of a getaway in Hawaii when she was awakened by the literal "pop" of her water breaking. 13 all-natural-no-epideral-I'm-serious-she-didn't-use-any-drugs hours later we welcomed Naomi Jane into our family. Naomi weighed a slight 7 lbs. 14 oz. (Julie was visibly disappointed not to have broken the 8 lb. threshold) and was 21 inches tall/long. I use the past tense because she has lost a few ounces since, which she is steadily gaining back, and because we opted to get her legs "lengthened" to prepare for what will surely be a record-breaking career in the WNBA.
Julie was AMAZING throughout the entire labor and delivery. Her strength and calm have only deepened my love and respect for her. She even managed not to scream "GET IT OUT OF ME!", like last time. As she recovers I'm sure she would appreciate comments here and emails of support.
For everyone who voted "girl" on the poll, we'll be sending out autographed used diapers within the week.
