Well, our stubborn child finally decided that she wanted to come into the world today! We went to the hospital last night and they broke Alisha's water at about 9:30 p.m., and after 15 1/2 hours of labor Sophia was born on October 15, 2008, 12:51 p.m. Alisha was a trooper throughout the whole birth, and even though it was a rough labor, she kept a positive attitude the whole time.
I immediately saw that it was a girl, and I was shocked. I was totally expecting a little boy to come out of there....but once again I was wrong and Alisha was right. It doesn't matter though, because she is a beautiful, healthy baby girl and we both fell in love with her immediately.
Sophia was born:
7 pounds, 12 ounces
20 inches long
Dark hair and dark blue eyes.
