I guess it is a cliche that there is nothing to compare with the arrival of a child, but it is also so very true.

Evelyn Grace Smith entered the world at 10:15 am on Wednesday May 17, 2006. And yes, she is absolutely adorable. Just be thankful, dear readers, that I don't know how to post pictures to this blog or you would be inundated. It was so strange - Linda and I both agree on this - we had been trying to conceive for almost a year, followed 9 1/2 months of pregnancy, followed by 14 hours of labor and still, when we looked down and saw that baby resting on the bed we were surprised. Nothing at all prepares you for the reality of seeing the long expected child.

Needless to say, we are both thrilled, extremely happy and very tired. Linda and Evelyn left the hospital Friday so last night was our first night at home as a family. Maybe that is why little Evelyn didn't want to spend the night sleeping!!! Mom and baby are both healthy, although Mom is still sore, as can be expected.

You may, in a future post, read more about labor, inducement, water birth etc., but seeing as Evelyn was up until 5AM, that is all for now!
