Hump Day...BIRTHDAY!

I'm exhausted...23 hours of labor only to end with a C-Section. Le sigh. It was quite the adventure, I assure you. And all the women who say you forget all the pain and agony once you meet your child are LIARS. Big, fat ones to be exact. :) I'll provide all the gory details soon - Joe was so awesome and kept an Excel spreadsheet of everything that happened over the last few days. Highlights and lowlights to come.

In the meantime, here's a pic from Joe's phone to bide your time. He's perfect and we are so, so in love.
