Our daughter Mila Grace was born last
Tuesday afternoon (Melbourne Cup Day!). Jasmina was induced beginning Monday night; Mila
was originally due on the 16th, but our obstetrician thought that as
she was already on the 95th percentile for weight, we should get
things going earlier. The labour went pretty smoothly through Tuesday
morning & early afternoon, and Mila loudly announced her arrival at
about 4:20. She was 3.8kg (8lb 6oz) and 52cm (20.5in) long.
We got home late on Thursday and had a pretty rough night, juggling
incompatible sleep schedules for both kids for the first time.
Jasmina’s mum arrived yesterday to help out and last night was better.
