It's been a whole year plus since I last published anything on this blog. A LOT has happened in that time, namely Ju and I have had our second child (Kai) and he is doing great, however for those of you who have read our blog in the past, you'll know that the birth with Alaise did not go so well, and indeed we had a very similar experience this time.
October 22, 2009 my first born, a daughter, entered this world. Alaise Noelle Vanderwater was greeted by her parents and grand parents (on both sides). She's a big baby, 20 inches, with a 14+ inch head, 8 lbs 13 ounces. Ju's labor went pretty well. The epidural did wonders for her. The delivery, on the other hand, was quite difficult, and the size of the baby required the doctor to make a bit of room for her to come down the canal via an episiotomy.
