For those of you who have no heard, Peas was welcomed into the world February 12, 2008 at 12:17 am.

She had a dramatic entry to the world, in her own time and way...yep another one of those kids.

I would like to express my gratitude to the many amazing nurses who cared for us during our numerous hospital stays. I like personable nurses. People who will chat with you and get to know you. It levels the playing field. They are seeing you in am incredibly vulnerable position. Knowing them as a person instead of the person who floats into and out of the room makes you feel a little more human and a little less terrified of everything that is happening around you.

90% of the nurses I have had have been like that. They have been great. People whom I genuinely liked and even cared about. However, the one nurse who we had during the shift that I had the hardest labor with was not my favorite. I tried engaging her and tried getting her to talk....nothing. Grrr. Very frustrating. Maybe she was having a bad day.

My amazing neighbor/doula/friend was there and helped us get a new nurse, one who we had the night before actually....and she was great. She and the other nurse actually ended up delivering the baby.

A good nurse does make all the difference! :) We are so thankful for Zoe's safe arrival. Sorry I didn't make it to see you the other day. I can't wait to hear the whole story and to meet your new princess!
