Labor pains started not too long after Liz's appointment with her doctor on Thursday (2pm). Lasted until mid-night Thursday then died down. She awoke me at 3:30am with some more intense ones, and we were off to the hospital at 4:30am.
After some labtests the doctors decided "well, she's 4-and-a-half, 80%, a week overdue... let's do this"
Water broken shortly after 10am, epidural shortly after that (at my insistence, lol), and the real pushing came on around 5pm...
and at 6:12pm, this little bundle of joy appeared:

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,
is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.
And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!
When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.
And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

It's a hell of a rush isn't it???
It's been almost 16 years since my daughter was born, but I still remember well that feeling when I first held her...nothing compares to it, and unless you've been through it, you cannot really understand it...
My step-sister went into labor late last night as well...not sure if she had the baby yet or not (I'm at work and haven't talked to anyone yet today)...
We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies.

Congrats to Liz as well! Was she screaming that she hated you and stuff during labor pains? I always get a kick when I hear stuff like that like on movies and shows.

"He sits next to Steve in that locker room for a reason -- because we wanted him to internalize some of those things. Steve was able to will this organization to unbelievable years with the three Stanley Cups, and now it's up to someone else. Z has that kind of will and that work ethic and that passion to be the best. It's going to be his time." -- Coach Mike Babcock
