I know everyone has been waiting with baited breath (and what exactly is baited breath? What does one possibly bait breath with? Oxygen?) for an update from Christina and Cordy’s little sister.
Well, the bad news is that we discovered the flaw in using zombies as an induction method. Zombies shamble. They take a long time to get where they’re going. And so did this pregnancy. Christina went into labor at about 7:00 p.m. on Saturday night, and it wasn’t until 4:00 p.m. on Sunday that little Miranda was brought into this world.
Miranda was 8 lbs. 6.9 oz. at birth, and 21.5″ in length, just beating out her older sister in both dimensions. (Cordy was 8 lbs 4 oz and 20.5″ in length). Cordy does, however, retain the title of “child with the biggest noggin around”. Miranda also decided to split the differences in the gene pool with her older sister, and inherited my hair and skin tone, instead of Christina’s.
Christina did need to have an epidural, but not until 12 hours of labor. However, this enabled Christina to successfully have a VBAC.
She’ll have more to tell everyone in a day or two, once we get back from the hospital. We just wanted to get a quick update out there.
