Our daughter Lydia arrived in an unexpected way (surprise!) When we arrived at the hopsital for the scheduled c-section – a bit disappointed – we learned that Eleanor was far enough along that they could induce labor after all. (We thought that was impossible because she had had a previous c-section.) Sixteen and a half hours later, the baby was born.
She’s a great kid, and I look forward to getting to know her better. I definitely have a lot of lessons to learn as the father of a daughter. (She didn’t come with a manual.)
