Announcing my daughter's birth

I was six days overdue when I finally started having real labor contractions at 2 AM on Thursday morning. My daughter was born 19 hours later. Everything went very well except for my rather dramatic tear. We came home on Saturday, October 5, and we were very happy to have so much family come to visit and help out.
