Yours truly:


And Lala:


She’s currently 4cm dilated after 7 hours, which might seem like a long time to some, but considering I was a mere 3 centimeters after 16 HOURS ON PITOCIN, I’m thinking she’s moving along quite well.

WooHOOOO! Neato’s on the way!

Care to wager on when he’ll arrive? (FYI, she was induced on Pitocin at 9am CST today.)

    How exciting, Wito will have a little cousin and you can’t get any better than giving him the blog name Neato.

    Good luck to your sis and her labor. I am feeling optimistic and think that baby will be here before the end of the day–and expect a update when the moment arrives.

    Congrats! My first baby was induced and I was only in labor for 6 horus with him, the second was here in a a mere 3 hours. (she was in a hurry) Crazy I tell y’a!

    Good luck! I’m sure Neato will be here before the end of the day. How exciting!!!!

    How exciting!! Just for kicks, I think the next one should be called Speedo… (because I’m a dork like that).

    If her labor is anything like my induced-Pitocin-laced labor was (and I sincerely hope for her sake that it is NOT) then she will deliver her baby after approximately 60 hours in labor like I did.

    BUT! I too feel optimistic and I hope that her baby is here before Law and Order SVU starts tonight.

    Yeah for cousins! Congratulations, Lala and family! Auntie Whoorl does have a nice ring to it, indeed. Like Amy, I wish that one of my sisters would have a baby…although I’m hoping they’re married first. Have to admit, the title of this post scared me a (wee) bit before the picture loaded – I thought Wito was going to have two cousins!

    PS. I was a first baby (born at home) and I made it in a bit under four hours.
