I got home at 4:00 a.m. from a long labor that ended with a beautiful birth and a healthy baby. This was my second opportunity to shadow Kristen Downer and learn from her decade of experience. She was really great at handling a nervous mom. and functioning on no sleep!
It was pretty cool that this baby came when she did; the barometric pressure had just made a major shift and it really feels like autumn here in central Texas. The first day of autumn doesn't usually bring such a dramatic change in weather! But it is so pleasant and it made for a beautiful birth day.
I got four hours of sleep and now am feeling refreshed for a day at my "real job." :)
