Melissa went into labor yesterday, three days before her 30th birthday, about 10 days prior to her due date. We went to the hospital mid-afternoon. At 1:19 AM this morning (August 12, 2009) William Miles "Fig" Raguet-Schofield came into this world, waterlogged and tender. Melissa and William are both doing fine.
I am utterly exhausted after merely assisting with a day-long labor. I can't even imagine how Melissa must feel. She's one tough cookie. I can only assume the boy will be just as tough.
