We are pleased to announce the birth of....

Cecelia Irene Linkert

Born on March 8th, at 9:37PM.

9 lbs, 4 oz 22 inches long.

When we left home, Janet's contractions were about 2 minutes apart, and very intense, not giving her a break at all.

We got to the hospital about 9PM, and Janet couldn't even walk. We got her into a wheelchair, checked her into the birth center. The nurse took one look at her, announced her "complete" and pushed her bed down the delivery room. The moved Janet to another bed there. The doctor came in asking how far along Janet was in labor, the nurse said again she was complete, and asked Janet to push at her next contraction. When Janet pushed, the doctors and nurses practically claimed together that she was indeed "complete". Janet was told to to push again at the next contraction. Two contractions later, Cecelia entered the world. Janet and I were astonished how quickly it went!

Both Cecelia and Janet are doing very well. Cecelia seems to be nursing and sleeping well. We are all very happy!
