welcome to the world, baby girl!

Sophia Marie Frances was born on October 4, 2006.
She was induced because my doctor was worried that she was no longer thriving in the womb. Gino and I said a prayer to St. Francis of Assisi, as it was his feast day, and asked for his prayers for a healthy baby, speedy and healthy labor and delivery. She was born less than 5 hours after being induced!! Amazing!! She is beautiful and kissable and sweet smelling. Most days you will find me nursing her, kissing on any one of the kids... (I'm very affectionate/emotional these days)... or sleeping. Not much gets done around here, but that's okay!

39 weeks

Here I am! It is almost time... I have had contractions or, rather, good ol' false labor consistently for the last 2 days. Hopefully, it won't be long before we get to lay eyes on this sweet girl.

Thank you for all your prayers for a smooth labor and delivery and, most importantly, HEALTHY baby!!

God bless!
