Meet Lucia Merritt Armijo

Meet Lucy! We had a rather busy day yesterday. And I thought I had
three weeks to go. She hit the full term mark of 37 weeks and got
things going as soon as possible at 5 am.

She arrived at 6:35 pm weighing in at 6 pounds 6 ounces and 19 inches.

She was almost a natural birth by total accident. But after three
hours of pushing, I finally got the epidural I begged for. She came
out face up. It was quite a traumatic experience. But some how she
managed to arrive without a c-section, even though I was drugged and
the attendings were ready to roll me down the hall.

I've got plenty of drugs now. Well, not exactly enough. But other than
that, we are great.


  1. Hi Caroline and Enrique,

    I happened to be thinking about you today (quite random!) and decided to check out Caroline's blog. What a lovely surprise! I hope all three of you (but especially Caroline and Lucia) are doing well. Welcome to parenthood -- it is a wonderful journey. Let me know if you need anything.
