On the day Elora turns another month older, I look at the time and think of what was happening at that very moment on her birth day. She was born at 8:44am, on Sunday the 25th of October after 72 hours of sporadic hard contractions followed by 30 hours of labor (anyone else amazed at what their bodies can do?!). When she was finally born I felt total surprise. Yeah, I knew I was having a baby, but after so long, it didn't really seem real. She really was in there, she was Elora all along. I'm so glad she joined us 9 months ago at this very moment!
