So it turns out that I was wrong. Our Baby Girl did not show up two weeks late and did not weigh 14 pounds. I did not have a 30 hour + labor. I was not induced. My pregnancy did not end in an emergency c-section (thank God).
But it did end with this:
Our daughter, Emery "Emme" Jane, was born on August 1 at 5:54pm. The doctor was right, at 8 pounds, 4 ounces and 21 inches, she was/is not a small baby.
We're struggling with all of the normal new parent stuff: dealing with a lack of sleep, figuring out why she's crying, attempting to feel normal, figuring out breastfeeding, etc., but it would be impossible not to love that little face.
More to come...
