Big Sister Norah was there for the delivery and is fascinated with her brother.
We were able to go home Tuesday, just shy of 24hrs later.

The short story:
Monday started with some mild contractions every 10-15mins. I called George home from work around 1pm, just in case something happened. About 4pm we went over to Hood River since George had an appointment. We had made plans to tour the birth center after his appointment. By 5pm my contractions were getting pretty painful and about every 4mins. Instead of touring we decided it would be better to just check into the hospital! We signed in at 5:30 and went back to a room so they could check my progress, I was already at 8cm! The doctor got there with a few minutes to spare and Owen was born very quickly at 6:02pm. Thankfully there were no complications or stitches needed.
We were able to go home Tuesday evening and everyone is doing very well.
