New nephew is here!

Simon DiGiulio Evans was born today by C-section, checking in at around 7.3 lbs and 21 inches. Hopefully Andy and Anne will send us some pictures soon!

Ally is still in the oven. We had a doctor's appointment today, and I am about 2 cm dilated and about 50% effaced, so things are moving in the right direction. We did go ahead and schedule an induction for May 3rd, which is 1 week past my due date, just in case she does not come on her own. Ben and I are hoping that labor will start on it's own though, so that we can spend some of the time at home before heading to the hospital. Plus, I have heard that Pitocin-induced contractions can be stronger than regularly-occurring ones. Oh well, I guess we'll know soon enough!
