9.5 cm and counting

Missy is moving along faster than average. She went from 4 cm to 9.5 cm in the last two hours. This baby doesn't want to wait until sunrise.

The real pushing begins within the hour. For now, Missy is just resting. Thanks to the epidural she is pretty relaxed and feels pressure but no pain. I'm wide awake now. I have a slight headache, but I think I'll pull through for those concerned about dad. Hey I'm doing this all natural people (no advil).

If anyone is actually reading this right now, please prove your commitment with a time stamped comment.

Cas and Missy,
Can't say I read this at 2am but I am so excited for you guys...can't wait to hear the news....that is if Cas's headache went away or not, of course!

Really, can't wait to see pics of the little one. I've been following your blog closely these past couple weeks anxious as well for your new arrival.

Prayers to you all,
Marla (Sharis' sister)

Thursday morning routine, 6 AM, wake up, then check Cas and Missy's blog. We are very excited to see the little one. Tom, as you know, wants to treat it to a Mission burrito very soon.

Cas, good work on the whole natural thing, we knew you could do it!

Cas & Missy,

This is great news, I pray by now you are both basking in the joy of your new healthy baby.
God bless all of you; enjoy this great miracle!

I've been checking your blog daily since the birth of my grandson, Ryan Sherman Cooley, on July 19th.

Wishing you all the best from Cleveland, OH,

It's getting close! What's the new Schneller baby going to be? A Bellermaine Belle or a St. Mary's Bell.
