From the time we arrived at the hospital to when Sarah entered this world it was less than an hour and with no pain killers of any kind it was a very easy birth. As the doctor went to cut the umbilical cord I made him stop. I informed him that I had cut the umbilical cord on all of my other kids and it was only right that I do it for this last one as well. Cutting the umbilical cord is a very weird experience. It is big and rubbery and not easily cut. It also seems like you must be hurting someone as well but neither the mother nor the child cries so I guess they're fine.
Sarah's birth seems to have been a foreshadowing of how she would live her life. She is the kindest, sweetest, cuddliest and most obedient child you could ask for. I can't even imagine life without her. I'm so glad that we decided to go for number six after all.
--------------------trivia--------------------Scientist have now determined that warp travel (as in the Star Ship Enterprise) to other stars is actually physically possible. At least according to string theory. Unfortunately, the energy required to just start the warp drive (not even considering the energy required to travel anywhere) far exceeds all of the energy that exists on earth. I guess I'm not going to other stars any time soon.
