Miricle. . .

At 11:33 am yesterday (October 26, 2007) we welcome our little man into the the world.

At 3:30 this morning my wife's water broke, we got to the the hospital (St. Joseph's) an hour later, they started giving her pitocin at 7:00, the contractions started getting bad about 10:00, the epidural went in at 10:45, and the baby emerged at 11:33. (Yes I know the time on the above image is wrong).

We slept, poorly, but we slept last night. Any pregnant person reading this. . . let the nurses tkae him. If you're nursing they'll bring him in when he needs to eat. You may be uncomfortable on that fold-out chair guys, but you get to sleep soon enough. Ask a nurse if they have a fold out cot instead. I got one this morning to use tonight.

We don't have an internet connection in the hospital like I thought we would so I'm sorry this took so long to post, I'm only home to shower now. Mom and baby are doing good. Hopefully I'll be back in time for his birthday. . . I promised I'd be back in time for the next feeding at 11. So gotta go. I'll post more soon, but here he is. . .

Congrats to you and your wife. He is adorable. I can't believe how fast her delivery was. I agree get all the help you can while in the hospital. I hope you continue to keep up your blog. We would love to see how your little man grows up and watch him thru all those exciting milestones. Again congrats to mommy and daddy. Now the real fun begins.

Another miracle of nature. How a none-month period produces a new human person I'll never wrap my mind around. Congratulations to you both!
