7:15 pm - Jen (that's my wife's name - I've referred to her as Mrs. Piggy up until today) is laying in the full bath tub. I'm sitting on the toilet next to her. Candle lit. Contractions are coming less than 4 minutes apart and lasting 40 seconds or so. We've called the midwife and she told Jen to take a bath. So ... we'll see.
Anna's downstairs making cookies with her aunt, who's living with us for the time being. The cookies are for my 30th birthday, which is tomorrow! Anna's already started singing happy birthday to me and Liam.
My brother and his wife's son was born today in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Babies all around!
8:07 - We're off to the hospital!
9:29 - We're at the hospital! She's at 8 cm and we're going to have this baby tonight!!! Probably before midnight!!!
10:09 - Welcome baby Liam! Born at 9:46. 8 and 9 on the APGAR, great! Had a little miconium (sp?), but coughed it out and got it sucked out. Had a healthy cry and is now calm on Jen's chest.
12:05 - I'm 30 years old and Liam's asleep in my arms. This is the best birthday present money can't buy.
12:43 - couple photos:
Anna and I were playing Scrabble yesterday. She wanted to spell her name and it kept going from there:
7:13 - Liam's sleeping by himself right now with his hands up by his face. It's awesome. He breast fed really great last night and slept most of the night. He only woke up when the nurses came in to wake him up. Mom and Dad got significantly less sleep, of course. In fact, if I had to wager a guess, I'd say that I got none. None sleep. That sounds about right.
