Like Daddy like Daughter

My baby picture (the one they took at the hospital when I was born) shows me with both of my arms strait up. We've caught Anna doing this a few times.

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with one of my arms above my head. Asleep. I hate it.

The First Day

Anna is 1 day old today. She is such a joy. What a cutie! I thought I knew what happiness was before Anna, but now I know.

We posted a few pictures on Julie's blog today:

Anna Beth Baldwin

Meet Anna. She was born C-section at 11:20 PM. She was 8 lbs 11 oz, 22 inches long, with a 37 cm head.

Both mom and baby are well.

Who YOU gunna call?

This is it. I'll post in a little while!

The Verdict.

Well, here's the news:

We haven't seen much progress for 15 hours, so we're turning to the more 'modern' approach. 'Modern' in that this approach came after the other approach.

We'll go in to have a C-section in about 10-15 minutes.

We're going to have a baby tonight!

Pray for us!

We're at the max

Our Oxytocin (Pitocin) intake is at the max now. This helps the contractions along. Julie is currently at a 2. The doctor said that we'll see what the Pitocin does for the next little while. If there is no change, we'll discuss a C-section.

Oh, the movie's good. Peter just woke up.

Oh, and we have found the inspiration behind ET's finger.

New Monitor

They gave Julie a new monitor that doesn't only say how often contractions are coming, but it shows how strong they are. She's at about 50 units.

Julie is also dialated to a 2.5. When the doctor comes I'll give another report.

The View

I think we got the best room in Labor & Delivery. Far from the nurse's office, at the end of the hall. The only noises we hear are coming from our own room. And the view is spectacular. Very peaceful.

So far we watched the second half of Around the World in 80 Days, Julie took a nice nap while I watched an episode of The Office, and then she beat me at Phase 10 by 100 points and 1 phase.

Stay tuned. I'll post again in a few hours.

The magic button

Just got the magic button installed. Nothing short of amazing! As you can see, the contractions are coming pretty regularly, and Julie's as cool as a cucumber.

Labor and Delivery

We're going into Labor and Delivery right now. They called us at 7:00 and told us to be there at 7:30. We were 15 minutes late, but what are they going to do, start without us?

Stay tuned for more baby news.

Lucky Stiff

Luke did very well. Very well indeed. No idea how he kept a strait dace for so long!

Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble

For our chili cookoff we were giving out prizes for rootbeer. I told her she looked like a witch. She cackled.

Broken Foot.

It's not that she can't wear a shoe that better matches the walking cast. It's that she WON'T.


Sometimes you just need a stool.

The chair won.

How did Nathan get onto the floor, you ask? He got in a fight with two chairs. They won.

What are you going to be for Halloween?

.because Hale Centre Theatre has costumes for rent. In case you can't tell, this is three tiers of costumes. They've got probably 4 or 5 rows of these. The possibilities are endless.
