weekly 'what's up'

we had a baby yesterday.  and some other stuff happened this week.  mostly, though, the distinguishing news this week was that we had a baby yesterday.

long story short, i woke up at 4:30 in the morning with contractions, and labored through the morning at home.  there was a moment in which i found myself crying and eating fast food in the bathtub.  that was not the most shining moment of the day.  but really, labor went pretty smoothly.  we got to the hospital about 2:30, where they told me i was dilated to 7-8, so it was just a matter of waiting it out.  i got an epidural (i hadn't known if i would opt for it or not), and had her at 6:07 p.m.  really smooth!

enough small talk.  let's get down to business:






 
 






now to just decide with certainty on a name... (oh, didn't i tell you we've started waffling again?  we're no good at this process.)

You are gorgeous, Paige (of course, your baby is beautiful, too :), and I am going to laugh for a good while about crying and eating fast food in the bathtub!!!

Can't wait to hear the name. My son, Jeff, has Michael on his original birth certificate that's crossed out with Jeffrey in its place!
