My baby girl

Today is the first full day of my daughter’s life, pretty strange. No, not strange, surreal. We went to the hospital yesterday to be induced. Got there at 10 am and didn’t deliver until 11:38 PM.

She is a big girl, not as big as daddy, I was closer to 10 pounds, but I know one person who is very happy she is smaller. It was a very long day, as the father it is hard to wait all day because there is not a whole heck of a lot that you can do. And I am not one to sit still.

Following the delivery it took until just short of 3 am to get the girls into their room. At one point I had intended to spend the night with them, but there was a mini baby boom and there wasn’t any room for me. And just like that another woman had thrown me out on the street. ;).


So I drove home and relieved my inlaws of their babysitting chores and pittered around the house until 4 am at which time I called my mom and spoke to her (she is in NJ with my sis) for about 15 minutes and then managed to fall asleep.

Finally got up about 9 and spent more time puttering around while I watched my son sleep. They are so peaceful. Eventually got us together, made breakfast and then left for the hospital. Arrived there at noon and stayed until 7:30 and then returned home to resume babysitting detail. And now at 9:40 or so I am trying to decide what I want to eat for dinner as well as determine what chores have to be completed prior to the entrance of the her majesty tomorrow morning.

    I may reveal names, I may not. They both have such Sweetcheeks. 🙂

    There is nothing more peaceful than the sight of your sleeping child.

    The birth of a baby is truly a miracle. I can still remember how I felt the first time I laid eyes on my sons. It is something I will never forget, a memory stored deep within my heart.

    Enjoy all of these precious moments, because as you know , they last but an instant and then they’re gone.

    BTW.. are you going to keep us in suspense as to her name, or are you just going to call her “girl…LOL

    Again congratulations to you all.
