Here We Go

We are getting ready to leave for the hospital for my testing. Judging by the fact that we spent a decent amount of time preparing for the induction and packing the hospital bags in the car, I’m pretty sure I WON’T be induced today. I’ll keep you posted.

    Can’t wait to hear what happens. And isn’t that the way it usually works? THe more prepared you are the less likely it is to happen.

    Hi, all. I talked to D around 8:30. Everyone is doing well, but she is only 3 cm so it looks like it will be morning before whoorlito makes his grand entrance.

    Hi, all. I just talked to whoorl and am extremely happy to announce the arrival of whoorlito, more formally known as Anders Smith. Long and lean like his daddy, he is 6 lbs, 11 oz and 20.5 inches long and has a thick head of dark hair (no doubt, expertly coiffed, again like his daddy). The little guy is a little tired from 22 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing and is getting some special attention from the doctors, but all is expected to be fine. Mom and dad, although exhausted, sound great. Whoorl wanted me to say thanks to all of you for your good wishes and your support. I will provide additional updates as soon as I hear from them again.

  • Becky

    August 4, 2006 at 1:25 pm

  • Meepers

    August 5, 2006 at 1:39 pm

    Anders! I LOVE IT! That was the last name of a guy I dated briefly in high school, and the guy modeled…so I’m sure little Mr. will be as darling as his mum.

    Rest up, we, your faithful readers, wait with bated breath for the full birth story and PICTURES!
