A hearty 'Good Morning!' from the new Poppa! I've got a brief moment as I'm home from the hospital before I head back. smile.gif

Labor pains started not too long after Liz's appointment with her doctor on Thursday (2pm). Lasted until mid-night Thursday then died down. She awoke me at 3:30am with some more intense ones, and we were off to the hospital at 4:30am.

After some labtests the doctors decided "well, she's 4-and-a-half, 80%, a week overdue... let's do this" smile.gif

Water broken shortly after 10am, epidural shortly after that (at my insistence, lol), and the real pushing came on around 5pm...

and at 6:12pm, this little bundle of joy appeared:

It's a hell of a rush isn't it???

It's been almost 16 years since my daughter was born, but I still remember well that feeling when I first held her...nothing compares to it, and unless you've been through it, you cannot really understand it...

My step-sister went into labor late last night as well...not sure if she had the baby yet or not (I'm at work and haven't talked to anyone yet today)...
As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy
We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies.

It seems like these people were really intuitive and knew that you were having a child Matt! Here's some advice on raising kids from MSN, and differences seen between boys and girls as toddlers. http://family.msn.co...ffer=2&GT1=6466

Congrats to Liz as well! Was she screaming that she hated you and stuff during labor pains? I always get a kick when I hear stuff like that like on movies and shows. laugh.gif

Awwwwww. Just aawwwwwwwww. Can't wait to see her in her first Red Wings outfit.
If you value your life and/or your sanity, take good care of Mommy. She's going to be beat.

Nothing but the best for all of you!!

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
