I am blogging from Progress West. At 9:00pm last night Kathy’s water broke. Granny & I took Kathy to the hospital. Kathy was in a lot of pain until she got the epideral, but the staff here has been amazing. The night really flew by. They quickly put us on Pitocin to induce labor. The contractions prior to the epideral and the epideral itself were quite painful, but we were able to nap for a little over an hour. The epideral is being dialed back and we should be ready for the main event soon!
My mom has some great friends. They threw Carter a beautiful baby shower. Thank you seems somewhat inadequate, but I hope they know how much it is appreciated. Special thanks to Cindy, Phyllis, and Diane for organizing… Carter appreciates it! Pictures are up here
My parents came up for a very nice visit on Labor Day weekend. They helped us with some projects around the house, took us to the dog park, took out a kayak, watched me sail, and supported me in my triathlon efforts. My dad’s pictures are up here
Well, in preparation for Carter I have been scraping ceilings and burying myself in spackle dust. No son of mine will have a popcorn ceiling in their bedroom! The room is all primed, ready for paint on the ceiling, maybe another primer coat on the walls. These walls were very beat-up and it took awhile to smooth them out also. I now have the blog and will keep mentioning home improvements here. Older stuff can still be found in my website archive.
Well, we are officially having a boy! Pictures are here. He looks to be healthy and on time for his November 6th arrival. Enjoy!
