Carter Lange Benedict

We are officially proud parents of a healthy baby boy. Officially born at 10:49am CST, 11/9/2008. He was born weighting 8 pounds and 15 ounces, and is 21 inches long. Great news is that he is healthy and already taking to breast-feeding. Thanks for all the support of your family and friends!

Carter is on his way

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!

Work on the Nursery



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.
