Labor (Daniel's Version)

Christa talking to her mother in between contractions

Yesterday, at 3 a.m. (Wednesday), Christa started to have some heavy contractions. When the time came, I went to work just like I usually do. I was in the middle of a meeting when Christa called and said that her contractions had not subsided, and that she talked to her Mom who told her that I needed to come home. I then called the midwife, who said to go to the hospital. We were at the hospital from 10 a.m. - 2p.m., at which time they sent us home to labor there (easier for Christa).

Christa and I did some walking. We even played a little putt putt at our apartment complex. We ate some dinner, watched a movie, and then headed off to bed. Until, I was brutally awaken at 3 am by Christa screaming my name from the bathroom. I found her in the bath tub, and in alot of pain. We are currently at the hospital and doing great! Contractions are doing their thing, and my hand is starting to hurt from her squeezing it! Will keep you updated!

A Moment In Life

I know it is a day early, but we will be busy tomorrow, so I wanted to wish Tiffany, a wonderful and joyful birthday!

Tiffany has been the sister that you would wish for. A wonderful cook, a great seamstress, a close companion, and a dear friend. I treasure every moment that we have spent together. May God bless you Tiffany and I love you!

Getting Ready For Baby!

We have been busy with cleaning out closets, bedrooms, and the kitchen. Now that they are all done, I spent time yesterday washing and getting Joshua's things ready for his arrival! Here are some pictures! The last picture is of me for everyone who keeps emailing me and asking for a picture of what I look like at nine months!
