Life at home…

In lieu of writing (which I don’t really have time for at the moment), here are a couple of pictures of E getting used to life in her new home.

And sleeping….

We’re home…

We were released from the hospital today around 3:30 in the afternoon. We’re trying to get ourselves sorted out and settled into a routine. L & E are both doing well.

I have to get back to at least some work duties tomorrow. It’s a very busy time for me professionally. Fortunately, my mother will be coming over to help out during the day. I also have my follow-up ‘procedure’ at the dermatologist tomorrow for my mildly-to-moderately abnormal nevis (mole).

I’m really tired. I’ll try to post more tomorrow and in the following days (the birth story, me as “Mr. Mom,” additional pictures, and my reaction to it all).

Again, thanks to everyone for the well wishes and congratulations! I’ll try to respond personally soon. I promise. I just have my hands full now. :-)

All is well in Fatherland…

Well, it’s been a busy 46 hours or so since E was born. And, I have much to relate. It’s been a happy, exciting, stressful, emotional, overwhelming, joyful, and thankful time — which I think covers about the first 15 minutes of her life! :-)

Anyway, I’m too tired to write in detail now, but I have kept careful notes on my iPhone that I’ll transcribe and post.

I always figured I’d be a “modern father” type. Indeed, I don’t really “get” men who aren’t actively involved in the care of the children (including the feeding and bathing). But, since L has been recovering from her surgery, I’ve really had to step up. I think I’ve done pretty well so far as a rookie.

Heck, I’m practically a breast by now. :-)

More to follow. Thanks for all of the good wishes and congratulations!

For tonight, I’ll leave you with a photo of my girls…

Emerson’s first photos

Here is her first ‘official’ portrait: :-)

And, for those of you not easily grossed out… some awesome (if I say so myself) photos of her C-section birth.

More to follow later… along with the “rest of the story.”

Emerson is here!

I’ll fill you all in on the details later, but I’m pleased to announce that Emerson was born at 12:52 this morning via c-section. I’ll also post some pictures later this morning. It’s now 4ish and we’re all a bit tired. But, I won’t to post this quick update via the iPhone.
