Pictures

I pulled these photos out of my flickr account.  I need to pay to get a yearly subscription though, as I’ve used up half my alloted amount already.

Dylan Aubrey Closs, with Dad.  Less than one full day old.

Dylan in the hospital bassinet, with Mom’s hand.

Dylan at home, with her blankies.  Sam thought she looked like she was praying, so I snapped a couple of pictures of her like this while she was in her moses basket.

Baby Dylan with Auntie Jen. (I love that bambi blanket. Shhh!)

The earliest picture ever of her.  This is right after delivery on mommy’s chest, still cord attached.  At this point the Dr. was attaching the clamps and whatnot in preperation for me to cut the cord, which I did.  Didn’t know if I would be able to – but it wasn’t so difficult.  The hard part was stopping the waterworks while I did it. ;)

More posts to come with details about the whole adventure, and how things are going now.  For now, the quick update is that Ivy is doing good as a big sister, we’re settling in fine, and Dylan is super cute.  We’re very, very happy.  And we need sleepers with mittens built in! ;)

Labour Update

Just got a call from Jeff…

Sam is 3cm dialated and her contractions are 5 min. apart.

They are going out for lunch, and then heading back to the hospital to have the baby! I’m so excited!

Now the question is… Boy or Girl??

baby mickey-n-minnie

I’ll post more when I hear from Jeff again.

Cheers,

Updates

I added Erin from evilclomid.com to our blog as a contributer.  She should be able to login and post an update if need be.  You can phone me Erin if you like, or I can phone you once things get moving and we know it’s not false labor.

I hope you don’t mind that I just imposed  on you by selecting you to be our update person. ;)

Contractions!

Sam’s been having contractions since about 3am.  They’re still about 20 mins apart, but regular.  We’re planning that we might have to go to the hospital today.

I’ll update here and by phone when I get the chance – if I can’t get to here I’ll phone Erin and give her my password so she can update.
