Baby time!

I write to you today from the labor and delivery department of the McKay Dee Hospital. And you know what that means! That's right, free access to Days of Our Lives and the Price is Right (long live Bob Barker)! But more significantly, it's time for Kate to make her debut. We checked in at 7:40 and got started on Pitocin at around 8:45. It's now 9:52, and we're starting to see some steady contractions on her monitor. Our doctor is in the hospital right now for a surgery he's doing this morning. He'll be coming into our room within the next hour to break Lydia's water. We anticipate we'll get to meet our little baby girl around 2 or 3 this afternoon.

Update: It's 10:06 and Lydia's water spontaneously ruptured! Hurray!

Stay tuned for more updates as things progress.

Thanks Denise! When Kate gets a little older maybe she and Gavin can get together and knock down some blocks or something. :)
