bath time

question: what's cuter than screaming naked babies in the bath?
answer: nothing.

Our friends Matt and Alitha came by to meet Dottie, and celebrate over Indian food this evening. We'll see how the baby likes spicy food...

Dottie is spending the day cheering for the Packers. Thanks to Aunt Stephanie and Uncle Paul for helping her embrace her heritage with a very cheesy gift. Go Pack Go!

Meet Dottie...

Dorothy Mae Murphy Mortimore was born this morning at 6:06. At 9 lb. 1 oz. and 21", she gave us a little fright, when she refused to be pushed out. After a grueling 24 hours of labor, Dottie joined us via c-section. As you can see, mom and baby are happy and healthy.

Almost there....

1:15 AM - Mara has made it to 9 cm! Tired, but smiling. 1 more hour until she starts pushing....

We're getting close!

Mara's water just broke - should be sometime tonight! Mara says: "It's not as fun as that picture makes it look," but she and baby are happy and healthy. Wish us luck!

still nothin'

two days past the due date and still nothing! i am thinking this little munchkin is going to make a pretty late entrance into this world but who knows, it could happen at any moment, right? chuck's co-workers threw him a surprise shower at work yesterday which was as sweet as can be. one of his gifts was this pair of cute as can be pink vans.... like father like daughter.
