All things considered, things have been going pretty well at home.  Em is exhausted beyond belief, but it is doing an incredible job of new-mothering.  I’m very proud of her.

Eloise (I’ve taken to calling her ‘Weezy’), is being a fairly-typical five day old: fidgety, hungry, and weepy.    She’s got some elevated jaundice numbers that we have to mind pretty closely, but not high enough to warrant any light therapy or anything.  We’ll be bringing her into the doctor shortly to double check.

And here’s a few more pics from the past day or two:

I’m not adamant on turning this into a baby-only blog.  And while I love my new daughter, and she’s going to be a healthy obsession of mine for the time-being.

That being what it is, I would like to echo what NTodd said.  The abortion is icky/scary vagina crowd showed themselves on Saturday.  This is far from a done deal, and it is up to all of us that it never is.

And now, more Eloise:

We certainly love her so.

For now, I suppose…

Depending on which professional you ask, our baby is anywhere from 6 to 12 days past the date they expected her to arrive.  What does that mean?  Well, not much really…save eating away at my stomach and nervous system.

Obviously, there’s my wife; who’s comfort levels have been stretched beyond anything I certainly could handle.  She’s been terrific (not that I didn’t think she couldn’t be) and is being far more patient than yours truly.

As for what’s going to happen?  Well, inducement is (tentatively) scheduled for this coming Monday.  It was scheduled for Friday, but it was decided that if there was no harm in seeing if she could deliver naturally over the weekend, then we could put it off.

So here we are…another lazy weekend that may or may not produce a wee one.  I’ll keep you posted.
