Baby Deuce #4

And we’re over the major hurdle in labor.  Looks like it’s going to be all in a days work: started at 8, and projected time of arrival is around 5.

This has been pretty much the exact same experience as we had with Gus the Bus, except we were watching episodes of 24.  Maybe that’s why GTB came out so tough…what does that mean for Deuce?

Baby Deuce #3

Things are speeding up! OTown was a champ with the epidural, and now we’re pretty much completely chilling out, waiting for more contractions and The Deuce to get himself ready to go.

Time for an episode of Lost before we start pushing…

Being Promoted

Later today, GTB will be promoted to general…or big brother if you prefer a more benign title.  Yesterday, however, was his last day as an only child, and OTown saw it as her chance to spoil her favorite Bus rotten.  We had a day of fun together, anticipating the arrival of the Deuce, and thankful to have some time just the two of us!

And to top the night off, Grandpa Mahlon and Grandma Buzzy arrived from Kansas City!  GTB is so excited to be a big brother.  He’s been telling us for months that he wants to hold Baby Deuce, hug him, play bubbles with him, sit in the back seat of the car with him, and fight him 🙂  We can’t wait for him to be a big brother!

Baby Deuce #2

Everything is looking good so far!  The Pitocin drip has started, which means labor will be kicking off soon (she’s feeling a few small contractions now…).  I’m not sure OTown will continue blogging when labor hits, but here’s what she’s up to now 🙂

With the upcoming (quickly upcoming) birth of Deuce the Caboose, I realized I had failed to blog about any of the fun things we did during the month of May.  Since there’s not much else to do while you’re stuck in a hospital room in labor, I figured I’d fill everyone in!

Free Breakfast at Chick Fil A for a full week!  We went three times 🙂

Enjoyed celebrating our 5 year anniversary!  Our friends Scott and Chelsea watched GTB for the night…we went to a fancy dinner and then spent the next day going to breakfast at Flip Happy, kayaking on Town Lake, and laying out at Barton Springs.

And finally, this past weekend we had the chance to watch our friends Travis and Liz get married! We were hoping the baby would hold off until after this wedding, and luckily he did!
