Reagan Comes Home in a House on Wheels

Thursday, August 11th, 2005 at 8:37 pm

We brought Reagan home today. Kate was pretty excited to have some company in the back seat and was quick to accept her responsibility as the big sister to keep track of the Zinger.

A few minutes into the trip home, we asked Kate how the Zinger was doing. As she put it, “She’s fast asleep.”

Then a few minutes later, Kate reported that “she’s awake now and looking all over the place.”

When we were just about home, Reina asked Kate “what do you think she is thinking about Kate?”

Kate replied…

I think she’s thinking what the heck? Is this place a house on wheels?

Meet Reagan Grace

Reina was a trooper and the labor went smoothly. Reagan Grace was delivered naturally (with a little help from the oxytocin) at 12:52pm, Tuesday August 9, 2005 weighing 6lbs-9oz and measuring 20″. Here are some pictures, with more on the way.

Even the Cat is Nesting

We’ve confirmed our induction appointment at the hospital for Tues Morning 8/9. I guess it’s natural to be nervous about scheduling something that would otherwise happen on its own, but we are very confident that our decision is the right one to ease both Reina & Kate’s stress and Dr. O feels the same. In the mean time, Reina’s kicked into high gear the preparations on the nursery and has finally weened Fig out of the crib.

Baby in the Foot?

Monday, August 8th, 2005 at 3:21 am

Reina and Kate were discussing the anticipated arrival of her little sister when the topic of exactly how a baby is delivered came up. Reina explained as best she could how “…Dr. O will come to the hospital and help mommy push the baby down and out of her tummy.”

To this, Kate replied with a very challenging question.

But mommy,… how will they make sure you don’t push the baby all the way down your leg to your foot?

Cookie’s Comin!

Just learned today that the baby’s a little ahead of schedule and will likely not wait until the 8/21 due date. Dr. O is recommending a scheduled induction early next week if the baby isn’t delivered naturally before then. If we agree, then we have her commitment to follow through on the delivery before her planned vacation. Reina’s not too excited about getting one of her partners to deliver, so we are pretty much guaranteed to have the baby before the middle of next week! More details as they fall into place.
