Baby on board!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 21, 2015, 7:04 PM
hello everybody, we are back from the hospital with a tiny baby in tow. it was a pretty intense,scary,exciting and awesome last few days. my wife had a pretty long labor and by the end some critical problems emerged.my wife was really tired(over 20 hours of labor) and my baby's heart beat keep dropping to dangerous levels(after we found out her cord was around her neck and she had got stuck) SO in the wee hours of the morning  my wife had to have a emergency c section to make sure both my wife and daughter would be safe. our doctor was amazing and both my wife and daughter made it through the ordeal.
On July 18 at 6:08 am and weighing in at a tiny 6.8 pounds, Annabel was born. to go from such fear to such excitement was pretty incredible. because my wife was still in surgery, i got to be the first to hold her which was pretty special. we are back home now and both are doing great. ill have my hands full and my model production will slow down but don't worry i have a couple builds on my bench and any free time(little as it will be) will of course be put to good use.
Thank you to everyone for all the warm wishes!  that meant the world to me.

I BIG Congratulations to you, your family, and your new little one!! :D I very much understand where you are coming from in the model building department. Yes, building does continue, but it slows a whole lot, but the family time is great and important. My 9 and 5 year old daughters are wonderful, but do greatly need and want my time. Take care and enjoy your family. :D

Wow! Ok.... it really has been too long since I've visited your DA site here! I hope you will accept my deepest apologies. I hope too you will accept my congratulations to you and your wife with the birth of your new baby daughter. That is a VERY big deal!!! You did have some rough times there with your baby and your wife but, I'm very glad and relieved to hear they are both doing fine. Whew! :D Now that it's several months later, I'm sure your schedule is quite occupied with your littlest one and the rest of your family. Good, but busy times to be sure. I've been here myself seemingly not too long ago (my 2 daughters are now 5 and 8). I wish you all the best to be sure and a very Merry Christmas to all of you! :D

My daughter came down with Asthma when she was 5 months old.  They put her on a daily drug, 3 times a day,  that was one carbon bond off from Caffeine.
She would sleep only a few hours at a time and would be up for several after the nap. She did this for close to 2 years.  I remember many nights sitting holding
her watching HBO at 2 or 3 am.  That was many years ago and thank God she grew out of it on her own.  :squee:
