Parental Leave

May 04, 2007 at 03:56 PM | categories: General | View Comments

Amara is proving to be a demanding child and with no other support people to help Kate I have decided to go on parental leave. My last work day before that happens is May 11.

I had a raid failure on Monday which prompted me to take the site down for a couple of days and subsequently move it to a hosting company. I don't think there is any loss of data, but it will probably be a few days until I get all of the pictures back up.

Home from the hospital

February 21, 2007 at 10:02 AM | categories: Amara, General | View Comments

We got home from the hospital around noon yesterday. This is the first moment I have had to be able to collect my thoughts enough to post. I added two more pictures to the photo gallery and posted 2 new videos here and here.

Time to go try and get a little sleep, or maybe eat something.

Update 2007-02-23: Videos moved to YouTube to save me the cost of bandwidth and make downloads faster for you.

Amara Watch 2007

For those of you looking for blow by blows about how mom, dad and baby are doing, everyone is great. Baby is feeding, pooping, sleeping and generally being to cute for words, without any problem (the nurses all can't get enough of her). Amara was delivered by C-section, so, as you can imagine, this physically very hard on Kate. She has already been up a couple of times though walking is very painful. Kate is hanlding Amara like a pro. She still needs lots of help from me since she is not very mobile, but I think we might be taking to this parenting thing - just call me diaper and swaddle man :).

For the moment we are working hard to sleep as much as possible, while keeping Amara fed, changed and happy. We are all really looking forward to coming home from the hospital where it will be much quieter and easier to handle the sleeping thing.

I have to get back to my ladies. Some time today I will hopefully get to take more pictures, which I will post as soon as I can.
