This particular parental rite of passage was inevitable.
Total damage: 1 diaper, 14 wipes, 3 q-tips (it was in her bellybutton!), and two paper towels; plus a onesie, a sleepsack, and her fluffy blanket all straight to the washing machine.
There was no warning.
Baby and Mommy are still doing very well. The doctor is saying that they should be able to go home on Friday, possibly even on Thurs. if everything is looking good.
Mommy and Daddy are starting to figure out how much sleep they are going to miss. Emma needs to be fed every 2-3 hours, so that does not leave much time inbetween for sleeping. :-S
Thank you to everyone that has visited, and left comments for us. We really appreciate all the support you guys give us!
Emma decided that she wanted to come a little early! Emma was born last night at 10:11pm. Baby and mommy are doing very well.

5 Pounds 1 ounce
This year, we were the chef(s), the bun, and the oven. Punny, eh? The timer on the oven reads “78 Days Left.”
How could I pass up the pregnant-at-Halloween opportunity?
Our first Trunk or Treat was a great success. The ward had a great turnout, and we got several nice compliments on our costumes and decorations. The balloon pumpkins were super quick and easy to set up; the dry ice was popular (and surprisingly cheap). The white balloon in the upper left was a ghost: he’s got a scary face, but the balloon kept turning. All the balloons have glowsticks in them, but it was too light outside (even after dark), to see them very well. Next year will be even better.
First, the 2D images: a nice profile, and her sweet smiling face.
With the 3D images, the tech explained that the technology isn’t perfect: so things may seem a little distorted, when in reality the baby is just fine–the video shows a perfect baby girl. Her left hand is in front of her face, her thumb in front of her chin. The cord is front of her left forehead. The dark patch on her head isn’t hair–it’s just a ultrasound shadow.
