Ruby says hi:
She’s sleeping on my arm right now.
It was a long labor, but Joanne made it through without needing any medication, and they’re both doing well. Now if we could just get some decent sleep…
We had a doctor’s appointment this morning, which involved our first ultrasound. We’ve been trying to avoid as much of the medical birth industry as we can, and do things as naturally as possible (see the Bradley Method), but we decided to do an ultrasound anyway, and I must admit that it was pretty fascinating to see it moving around in there. It looks like it’s probably going to be a girl. yay!
I also stumbled upon a ticket for today’s playoff game between Minnesota and Oakland. My boss had a couple tickets but his friend got sick so he had an extra, which meant a half day off of work for a baseball game. Unfortunately, the Twins lost the game, but I still got my first taste of live playoff baseball, which was a blast (though the sheer volume of the noise in the dome left me with a bit headache).
Good days. I love ’em.
