Why hello there

Well it has been a long week. I was induced on Tuesday and things did not go well. Long story short there were several complications that resulted in an emergency c-section. I am okay with what happened because it was what was best for the baby and for me. It is obviously not the birth we had planned but we got to have some awesome moments throughout it all and I wouldn't change that for the world. At 11:19PM on August 4th Benjamin Joseph arrived at a lovely 8lbs 8oz and 21.5 inches long. If you are interested in the full birth story I posted it on the bump. http://community.thenest.com/cs/ks/forums/thread/20455107.aspx We were just released from the hospital yesterday and all is going well now that we are at home. I am amazed at how awesome he is and love watching Joey be a father. Here is a quick photo from right after the c/s. I will post a better picture of the little man in a few days. .

    I'm pretty sure it's pronounced your mom's a moron and if you didn't have your name legally changed by the age of 22, so are you. Unless you're from another continent. -Groomz
  • Babbs - I had some issues with people posting things that I didn't want posted on other boards a few months ago so I think that your contact was trying to keep this in mind when deciding to give out information. She probably wasn't sure if I was going to post an update or not and didn't want to give out info if I wasn't going to post about it.
  • It's okay, the AFSB Psychic Friends Network were on top of things.

  • Babbs-what FB games are you addicted to? If you've never played Bubble Spinner, don't do it. It will hypnotize you, it's evil.

  • My high score is 839. I've played a similar game on a different site and been able to score much higher. Even though I think it's evil, I can't stop myself.

    Sometimes I wonder if scientists have never seen a sci-fi movie before. "Oh yes, let's create a super species of deer. NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG." I wonder if State Farm offers a Zombie Deer Attack policy. -CaliopeSpidrman
  • Congratulations guys! I'm looking forward to more pictures. =)

  • Congratulations!  He's beautiful.  I'm not reading your story just yet, because I just woke up and don't want to be sad.  But he is beautiful, and not many babies are that cute that soon.  I think a combination of good genes and not having to venture through the scary vagina is doing him wonders.  It's always worked for me.I'm so excited for you.  (though next time, you may want to consult with me about a name.  There's a chance the name Pickles Sanchez may still be available, and it could have been yours.  But your name is nice too)
