Put Noah to work.

Amie's last day at the hospital was yesterday, so Noah and I spent the day alone. Just the guys. But to tell you the truth, we really had quite the task at hand: to clean the house and have it ready for our new baby sister! Noah did his fair-share of cleaning, as you will see in the following photographs.

We really had a great time together yesterday. He's an awesome little kid.

Photos of Frencesca.

Here are some adorable photos I took of Frencesca! Most of them are from the day she was born (you'll notice lots of Vernix), the rest are from the following two days.

Amie woke up at about 4:30 a.m. on Friday with hard and very constant contractions. We were in the hospital by 5:30, as the contractions got a lot more painful. She asked about the epidural and at about 8:30 the anesthetist was able (after three tries) to help her out. At around 10:10 a.m. she began pushing our little one out, and although her epidural wore off* and she was in excellent pain, she did so very well. She only pushed for a little under ten minutes.

* I say wore off but we both think that they either forgot to give her an additional dose at the appropriate time, or they intentionally turned it off.
