July 2, 2 am - Nicole's water breaks and we head to the hospital.

Just arriving at the hospital -- in the evaluation area.

Feeling resigned... and a bit sleepy!

Before settling into the labor and delivery room -- where we spent the next 24 hours.

Hanging out on my left side, waiting for the blood pressure to drop. Otherwise feeling good. No one knows we're here yet!

Erik chilling out. Obviously still before dawn.

The epidural went in at about 8:10 am to Nicole's great relief -- the nurse and anesthesiologist, shown here, are Nicole's favorite people in the world at that moment.

Nicole's hero, the anesthesiologist!!

Now we have the opposite problem -- Nicole's blood pressure has dropped (typical with an epidural).

Chillin' out -- blood pressures finally sorted out.



Welcome Simon!
