The wife had the baby on Friday night.

On Friday, August 27th, the wife called me at work and told me it was time to come home so we could go to the hospital - finally. It seemed as if she had been pregnant for well over a year. She did a great job dealing w/ the contractions for several hours, but finally gave in to the pain and received an epidural - which she later thanked the heavens for. A few hours later at 10:22 p.m., after pushing for almost fifty minutes, she had a baby girl!!! Ava Louise was 8 lbs. 6 oz. and 20 inches long. My wife was great throughout the labor/delivery process and I am so proud of her. We were able to come home this afternoon less than 48 hours from the time we arrived at the hospital.

Thanks - I'm just so happy that she is finally here. It seemed as if my wife was pregnant for over a year. It was a pretty awesome experience. It's really hard to explain. My brother was asking me how I felt and I said it was just an undescribable feeling. I think all of the parents around here (the old and the new) know what I am talking about.

My wife and her brother wouldn't mind that. He said that they were going to buy her a little Cubs shirt, but he thought it would probably not be a good idea. And he was right for once.

My sister already gave me an Edmonds outfit that her daughter wore.


Mr. M - does your lady-friend have any fine cigars to share?

Congratulations!!! Everytime I see one of these threads I think, "Maybe the wife and I should breakdown and have a little one of our own." Then the Visa bill comes in and squashes those thoughts.

Thanks everyone.

G-berg - She won't be able to get up and leave the room like my wife does during some of the shows.

The wife and I have liked the name Ava for a long time - so we always said that we would name our first daughter that. Louise is my wife's middle name. And the fact that they sound great together is just icing on the cake.

We recently found out that my best friend's wife loves the name, too, and was going to use it if they ever have any girls. Not anymore.
