Delaney finally arrived at 5:02 p.m. on 8/9. She was 20 3/4 in. long and weighed 8 lb. 15 oz. When we left the hospital on 8/11 she had lost a little weight and weighed 8 lb. 8 oz. Be sure to read the "Story of Delaney's Birth" - my recollection of the events that occurred on Delaney's birth day. I'm not a writer so I'm sure it is pretty dry and boring, but Gina and I wanted to write down everything we experienced that first day so we wouldn't forget it.

We've started using an online picture album at SmugMug rather than keeping the pictures on our own site up to date. Phanfare is a great site for hosting pictures that really makes it easy to keep your pictures up to date.

Delaney's Baby Shower

Gina had our baby shower on June 5, 2004, and we got a lot of wonderful gifts and had a wonderful time. Thanks so much to Kelli, Laura, Tracie, and Leigh Ann for organizing and hosting the shower for us. Laura gave us all her pictures so we put them on the website for everyone to share in the fun.

Delaney's Nursery

We had a lot of fun painting Delaney's nursery and it has ended up looking great! We added pictures of the nursery to our site so that everybody can enjoy seeing the room. Thanks so much to Tracie for helping us with the room. We really couldn't have done it without her.

Birthing Classes

We started birthing classes on June 1, 2004, and we tried to keep notes on the class about what we went through each week.

This 3-D Ultrasound picture was taken on 4/22/2004. You can really make out all of the features of Delaney's head, face, and arms. The big spot on her head is nothing to worry about though. That is actually just a shadow being caused by the placenta. We were lucky to get the 3-D Ultrasound because this was done on the first day that the hospital started using the 3-D Ultrasound. What a difference there is between this and our regular ultrasound pictures! On this day Gina was 25 weeks pregnant. Delaney is due on August 4, 2004.
