Theo Jeffrey is Born

At about 7am I started having contractions. Within a half hour they were only minutes apart, but I could still walk and breath through. 
 Brooke woke me up way too early and told me the news. I was hoping to sleep in since I'd been out late for that final Hollow Boys show.
With them being close together I called the midwife just in case. She said to call back when I couldn't talk through them. About an hour and half later we were on our way to the birth center. 
Brooke spent most of the first few hours in the water-birthing tub. Meadow and I read books and she made fun out of whatever she could find.
After a couple of hours of intense contractions I was getting tired. We were basically waiting for my water to break to begin pushing.
Meadow eventually decided to dip her toes and then her legs into the bath.

We might as well make something something fancy for breakfast since we're stuck here until the baby comes. Today we made kaiserschmarrn.
While waiting for breakfast Meadow and I played her memory game. We seemed to have lost her new card game set or at least we don't remember where we put it.

I'm pretty sure they're in her new toy boxes.
Anyways, the emperor's trifle is dang good. 
Meadow has been asking to go to the American mall (That's Mall of America to everyone else) so we decided today would be the day. But first we had to stop at the library for new books and movies.
Meadow picked out a Legos Justice League movie and I picked out the Incredibles. Ever since Halloween she's been obsessed with super heroes and Wonder Woman in particular.
Apparently everyone that didn't want to deal with the Super Bowl people last…

Super Boring Sunday LII

Friday We had planned on airbnbing our old house during the Super Bowl. Then we sold our old place, got a condo and Brooke got pregnant. So, that was off the table. On the Friday before the big game we took the bus to Downtown to explore Super Bowl Live.
