|05:22 pm - Announcing her arrival....|
...our daughter, Heidi Katarina, decided to arrive a month early. She was born March 6, 2006 at 3:43 p.m. Delivery was smooth, and both of us are already out of the hospital and home.
Both Heidi and myself have had a lot of people come at us over the past few days at the hospital and are feeling both sleep deprived and over-saturated with attention. So daddy Wolf (aka the_monkey_king will be taking all phone calls that I'm just not up for yet -- feel free to call him; he'd love to hear from you. Emails are fine for me, but I may not reply for a while. Home visits will have to wait until Heidi is a bit older.
I wanted to give a big shout out ot all the organizers and attendees of the "Just-in-time" shower on Saturday. I was really happy to see and hear from you. And, yes, I was surprised, though not as much as I was Sunday at midnight when I realized that I would be going to the hospital soon. I had about four hours in which to pack, shower, and let Wolf get some much needed rest before awakening him with three magical words: "My water broke."
At some point in the near future, Wolf and I will set up a separate blog for Heidi, That way, those who are excited about babies in general or her in particular can read more while those who just want to keep up on the regular posts will find it on our more adult-content oriented blogs without having to slog through endless gushing baby posts.

Oh wow! Congratulations! And post if you need people to inundate you with casseroles.
Oh Wow! Welcome to the world Heidi and congrats to mom and dad. I hope pictures will be forthcoming.
Ooh ooh ooh! Congratulations!! Will definitely be follwoing the baby blog, as I'm much more interested in other people's babies now that mine is half grown. :)

Welcome Heidi and Congratulations!! So sorry to have missed the shower. Hope things settle down nicely. :)
Congratulations to both of you! And love to Heidi.
How wonderful! I wanted to call, but I have only the new address, not the cell phone numbers, here on Lilith.
Just remember the important lesson to instill: In college, Mom is the one you call for money. Uncle Dave is the one you call for bail money.
Congratulations to you both!
That is so great! Congratulations to all three of you!
I remember those words at about 5.30 in the morning with our second boy. Makes the blood run warm and cold at the same time.
Congratulations! Glad you're all home and doing well.
Congratulations to you, Wolf, and Heidi!
Congratulations and welcome to the world, Miss Heidi! Talk about a just-in-time baby shower. Yay! Can't wait to meet the new little lady, and looking forward to seeing mom and dad soon, too.
I am so happy for you three, congratulations!
oh, that is just the best news ever!
Please let me in on the baby blog -- I can't wait to find out more and more and more!
We also looking forward to meeting her!
Best wishes -- lots of luck, and lots of love to you!
Congratulations! And welcome, Heidi!
