Below: About to start being induced on Tuesday because Mom-to-be had high blood pressure. Smiling because I didn't yet know that process would take 3 days and be an emotional and physical roller coaster.
Finally on Friday afternoon some combination of the hormones, induction massages, and my talks with baby ("I'm sorry we have to rush you but you need to be born now") worked and he arrived on Friday night. Let's skip the messy photos of immediate birth and go to Day 1:
We enjoyed the availability of nurses at the hospital, free diapers, etc, but after we had met about 15 nurses from Tuesday to Sunday we were ready to go home.
Dad works on crying baby.
First outing to dog park!
First photo shoot (Devon is back on the camera after a hiatus from this hobby).
