Erin Update

In the past week Erin has had her first real bath (yes, she loved it and yes, we got it on video), made her first trip to Garden of the Gods, and made her modeling debut with her first official photo shoot (thanks Julie). We've had lots of visitors and will be sad to see Bob's parents leave tomorrow. They have cooked about 20 meals, done at least 25 loads of laundry and changed lots of diapers. Pretty soon I will be all on my own...yikes! More pictures for your enjoyment. I even caught one of Erin smiling for me OR maybe she is just passing gas.

One Week Old

I can't believe our little Erin is one week old as of yesterday. She is such a sweet girl and so well tempered!!! She has amazed me at how quickly she is changing. Her eyes are open more often and she is always trying to lift up her head. She is already sleeping better at night and she recognizes my voice when I walk in the room. I think I'm already getting emotional about her growing up too fast!

Even though I look horrible in this picture, this is one of my favorite things to do with Erin. I was tired!!!

First walk with the BOB!

I better run because I hear her cute little grunts. I'll have Bob post more videos later so you can hear her high pitched cry :)

Erin Comes Home

We brought Erin home from the hospital Saturday. Here is some video courtesy of the video camera Grandpa Bob and Busia (Rachel's parents) gave us.

Thanks for all of the calls and well wishes the last few days. We all appreciate them.

We have a baby girl. Erin Kelly Sullivan.
Fully dialated. Getting ready to hee hee hoo.
After we dozed off for a bit (Bob much more than Rachel), the doctor came to check things. He said she is 8cm. Almost time to PUSH. 3:50 AM.

Not going home anytime soon. Doctor just broke her water to see if he could get things to progress faster. 14 hours and counting!

Getting Induced

Rachel is at the hospital now getting induced. It is her due date afterall. We will see how long it takes baby Sully to come. We will keep you posted.

Love,
BOB

Fully Cooked

Okay baby sully, we are ready for you to meet the world. In case you didn't know, you should be fully cooked by tomorrow so it is safe to come out and play! We have your room all ready and your daddy has been hard at work finishing up projects. Hope to hold you very very soon (and find out if you are a boy or a girl)!

39 weeks & change

No Baby Yet!

Well, I had my 39 week appointment today thinking some sort of major event was going to happen (we had our bags all packed and in the car just in case). Much to my surprise, it was very uneventful....which is great news! I'm still not favorable for an induction, so they are going to let me go until my appointment next Wednesday and figure out what to do then. I was really hoping to go into labor on my own, so this gives me at least one more week for that to happen. I'm not sure what they'll do if I reach 40 weeks, but I'm happy for now!

Bob had to go back to work after the appointment, but we both feel like we were given some extra time that we didn't think we would have. I still have a huge list of things I wanted to get done before the baby comes, so I'll just chip away at that and enjoy the time before we are sleep deprived from our little bundle of joy! I'll try to keep you posted if anything happens...we're now just playing the waiting game.
