1 week and 29 years

Today we celebrated Emma's one week birthday and Tyson's "Golden Birthday" (a.k.a. 29 on the 29th) Emma's we celebrated by getting a six hour chunk of sleep. YEAH! Tyson's we partied like the animals we are. Below are pictures of what Tyson came home to. Ben was the one that artfully arranged the balloons, mom and I did the rest.



As you can see many presents were involved. 29 actually. Don't worry they weren't expensive or really very interesting. The boxes mostly consisted of things like 29 Jelly Beans, 8 bouncy balls, or 16 peeps.



I think it was a most enjoyable birthday, despite the unfortunate requirement of attending school, but the jury is still out on who enjoyed the 29 presents thing more....Mom and I while coming up with and searching out each item, Tyson while opening them, or Ben while helping daddy open them...

...he did a similar dance for almost every present!


And because I'm sure all of you were wondering what Emma was wearing for dad's big day, here's the outfit.



And also because I've somehow neglected to post a single thing since Monday, sorry about that everyone, here's a slew of more cuteness.





This onesie we thought was particularly funny; especially since we paired it with pink pants.


I think Ben was feeling left out. Every time we started taking pictures of Emma he wanted in on the action.




You can't have a slew of cuteness without at least one of the original Eucker cutie.

Home again, home again, jiggitey jig!

Well today real life settled in. We took Emma home! Without all the nurses hovering around helping I feel more of a burden than ever with my inability to do anything, but hopefully that will change quickly! Here are just a few more pictures. The first few are just before we left the hospital and then of course there's the "oh my goodness, she's so tiny in that car seat" pictures, followed by just another few cute ones.

In no particular order here is more cuteness....

I keep trying to upload a video of Ben's first moments with Emma (super sweet!) but for some reason it hasn't worked yet. Hopefully soon.

1 down...6570 to go

Well we made it through the first night dispite Emma's, the nursing staff's (who where just doing their jobs and where ridiculously nice), and my pulse rate's (which absolutely refused to get much above 40bpm resulting in an alarm going off every few minutes, unless I was drugged which then shot it up to 110 bpm along with a fever) best efforts. So here's the reward of our survival....lots of pictures!

WAITING FOR EMMA.....


EMMA MEETS THE WORLD...




EMMA MEETS MOM AND DAD...




EMMA MEETS BEN...
I clicked the shutter a half second too late. Ben's expression was actually directed towards Emma before he got distracted by all the cool machinery mom was hooked up to.





There will be more to come, including video; but they'll have to wait till we're discharged. I think I lost more sleep over trying to get these photos posted right using the hospital's lousy internet (the ONLY complaint there is about this great facility) then I did over Emma, the nurses, and the beeping machines combined!
