Recovering nicely

Well, Denita snapped back so quickly that we were able to head home yesterday afternoon!

We are starting to settle into the routine of things (Zane gets back today, so that will make things a tad busier).

A big THANK YOU to all of you who have passed on their congratulations. We appreciate the outpouring of love and kindness we have been receiving.

May all of you have a wonderful Christmas, and check back every now and again and we should have some more pictures.

Damn, that was QUICK!

Well, Tabitha decided that she did not want to wait for the "eviction notice".

Denita's water broke at 1am and we were at the hospital by 1:45am.

After just 4 hours of labor, Tabitha arrived at 5:20am weighing 8lbs. 9oz. and was 20.5in long.

Both Denita and Tabitha are fine. Tabitha came out a bit bruised, she started heading out face first but is healthy and fussy (she does not like the fact that her spa got drained without her permission.

Pictures will be forthcoming.

The Calm before the Storm

I had meant to post the latest picture of Tabitha much earlier than this, but things have been hectic/crazy around here as of late. Trying to get all of the prep work at home getting the house ready for Tabitha, dealing with two unplanned hospital visits (one for Zane and a massive asthma attack [he's doing fine, don't worry] and the other for heart palpitations with Denita [don't worry, she and Tabitha were fine]) and all the other things life brings has kept me a bit busy.

So before things get any more crazy, here is the latest Tabitha picture:


You just have to marvel at modern technology. Thank you God for gifting people with the smarts to figure out how to do this.

Things should be much more interesting for the family by this time tomorrow. We head in to Austin to the hospital at 5:30am Friday if Tabitha has not made an appearance by then, so labor can be induced. Denita's been in a lot of pelvis pain (nothing to worry about, just signs pointing to the fact that due to her age, Tabitha will probably be her last child through the natural process) and in case of any unforeseen complications everyone feels that it would be safer for all involved to take care of things before the hospital goes to a low-staff schedule for the holidays.

I'll have cameras and the laptop with me, so if the hospital is WiFi equiped, we might liveblog for a bit. Else, expect an update Sunday or Monday depending on when she's released from the hospital and how everyone is feeling.

Until then, MERRY CHRISTMAS! And remember, Christmas is not at all about the gifts we give and it certainly is not about a fat guy in a red suit, it's about the greatest gift ever given... the fulfilled Promise of God through Christ Jesus.
