READY FOR VIRGINIA
The new addition to our family, Virginia Elizabeth, arrived February 7, 2001 at 4:33AM, weighing 6 pounds, 12 ounces. She is 19 inches long. As they say, 'no one wants to hear about your labor of love, they just want to see the baby'. So, here she is. These are all the pictures from the first 'day', which is actually more than 24 hours.
Packing to go. It's amazing how much you can carry into the hospital without anyone asking any questions.
Just arrived. Hospital gown...check. On the monitor...check. Not happy about it...check.
Suzette, our favorite nurse, Andrea, and Dr. Bone.
The expectant couple.
Billy and Paulette
saved our proverbial lives many times.
Their calm and easy natures helped us to stay calm and easy.
Virginia in scrubs. There's nothing so flattering as paper clothing.
Shane in scrubs. Bad horror movie material.
Virginia's first picture. They didn't stop me from taking the picture, so I guess it was OK...
Thirty seconds old.
Virginia's first nude. I'm sure this will embarrass her for years to come.
Virginia and Virginia. I thought grandma might explode with joy.
High tech baby bed. Amazing, but can it make a grilled cheese sandwich? I don't think so.
Doc Savage oversees.
New baby! Dad's not so new...
