more pictures!

So Penny has a sweet mullet. It's awesome. Her mullet hair is over and inch long red/blond and a little curly-ish.

Welcome to the family Penelope!

Well, 2:20, May 15th 2009, Penelope Nieman entered the world! The delivery went great, Jessica did a great job pushing for about an hour till the top of Penny's head was exposed. Then the Doctor came and 2 pushes later she was out! 7 lbs 6 ounces, and 19 inches of perfect baby girl. She's a cutie, with a fair amount of blond hair. She's just getting used to using her eyes in this bright world.

We're still taking suggestions on middle names! Right now we're thinking May or Fey... any ideas?

Baby on the way!

So no baby yet, but we've had a pretty exciting time at the hospital here in Rexburg. Here's the timeline so far:
Thursday 7:00 am - get to hospital,
8 am - induction attempt #1 results in Jessica's water breaking,
9 am - induction attempt #2 works, 9 am to 4 pm sleep/rest but no dilation yet!,
4 pm - 7 pm friends visit and Lindsay wins Ticket to Ride,
8 pm - 4:30 am really really painful contractions... but Jessica dilates from a 1 to a 2.75, enough for an epidural!

Joe also came in to visit for a while around 11, and at 2:30 Jessica's parents finish their long trek from Irvine, and make it to the hospital! We're really excited they could make it up here.

The good news is once Jess got the epidural she dilated really quickly to a 5, then we were able to get some sleep and when we woke up she was at a 7-8! So as of now we're almost at a ten which means that Penelope should be coming out in the next few hours!

Here are some pictures from the hospital as well as some form our trip to Jackson Hole last week.

Getting the epidural from Todd... it was both of our firsts... not really.

Top line is the baby's heart rate, bottom line is contractions!

Mango flavored ice chips yum!

Yes we watched Baby Momma... for the millionth time.
