Ben venuti

Well, that was a little surprise. Had a garage sale on Saturday, and bearly_here spent most of it sitting in a chair. As we were cleaning up, she told me to pack up quickly. Apparently, her water had broken.

Headed to the hospital for a checkup, and they tried to admit us. Since contractions hadn't started, we opted to go back home and wait, which wasn't long in coming. We headed back at about 4:00am, and had a relatively quick labor.

At 1:54pm on Sunday, August 31, 2008, Benjamin Richard Jedlinsky arrived. He was 6.5 pounds, 19.5 inches long. Just over a month shy of his due date.
