It was a pretty wild delivery. My wife's epidural started wearing off so they were busy trying to get that fixed when a nurse decided to check the baby's progress. She goes, "Oh my God, call the doctor RIGHT NOW. He's about to come out."
The nurse pages the doctor but he was crowning and showed no signs of stopping. She runs into the hallway, literally grabs this startled doctor we'd never seen before, and throws him in front of the baby. Baby almost falls out into his hands.
Our doctor comes running in nearly out of breath and has this look of utter disappointment on his face when he sees the baby already being tended to. I got a great picture of his reaction.
My wife decided to let her parents and my mom witness the birth this time and it was really special. They were thrilled that they got to be a part of it (especially considering the humorous aspect of the whole thing).

Of course she's handling it much better than we are...
The day care transition is often rough, but I think our current place (which we love) has been really good for our daughter's development.

Last night my daughter comes in about 9:30. I had put her to bed about 8:30 so it was very unusual for her to actually get up and come looking for me since she knows she'd get in trouble.
She says, "Daddy, I pee-peed on my shirt."
"Ok no problem sweetie, we'll get you changed." I go to take her shirt off and......it's not pee-pee. It's pure 100% USA Grade A #2 poo, in liquid form. And it is all over her pants, and running down her legs, and on the carpet. I call to my wife. "Babe.....I...............need.................HELPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
About this time the baby starts screaming, because babies automatically know the worst possible time to start crying and always take full advantage. My wife is calling, "Ummm I can't, the baby is crying."
"No, you don't understand. The baby can cry. I need help NOW."
We plop her in the tub, start yanking off clothes and putting them in plastic bags. Then I go into her room. There is poo on the bed. I yank off the sheets. The poo has leaked down to the mattress cover. It is on the floor. It is on the walls. It is a poo explosion.
When all was said and done we finally had the situation under control by 11:00pm, including bath, laundry, getting the kids calmed down and back in bed. And my friends wonder why I never have any gaming time anymore...

Wife was changing Zack this morning, reached for a diaper and Zack sat up and fell off the changing table. Fractured his arm just above the elbow. Laughing and playing like nothing is wrong... Tough 9.5 month old who is taking after his uncle who broke his leg at 2 and both arms before he was 7
