Ten 'Til Ten (Part 5)

I'm not sure I ever adequately captured Owen's birth story in the days that immediately followed his entry into the world. Subsequent birthday posts did a pretty good job but here's the first Owen post complete with first Owen pictures. Beth's still horrified by the fact that he came into the world to Phil Collins' cover of You Can't Hurry Love, hence the title. Me, well, I thought it was just perfect.

TRUST IN THE GOOD TIMES
February 12, 2008

Apologies to all for the infrequent updates. If you've had a kid, well, you completely understand. If not, just you wait.


Owen and Beth are resting comfortably in the hospital. I think they're getting sprung tomorrow. It won't be a moment soon. The grandparents have been amazing keeping track of Mia as best they can. But I know Mia's patience is wearing out and she wants her mom, dad and baby brother home. I've been sleeping on the bizarre couch-bed hybrid they've got in the hospital room and trying to let Beth get as much rest as she can.

Right now, I'm home for a shower and a little food. When Mia wakes up from her nap, we're heading to the hospital to visit the baby. She visited yesterday and couldn't stop kissing Owen.

This has been an overwhelming experience. When I have the time later this week, I'll share the story. It's a good one. In the mean time, thank you all. I can't believe how much email Beth and I have gotten. There's no way we're getting through all the comments any time soon but we'll try. Suffice it to say, thank you all so very, very much. You guys sincerely rock and I can't tell you how much I appreciate you.
