Here are a few things I would LOVE to happen when the baby is born. I would like the delivery room as empty as possible, just me, Ace, and Sam (to field the doctors and nurses). After the baby is born I want to delay exams and such for 30-60 minutes so for bonding and establishing breastfeeding. At that point (when the baby is weighed and such) I would love for the grandparents (and any other family waiting) to come meet their grand baby. This would be an awesome time for pictures. By that time it will be time to transfer to the recovery room so family help moving stuff would be awesome.
I'd like to keep the first day visitors limited to our close family. PLEASE take pictures and video if you are there as I'm worried Ace and I will forget! We will probably be there at least part of the second day (you are supposed to stay 24-48 hours) that would be the time for extended family and close friends to come by. I'm going to ask some favors though, please don't bring flowers as they make Ace and I sneeze and please keep your visit somewhat short as I'd like to get as much sleep as possible before going home.
Please don't take any of this in a mean way... I just figured that if my family knew my wishes they would do their best to follow them because they love me. And even though this was only written by Allison, Ace agree's very much with me on all of this!
I'm really hoping that soon after the baby is born (within a month) we can have some family dinners and such with different groups of our family so that you can all be a part of our son's early life. So if you want to meet him right away I will really try to make that happen.
So back in may my birthday came and went. Ace and I went out to dinner and that was it. That evening ONE of our roommates said "Oh, its your birthday? Happy Birthday." and that was it. A week later Ace's parents took us both out to eat for a combined birthday thing. I didn't really care that no one noticed. It was sad not to get a card from my grandma, becuase if she was alive she would have remembered and there would have ben exactly 24 dollars in it....
Now my friend is turning 25 and going on and on about his birthday. He didn't say 1 word to my on mine.... it bugs me...... sigh.....
So we were searching ourselves and our friends in the County Records site, and I found a lot of stuff I didn't know... nothing worse than a DUI.... but then I found some personal stuff that is brand spanking new.... and now I feel like a terrible person. So I'm done now.
