You’re here! My water was broken at 8:30 in the morning on Wednesday and you came at 4:20 that afternoon. I had some pain medication because the contractions were pretty strong, and once at the beginning and once at the end your heart rate dropped really low and scared everyone! When it was time to push, you rolled onto your right side with your face pushed into the wall of my birth canal so we had to roll me onto my left side to make you roll over. The whole time I was having contractions, you would only let me lay on my right side or your heart would slow down, which was very strange! By the time I could push, almost all the pain medicine was gone. It took an hour and a half to push you out.
Hello Little One, today you’re three days old. You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I love hearing all the little noises you make, even you’re crying makes me smile. I know that sounds kinda weird, but, I love the acknowledgement that you’re healthy and alive. I have yet to get as many pictures of you as I would like, but trust me Little One, there will be more than enough soon. When we were in the hospital waiting for you, I prayed to Lady Hera, and Lady Artemis, and sent a general prayer to any other goddess out there to help you come along smoothly. You gave us a scare when your heart rate dropped, twice, but everything worked out. At 4:20 p.m. we had a beautiful little girl. After they took you away to get you cleaned up a bit, Mommy got to hold you for an hour, I was honestly a little jealous, but I got over it. I know that you and Mommy have a special bond, I just hope that one day our bond will be just as special. Well, I should probably go now, we’ve got things to do today, Daddy loves you Little One.
So, I am very proud to introduce Persephone Elysia Willow (per-sef-oh-nee eh-lee-see-ah), 8 pounds 1 ounce and 19 1/2 inches long. You’re a very calm, quiet baby with black hair and dark green eyes. You’re beautiful and we love you.

Mommy and Daddy love you!
Tomorrow, we go to the hospital. Tomorrow, the doctor is going to give you a little push to help you get here. He says you’re right there waiting to come out, but that my body isn’t doing what it’s supposed to very well. So, tomorrow he’s going to help you get here. So, you should be here on the 5th of June. I’m very excited, very nervous, scared, and all kinds of other feelings. I’m relieved too. I’m ready for you to be here, so is Daddy, and we’re ready to see you sleeping in your crib. I’ll update after you’re born and I’ve rested, or have Daddy do it so everyone can finally know your name and how big you were. Can’t wait to meet you! I love you!
Hey, sweetie, you’re going to be here in the next two days or so. I’m very excited. I’m also a little nervous, but, I’ll be better once you get here. I hope that you love us and your first home. I’ve tried to make it a good one, but you will have to share the floor with the three kitties, lol. I’m sure that everything will be ok. I can’t wait to see you!! Daddy is almost too excited, I mean, not really too excited, such a thing can’t really happen right? Anyway, I love you very much, and can’t wait to meet you face to face. I’ve been talking to you for about three months now, and I’m excited for you to hear my real voice, outside of Mommy’s tummy. Well, I should probably go now, sigh.
Daddy loves you little owl, forever and always.
Well sweetie, you’re almost here! You’re moving on down and I’m 2 cm dilated now. The doctor said when he checked you he could poke you in the head. While that bothers me a bit that he poked you, I think it’s very cool too. I should have asked how much hair you had! :P
The doctor says I’m doing really well and you are too. He said you’re pretty big, about 8 pounds, but I think he’s wrong. I don’t think you’re that big. He also says that if you don’t get her by June 4th, he’s going to induce me on the 5th and that’s less than a week away! I’m so excited! I think Daddy wants to talk to you now.
Hey little one, 2 weeks, I’m very excited. I can’t wait to see you. I know that it’s been awhile since i talked to you, and I’m very sorry for that. A lot has been going on lately. I got a new job, and we’ve had car troubles… but hopefully that will all be over with soon. I hope. I’m very anxious for everything to get under way. I’m a little worried that our car might break down on the way home with you, but, I’ll do what I’ve got to do. Even if that means that I’ve got to carry you and mommy home on my back. Anyway, I should probably go right now, our car might be done getting fixed soon. I need to take care of that. We love you little one, very much.
Well, we went to the doctor today. You’re just about ready to come out! The doctor said everything is about 50% thinned out and 1 centimeter dilated. You could be here in a few days or a week or so. I hope you’re here sooner because it’s hurting me so bad I can barely move! We’re all ready for you too. The only thing missing from your room is you. I just hope you aren’t born right on Mother’s Day this weekend. No offense, but I don’t want to share my day with you. ^_^
Love you and can’t wait to meet you.
Hey, little owl. Here we are two weeks later and we’ve been so busy! We’ve been washing all your clothes, putting everything together, cleaning a lot and just trying to prepare for you to get here. I’m right there at 9 months and you will be here any week now. I’m getting really uncomfortable and hurting all the time now and you make it so hard to breath. It’s going to be okay, though, because you’ll be here shortly and this part of your life will be over, the best part will begin.
I can’t wait to meet you! It seems I’ve been waiting forever and that you’ll never get here. Sometimes I wake up thinking that this will never be over and that I’ll never get to see you. I want to know what you look like. I want to know if you’ll have my hair or your daddy’s; my eyes or his. Soon, we’ll meet each other and we’ll both be so much happier.
I love you Little Owl.
It’s been about 2 weeks since the last time I posted. It’s Daddy’s birthday today and we’ve been having a good day so far ^_^. We’ve only got a few short weeks until you’re here and I’m so excited. You’re first shower went really well. Not nearly as many people showed up as what said they would, but, we got a lot of presents for you and the people that did show up is what matters. I’m having my doctors appointments every 2 weeks now and it’s making me very excited! I can’t wait to meet you. Daddy’s going to say something to you now.
Hello Little Owl, I know that it’s been awhile since I posted to you, longer even than Mommy, I’m really sorry about that. When Mommy comes to McDonalds to use the WiFi, I’m usually sleeping or something. I’m working the graveyard shift so that we can have money. I’m not complaining, a job is a job, but it is tiring. Every time I realize just how close to being here you are, i get a little more excited. I can’t wait to see how you turn out in life.Today is my birthday, I’m 22 today. I realize just how wonderful life really is. I’ve got a loving wife, a wonderful little girl on the way, and each day brings new things. Life seems to be turning right side up at last. Uncle Will might have a job working the same shift as me, so Gas shouldn’t be too costly, and all the bills will be split, so we can put more money aside for you. Well, I should probably head off for now, I’ve got things to get done today.
Love you lots Little Owl. And we always will.
It’s been about a month since I talked to you! We don’t have internet at the new house yet so this is the first time I’ve been able to get on and say anything.
The new house is coming along nicely. You’re room is all set up and everything for you is ready. We have everything just about unpacked and put away. There’s a lot more room at this house than at the other one and there’s a lot of yard so you’ll have plenty of room to play.
You have two parties coming up in the next month and I’m so excited for them. We picked out your name and it’s funny listening to everyones guesses; Prudence, Paisley, Presley, Paprika, Panene >.<. They’ll just have to wait till the party like everyone else.
As for how you’re doing, well the doctor says you’re just perfect. You’re 8 months along now and you weigh 4 pounds. You’re long and healthy and everything is developing the way it should be. It won’t be long now until we get to meet you! Daddy would come talk to you, but he’s working nights now so he’s been sleeping during the day.
I love you little owl, and we can’t wait to meet you!
Hello little one, like mommy said, it’s been awhile, but we’ve got a house now! I’m very excited. I’ve been packing all day, I’m a little tired, and sweaty, but aside from that, it was a day well spent. I really can’t wait until you’re here. Hopefully I can get a job soon, so that mommy and you can stay at home and relax. I wish that I had more to say today, but I don’t. I’m sorry little one. I love you so very much already, and you’re not here yet. Sigh, life has been very frustrating and has thrown a lot of mud in our face, but, we’ve powered through and come out at least kinda clean. lol.
Daddy loves you forever little one.
I know I haven’t talked to you in 2 weeks, but I have a very good reason. We’ve been trying to get a new house, one that’s safe for you to live in and today we got one! It’s a lot bigger than what we have now and it has a huge yard! I’m so excited to bring you home to it.
Now, as for all your growing, you’ll be 25 weeks this week. You’ve grown a lot of inches and gained a lot of weight in the last few weeks. Now you measure about 13 and a half inches and you weigh a little over a pound. You’re getting a little baby fat and you’re getting more hair (and it has color but I can’t see it of course). As for me, I’m not losing my hair anymore so it’s all full and shiny. I can’t move so well anymore, but that’s okay. You’re kicking me so much and so hard that it sort of hurts sometimes, but I love it!
I love you so much and it won’t be long before we get to meet you!
Hello little one, It’s Daddy. I know that it’s been awhile, and I’m really sorry for that. I love you so much. You’re a little girl!! I love it! We kinda thought that you might be a boy, but we’re not disappointed. We’re very happy. I can’t wait to meet you, it’s been so long, and there’s still more time to go. Sigh. But we’ve got the perfect name for you. Mommy doesn’t want it out there right now, but it’s perfect for you. You’re going to be a little Spring baby, and your name has a lot to do with spring. It’s a very beautiful name. Lots of vowels and pretty sounds. I can’t wait till I can see your little eyes light up with delight at the world around you. Everything is kinda crazy right now, we just put in our loan application to get what will be the house that you start your life in. It’s going to be a lot of fun getting used to your schedule. You’re probably going to want to be fed a lot, and changed a lot at night, and that’s going to take some time to get used to. I enjoy being able to sleep through the whole night, but I’ll change for you my little one. I’m so happy that you’re getting closer to arriving. I know that you’re going to be a very beautiful little girl. I’m going to have so many pictures of you that I’ll have plenty of things to embarrass you with for the rest of your life! Well, I should probably go, I love you so much my little one.
Daddy Loves You Forever.
