dedicated to Helen Lee!

Look! My life changed on 7/13/12.
She came to us on a Friday morning at 8:06am. To be honest I thought the operation was taking a bit long and i was getting a bit anxious. 15min passed. 25mins. I noticed they had Red Hot Chili Peppers blasting away on the OR speakers. WTH!!.. I tell Helen, "I think they're playing Foo Fighters" Helen's smile gives me some comfort.
30mins pass and I start thinking for the worst. Just my natural paranoid reaction.
I see the doctors frantically working, nurses grabbing these metal prongs and stuff. oi vey...
Then I hear Madeleine's first cry. I instantly fall in Love.

Doing that Daddy Thing Special PRE DELIVERY UPDATE

Better late than never!
I wanted to post this vid before Madeleine's birth but couldn't push it out before the weekend. No pun intended ;)
In this vid, you get a view of Madeleine's completed nursery, a story of a chicken or an owl (you decide), and a message from mommy and daddy to our MadPie.

3rd Trimester Catch Up!!

I finally got up and updated the blog. I was sick and out. I even missed work and I'm Korean. We never call in sick! :0
Anyways, the baby is 2 weeks behind in growth rate. We're hoping she's small because of genetics and not IUGR which was mentioned by the doctor... pretty scary stuff.
We were slated to deliver on the 7th of July but was pushed back a week.
And Helen was advised to drink Ensure every night. Yum!
