I'm Glad I Went to Nineveh

Tuesday evening Amber was induced. We waited, patiently and not too patiently. Here are a few things to do when you are waiting, waiting and waiting at the hospital.

The wait continues, here are a few tips from 5 year old Daniel.

Stand on your head.

Hang out in the cafeteria and eat lots of cereal.

Pull a spongy pillow over your face and greet other visitors.

Take random pictures on people entering and exiting elevator.

And finally Baby Asher arrives May 16, 2007

Asher Thomas Palacios

6 pounds

19 3/4 inches

Momma and baby Asher are doing wonderfully.

Papa, Daniel and Baby Asher

Daniel waited forever for
Baby Moses aka Asher.

Asher will learn great and wonderful things from his cousin.

Amber was on a strict diet for 6 weeks. She requested pizza and ice cream following delivery.

Awesome. Lea and I noticed that Angel didn't take his eyes off that new boy. It was as if no one else was even in the same room with him. Where ever little Asher when, so did Angel.

He was a proud dad.

That baby has the longest legs I've ever seen! What a cutie! I hope you had the pizza and ice cream waiting - she more than deserved it.

Trey, thanks for sharing about Angel - the new Daddy part is my favorite scene with births. Just like in a wedding when you watch the groom first see his bride. Awesome!

Congrats and have lots of fun!

Daryl & Monalea,

congrats. I thought of you several times today. I almost called while I was in Lubbock today. It was a very quick trip.
