Baby Elizabeth Kay McSwain  was born August 26th 2012 @13:30 via C Section.  At delivery she was 3 lbs 12 ounces and 17 inches long and she is so perfect. She is going to be staying in the NICU for a little bit just to monitor her growth and development as she was 6 weeks premature. The doctors say that they do not for see any complications and that for her age and being premature she is on track if not more mature than most 34 week babies.  Of course, I will be uploading a deluge of pictures and videos and I'll be sure to put links here to where ever I post them.  But for now I'm too tired to write  more. That's what four hours of sleep will do for three days.

To the Hospital: trip #2

So here I am laying in the uncomfortable "window bed", if you can call it that.  Julie and Elizabeth have been admitted to the hospital because of the concerns with mommies blood pressure. Right now its really looking like baby McSwain will be making an early appearance in the next 2-3 weeks.  It is still early to make that prediction and we will know more by tomorrow evening. I'm worried sick about Elizabeth and I am having a hard time waiting for results. But I'm positive that things happens for a reason and that things will work out fine.

It Is Never Done

So I've been trying to write this post about how the nursery is finally done for sometime now.  However, each time I get ready to sit down and finish the post and publish it my wife finds something else that just simply has to be done to said "finished" nursery.  The conclusion that I have come to is that the nursery will never be done and will continue to be a "work in progress". To that end, I have decided to post a couple pictures of what's been done thus far.
Just the beginnings
I have yet to get good quality pictures of the entire nursery.  I will work on that this week and maybe even do a video of the nursery.  As it stands at this moment I am very happy and very proud of the nursery.  I feel that it's unique and yet not too busy or full.  Although, by the time Elizabeth makes it here the room may have completely  Again, I state, It Is Never Done!
