Gretchen has started having pretty regular contractions (5 to 10 minutes apart), so we’re in a holding pattern here waiting for things to develop. The boys are pretty excited about their new brother’s imminent arrival. Especially Eli, who is already serenading the little guy with his favorite songs.

Right now Gretchen is laying down and trying to get some sleep. I was pretty nervous so I walked down to the store and got a coke and some ice cream, and now I’m too hyped up on sugar and caffeine to sleep. I’ll keep posting updates here as things develop. Also, if you have a facebook account I’ll be posting updates there as well, find me at
