Damnit!!! I knew I forgot something!!! Right now I'm on the sidelines and can only watch. She's dialated 9-centimeters and she's in labor. I already got snapped at when I spoke to her so I'm sitting here in silence.

Richard Engel live from Peace River Medical Center in Port Charlotte, Florida.

(I know my wife would absolutely kill me if she knew I was posting in here while she was in labor)

Take your pick brethren. Cuz I sure as heck not having any.

Thanks for the comments friends. I swung over to McDonald's around 7, ate a Egg McMuffin, laid back in the chair in the room and just recently woke up. The family is now starting to arrive here at the hospital and my two oldest children are eyeing the baby. My oldest is perfectly ok and excited. The youngest (Becca) has a "WTF" look on her face. LMAO

As soon as I swing by our place, I'll grab the USB Cable and get some photo's here.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. They both came home Friday afternoon and they are doing good. My wife is still exhausted physically and her and the baby have been resting extensively. Our oldest daughter is excited for the baby in the home however our youngest is experiencing withdrawals and new feelings of no longer being the "baby".

This is new to us but we are learning to adapt and making sure we are giving them all equal love and care. I myself still feel tired as it's been taking more out of me than the previous two. Thursday night I saw Steve and gave him a Chocolate Cigar and his camcorder back. Twas good to see a familiar face again.

Once again thank you everyone and I'll keep in touch. FYI, Rich has the RAW Footage from my camera (that yall got me) and I assume he's working on or planning a "teaser" in the near future.

Till then...

Tom
