Pregnancy Peppers

 I forgot to post this picture from a week or two ago.  We figured out that Sam ate approximately 20 peppers each week during the last few months of her pregnancy.  Twas her go-to snack at all times of the day or night.  You're welcome, Costco.  We haven't really decreased our pepper consumption postpartum.  I love them as well.
 I never thought of Douglas as a big boy until I started carrying around our little 8-pound Penny.
What he thinks of his new little sister.

 "Haha.  Good one, Dad."
"Oh, really?"
 "Enough pictures!"
 "Alright, I'm tired of this."
Doogles loves his little sister.

Penny - Day 3

Getting ready to leave the hospital

Home, sweet home!

Penny needed a bit of sunshine today, but my face does not need more sunshine.

"Oh, that feels good."
Relaxation
Whoa, did I take one too many photos?

Father's Day

 Penny got some semi-skin-to-skin time with.........well........um........I'm not sure what that is.  I think it's her father, but it looks like a corpse.
Grandma Coombs helped Doogles answer these questions about me.

"Dad, why are you smiling at the camera?  I think something is wrong."
Sam helped Doogles answer these questions about me.
Doogles (Sam) gave me this card for Father's Day.  By the way, Penny has been releasing a large amount of toxic fumes today.  I wonder if she inherited my odorous genes.



What a cutie!  Awesome Father's Day gift.

Penny Marcia Ogden

I received a wonderful pre-Father's Day gift today.

Sam woke me up at 6:45 this morning and told me she was having some strong contractions.  30 minutes later she told me to call Margaret (her Mother) and get ready to go.  I called our neighbors 15 minutes after that and they sent their daughter (Elsie) to stay with Douglas until Margaret arrived, and we headed off to the hospital.  We arrived at the hospital at 7:59am, Sam was checked by Marcie, the nurse in the Labor & Delivery section (Sam's water broke while Marcie was checking her) at 8:13am, and Penny Marcia Ogden was born at 8:28am, three days after the due date.  She came so fast the doctor didn't even make it to the birth, and Sam didn't have time to receive an epidural.  
Penny weighed in at 8 pounds 7 ounces and is 19.5 inches long.  She's a healthy little girl.  Despite some tearing Sam is doing well and is very happy to have given birth naturally.

I had the pleasure of dealing with the first poop.


And then there were four!
