Fantastic news, I was wondering when we might hear. Hello and welcome baby monkey! :)

So very relieved to hear no intervention was needed. Well done and congratulations to Mrs Cmonkey also!

Let's hope for your sake she makes the most of her quiet and homely crib ;)

She's adorable! I'm so glad things are going well. I wondered if you were still dealing with hospital stuff in Minneapolis in that crazy cold weather.

So far so good! She is proving to sleep a lot, but then it is really early. She just turned 1 week old. :D

We were in Iowa City, IA, at University of Iowa Hospitals but the weather is just as crazy. We got home right before it got bad yesterday. My thermometer read -23 F this morning at 5 AM (of course I'm up at that time ;) ). It's unfortunate but we actually lost our rooster Stanley because of this cold snap, it dropped to -22 F last Friday and it was just too much for him. In the past I had brought him in, but I wasn't home.

My chickens are currently living in my truck bed in the garage. Do what you can!

Congratulations on the precious little baby girl! Baby girls are the best! Just wait until the house is full of her giggles and tiny footsteps pattering down the hall. :D Wishing you all the best and Mrs. cmonkey a speedy recovery.

Thanks to both of you! It's been a wild ride so far but starting to get the routine down. The days go quick!

Thanks! I've almost been fully initiated now as of tonight having experienced her filling her diaper with 30 hours of shit in about 5 minutes. :lol: :lol: :lol:

1. I have been following the emotional rollercoaster in your journal and am glad that none of the fears seem to have materialized. It’s awesome that you’re entering parenthood in great financial shape, I think you will enjoy it more for all the options it affords you. (My experience was the opposite where having kids was the wake-up call on our financial situation, which added a lot of unnecessary stress.) Congrats to you and your wife on your lovely baby monkey (bmonkey?) and wish you the best on this adventure.

2. What happened to your income in December? :D

My heart literally tickled at the lack of complications. I'm so glad on your behalf!
Also: Your daughter looks so eerily much like mine did at 6 weeks, it's crazy!

Congratulations. Get some sleep :D

I was wondering if anyone would wonder. It's nothing more than the in-laws starting to gift us our inheritance I guess. This is the second year they've given us a chunk, but this year might be larger because of the baby. They have no idea how well we are doing, I'd guess they think we are scraping by based on our habits and lack of spending anything. They've told us they have 6 figures in their checking not doing anything (not sure how accurate) and I've seen their retirement statements. I don't think they have any debt and with their house paid off, I think they are close to millionaires. They are doing quite well, but strangely don't quite realize it. :lol:

Thanks FBeyer! People don't think she's newborn when they see her. One of the house keepers thought she was 8 weeks old and she was only 3 days...

Also, she's only 8 days old, but I can tell she's growing quickly already. Her face has changed and her hair has doubled in length since she was born. It's crazy!
