Here we go...

[Imagine a picture of the patient entrance to the hospital, taken in
the early morning darkness today, because Blogger won't let me post it.]

We arrived here at 0-dark-thirty, after waking Auntie Banana at an
ungodly hour to ask her if she could tend to Barfy the Bunny Slayer until we can come home with 3B in our arms...or car seat.

Liberal Banana sounded not at all like I'd woken her from a dead
sleep, but as though I'd perhaps interrupted her lunch. How does she do it? How is she always so cool and collected?

As for Mama, she's a rock star. She's getting some rest right now. Her contractions started getting stronger and closer over 12 hours ago, which means that she didn't really sleep last night and that this rest is much needed.


  1. Holy crap! Good luck and congratulations!

  2. Good luck to you all, Bradstein family; I'll look forward to getting the good news!

    Woo hoo! Game on, Bradsteins! Good luck to Mama. Hope everything goes smoothly.

  4. LOL - yes, I was eating at that hour. (No, seriously. Before I went back to sleep I ate a Nutri-Grain type bar because all I had for dinner last night was cheese and crackers. Ah, the life of a single gal.)

    Looking forward to hearing the good news - here's to hoping that everything goes smoothly and Mom and Baby as healthy as can be!

  5. Northern Virgina gets ready to welcome it's newest blogger-to-be. Looking forward to hearing the results.

    I've been keeping tabs, through your webpage, about the arrival of the addition to our family. Nothing prepares you for the emotions you will feel when you see B3. The wonders and joy of pure and simple love.


  7. Oh... we can't wait to see all three of you! Good luck, xoxoxo to Mama!

  8. Barky the Bunny Slayer was right! No wonder he was going NUTS!

    Good Luck Mama!
    Come on 3B!


  9. Let me know if I need to turn off the auto e-mailer I activated last week that would ask you every 20 minutes if there was a baby yet. (I got the impression from your blog that you were getting agitated because not enough people were interested.)

    Best of luck to you, Mama, and 3B!

    (And to any stuffed toys in LB's apartment.)

    Welcome to the world, Solomon Holliday.

    We can't wait to see you. I guess I better get the outfit to you or you'll out grow it.

    Congratulations, Jess and Franklin and Barfy.
    Love, Mary and Bill

  12. I am so looking forward to your next post! Hope everything went well.
