Sept. 30, 7:01pm

I'm not sure when I will be able to post again. Robin and I called Kaiser, and they said to still come in at 8 to get induced (depending on how dilated Robin is) - so we are leaving in about 30 minutes for the Hospital!

I can't believe it's really happening - but like clockwork, every ten minutes or so, Robin says "here one comes" and she starts her concentration. She's really brave, and so strong. It's going to be a long beautiful night - and we all know what comes after night, the dawn - a new day.

We can't wait to bring Amalea home and start this new life as parents.


Sept. 30, 5:47pm

Contractions are anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes apart, lasting about 30-45 seconds.

We're going to call Kaiser at 7 to see what we should do (as we were scheduled to get induced at 8pm) so hopefully we can just wait at home and deal with the contractions until Robin is ready.

It's getting so close!

Sept. 30, 2:03pm

Robin began having light contractions this morning (early around 2:15) and they have been sporadic and far between. Right now they are about 30 minutes apart, and no more then 20-30 seconds long... but it seems like it has begun on its own!

So we'll keep you posted, but hopefully she won't need to get induced tonight.

Sept. 29

Another day of waiting. Robin and I are just settling into bed, thinking about how this will be our last night in this house without a child to take care of.

It has been strange to think that our lives will never be the same after she is born, but it is really weird to know that this is the last night. Being induced has this strangeness to it - labor is a mysterious thing, and then all of the sudden you know exactly (relatively) when the baby will be born.

We are so excited as we try and get some much needed sleep tonight... we are so blessed to have such great friends and family who will love and support Amalea - almost as much as Robin and I will.

I am planning on bringing my computer to the hospital, so I may be able to update from there - but hopefully the next post will contain a picture of the newest Krill.

Miss Amalea Lorayne Krill.

Sept. 28

It did not rain today, although it looked like it might.

We think Amalea doesn't like the month of September, and instead is choosing to wait for October.

Robin and I spent the day indoors watching the first season of Heroes (intermixed with breaks to go on walks, try to work the baby out). It was a nice day, although I think Robin would much rather be in the hospital working on getting Amalea out...

Who knows what the weekend brings.

It's looking like it might rain tonight. Perhaps Amalea LoRAYNE will come tonight too... who knows.

Sept. 26

Well, there was a baby born today! But it was not Amalea ^_^ my (jim) cousin Amy and her husband Danny had their first child today. A boy, named Luke. Congrats!

Amalea? when will it be your birthday? There is a full moon tonight! Come on!

Sept. 25

Sorry to those who had birthdays today, Amalea did not come.

We did go to the doctor today, and everything seems fine. Robin was dilated half a centimeter... so basically nothing. So the doctor made us an appointment at the hospital, for this Sunday at 8pm. If nothing progresses by then, we will go in and they will basically induce Robin.

Please be praying that it will not come to that... Robin really wants to try and do this naturally.

Sept. 24

Another day - no Amalea. Maybe tomorrow...

Sept. 23

It's actually the 24th now... 12:30am. No Amalea yet. Waited all day... even went to church, out to lunch with some kids from the youth group, then to Ikea for a five hour marathon of shopping... but still no Amalea. Next thing to try: jumping on a trampoline. Just kidding.

Her due date has come and gone, and we are anxiously waiting to see our child.

Check in here...

We will keep everyone posted via this blog in the upcoming days as Amalea's birth gets closer and closer. Check back every so often to see pics, and receive updates on where we're at.

For now... it's 10pm the day before Amalea's due date; we don't think she's coming yet.

We'll keep you posted...
