baby update :-)) February 19, 2004 :-))

The vital statistics - 11:36 AM - boy - Mason David - normal :-))
The following images were taken about an hour after his birth.

Look at that :-)

Gina's 1st sushi

Randy with Mason

First shower :-(((

He was not immersed

More sushi,
not bad :-))

On heating pad :-)

The 3 Musketeers :-)
And would you believe I forgot to take a picture of the 2 happy grandmothers?

And I didn't get a picture of Gina with the baby
because the hospital staff wanted to keep Mason on the heating pad,
even though they let Randy hold and walk around with him,
and a hospital person gave him a little shower by sprinkling water on him.

Maybe the hospital staff was worried that placing a helpless infant

- on top of a fatigued, sedated, mommy
- on a narrow electric bed with no side rails
just might be an accident waiting to happen.

Ed (1st time GrandPops) Thelen ;-)))

P.S. (added morning Feb 20) Randy says that he and Gina are really happy with the Kaiser hospital staff. He said the pre-natal care and training was excellent, and the staff during the birthing stay was universally very friendly, attentive, and helpful.

Oh - and Randy reports that Mason is definitely connecting with Gina.
