First Night

The first night in the hospital Danielle and I laid down to spend a little time with Ella. I know, it's a terrible video but the sound is the best part.

First Bath

I know the babyhoff blog hasn't been updated in a while but Ella is coming up on 1 year in September and so I thought I'd comb through some of the videos we've collected so far and share the never-before-seen-behind-the-scenes footage. I thought I'd try to find 1 video for every month so far but we'll see as we go along. These first videos are of Ella getting her first bath!

Ultrasound full screen!

20 week 2 day ultrasound

Thought I'd share this with you guys. Hot off the press-a brand new MOVING ultrasound! Can you tell if it's a girl or a boy? As you can see Danielle has been taking some abuse by this kicker! Hint-turn up the volume for doctor commentary. We spent the rest of the day registering at Babies R Us and Target.

I finally got the heartbeat file working so here it is. Give it a few seconds and the beat gets pretty consistant.

I missed out!

So last week Danielle went to the doctor for (what I thought) was a routine check up but ended up getting the full service treatment. She came out with an ultrasound AND got to hear the heart beat. But get this, Danielle said she actually saw the baby JUMP! I don't know what that means in relation to the tiny living quarters but movement at all is great all the same.

Where was I? I decided to sit this one out due to some meetings that I had going on and, like I said, I thought it was just another check the pulse/Q&A session. I'll never miss another one. Here is the latest ultrasound.

Sadie-a new baby

Our good friends Steve and Laura Mohr just had their little girl Sadie and we went by and for a visit last night. I got hold her for a little while and I seem to be getting more comfortable with holding babies. She's was a good baby while I held her with lots of expressions and wrinkly hands.

I'm not going to lie, their stories left me a little woozy. Every time I talk to someone about the delivery day I hear something new. SOMETHING else that I have to learn so we can be "ready". I guess I better read a book or something.


Coming soon...

  • The best of: Video reactions to the big news,
  • Illustration of what I think the baby is doing with his/her spare time.
