How life changes after baby... getting new employee setup done, while he chills with me on his bili light and listens to some kid-friendly music.
What you get after a baby tickle. :)
Precious glow worm! Bili light is actually kind of soothing. :)
The new normal.
Just realized we had a bunch of deliveries to the house. Sleep deprivation and crying baby = ignored the mail. Thank you for the lovely flowers and baby gifts!! :)
Headed home from the hospital. All 5lb and 5oz of me! Mommy and Daddy didn't think they'd need the newborn insert for the carrier for long, but I had my own plans. ;)
These two men have all of my heart. Sleepy hospital cuddles ftw.
Ok, last new baby pic (for today, haha). Everyone wants to see his hair. It's a dark auburn.
Thank you @didrysdale for the receiving blanket!
I'm in love. Cc @bradcornelius
Remember that cute picture I took yesterday? This was taken about 2am last night I think. Eventually I lost all modesty and was completely naked after transitioning from the tub. Now have the dreaded hospital gown on, because I look like Frankenstein all wired up. Hope I don't scare this kid. Now fo
Hoping that we get to meet our son in the next two hours, because 34hrs of labor has been exhausting!
Already told FB but for twitter friends... 31hrs into labor and still no kiddo. Just got an epidural (hence updating social media).
Doc said we probably won't deliver until the morning. 80% effaced, but only 1cm dilated, so I swapped the hospital gown for my own nightgown and feel 10x more human! It's gonna be a long night, might as well get comfortable.
This is my between contractions face, but now in "active" labor. Will move us out of triage and into a delivery room soon.
Thanks guys! Probably can't tweet much longer. Contractions are 3:45 apart and getting intense. Will FB longer though. LOL
It's baby go time. Let's do this!
Little man isn't here, yet, but he already has a protector. Does she hear both of our heartbeats?
I REFUSE to accept this. Cc @brittanbright (best gifts ever, thank you! Even if I fundamentally disagree with modern science)

Buying yard stuff. Can't get everything I want though because there's no way I'm bending over to plant bulbs right now.
Found in the yard earlier today. :)

And now for some fetal monitoring... we get to do this weekly until he's born or shows some serious weight gain. They gave me a button to push whenever he moves. It looks like an "eject" button for the chair.
This is happening right now. Baby is measuring 35 weeks and 5lbs 1oz and we're 35 weeks and 5 days along. A little small, but hopefully doc says all good.
Last stroller pic: important operating instruction. Miss this step and you shouldn't have had a kid!
@bradcornelius has his priorities in order. ;)
THIS is why we got this stroller. As small as the carrier after a single button push--@bradcornelius is in love.
We do have this giant thing in the backyard bursting with color. What is it?
The neighbors have gorgeous tulips coming in and lush grass. We need to figure out this whole owning a yard thing, but I'm happy to pay someone until after the baby comes since there's so much happening right now.
Mentally and physically spent. I wish my body let me take naps, but brainlessly sitting outside in gorgeous weather will have to do.
how have your clients implemented these types of social features on-site? How resource-intensive is it?
how do you track the performance of Twitter card implementation on-site? What kind of changes have you seen after implementation?
Yup. Loving @MatthewGerrior
