The contractions are about 15 minutes apart right now. She said she’d be surprised to make it to lunchtime. Is Baby Matthew coming today?

Update: After having contractions all day long (mostly at home), the doctors broke her water at 10:00pm and Baby Matthew was born at 10:39pm! 21 inches long; 8 pounds 5.8 ounces. The kid is totally chill. He’s hardly cried the whole time, and he seems like he’s just hangin’ out trying to take it all in. Baby and mommy are both healthy, although a bit tired.

Thanks to everyone for all of your support and encouragement you’ve given over the past few months. We’ve really appreciated it. =)
