Baby watch ends...

Our baby watch is finally over!! After 3.5 hours of labor, Campbell Avery Depken was born on May 21, 2004 at 12:10 Central Daylight Savings Time. Campbell weighed in at 6lbs 12oz and 19.5 inches. She is, of course, beautiful. Mom and baby are doing fine and come home on Sunday.

Campbell is a lucky girl. She was born in the greatest country in the history of the world and during the most exciting of times, given anticipated technological and sociological advancements. Actually, the word "luck" is not appropriate. In the twentieth century, my wife's grandparents and my great grandparents decided to get on a boat, the former from Belgium and the latter from Sweden. Those decisions, frought with uncertainty and risk, have now culminated in the latest addition to the Depken-D'hoore clan. What an amazing gift Campbell's forefathers gave her. I hope she grows to appreciate and live up to it.

Campbell's slightly unlucky. Her Dad doesn`t know anything about Scotland so he doesn`t realise Campbell is a boy`s name. Ah well, he`s been wrong about everything else.
