It's 6:21 a.m. right now and Jess and I are both ready to go to the hospital. She is being induced today, supposedly at 7:30am. We have to call at 7am to make sure there is 'room at the inn'. We were woken up by Austin turning on the lights in the hall at 5:05 am and wandering around aimlessly. Still not sure why he decided to wake up so early, but when I tucked him back in bed he said 'Daddy, I hungry again'. That's his new saying. I'm pretty sure he was already asleep by the time his door was shut. After that neither Jess nor I could fall back to sleep so we started getting ready.

It all seems a little surreal to us right now. It's really different from the first two times. Not sure why. Everything is about the same. Jess is being induced like the other two times. We still don't have a name like the other two times. I'm still really nervous like the other two times. Not sure what it is, but it's different and not in a bad way. Just different. Maybe it's because we've already had two and the sense of the unknown has been lost a little bit. We know everything that's going to happen and are probably more prepared this time.

Well, I should probably get going. Hopefully the next post will be full of new baby pictures and details about our hospital stay. Then maybe, just maybe, if we're lucky, there will be a new name somewhere on that post too. Jess still isn't going along with Nike, Espn (pronounced Es-pen) or my new favorite, Diggy. My friends who know my love of the tv show 'Run's House' and who also watch it will understand that last one.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to induction we go................
