Sara Levine: Even better

8:26 PM

Dad Levine: Wuzzup?

Josh Levine: Christas still doing the potty dance as the nurses are still tied up. She's actually fine (and the time makes zachy easier to pop out when she pushes), but she is ready to go and no ones here yet. She's passing the time napping. We checked in and the nurses said they'd be available soon.

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Strength again and much love

Josh Levine: Now were starting

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Thank god

Sara Levine: Woohoo! Get him the hell outta that uterus!

Dad Levine: It's baby time👶

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Amen to that

Josh Levine: Saw a little bit of the head a moment ago and then he went back

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Come back Zachary How's sissy

Dad Levine: Tell him it's time already

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Glad you are there josh.

Sara Levine: I'd be a little concerned if he weren't there...

Josh Levine: I'm holding a leg, counting for the pushing and texting between contractions. There's no law about not texting between contractions is there?

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Well spoken peter. From grandmas

Dad Levine: It's required in 2014

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: This is multitasking

Dad Levine: That's how Josh rolls

Josh Levine: Last couple of contractions I held both legs and counted for her while the nurse did paperwork :-)

Sara Levine: Haha

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Yeah do we have Zachary

Dad Levine: We're watching a really good John Cusack movie

Sara Levine: Say Anything. Good one!

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: That was the time from dad Steve

Sara Levine: ?

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Is a cool car peter born 911! A good omen

Josh Levine: 1:05 into pushing. Still being a little stubborn, but everything is going normally. Christa is a little tiered but says this is way easier than contractions

Marcia Dryjanski-Ward: Stay strong. We love and are behind you

Dad Levine: We're with you
