I can never reset this now


I went to set my alarm clock for the first time since Stellan was born, and discovered that the stopwatch, which we had been using to time Emily’s contractions, has been running since, well, the beginning of Emily’s contractions. This photo is already out of date; as I post this it’s up to 1,027 hours and 35 minutes.

(This also means we have a record of the contractions themselves — they started out less than two minutes apart, and stayed right there for the two hours it took for us to decide it was time to go to the hospital. Fun times.)
