The day Grip was born (August 30), the Ballard Swedish childbirth center had _seven_ kids come (five were delivered by Dr. White!), a record for them. For the first time ever, they had to bump a set of new parents out of the childbirth suites. That was us. We got moved that night down to a dumpy little room on the floor below. I slept on the floor on an air mattress. Luckily, I had a baby to sleep with, so I hardly noticed.
