It was just a regular Saturday night, LK and I spent it running some errands and hanging out. No big deal. I had plans to go 4-wheeling with some friends the next morning.
As we called it a day, LK and I were talking about Nixon’s due date (which was still over a month away), and I joked that I thought he will come ‘tomorrow’. LK laughed, “he better not!”.
4AM I get nudged out of my beauty sleep, “Mark, I think my water just broke!”. Funny thing is that I just hopped out of bed and grabbed my camera, fed the cat, gabbed all of LK’s stuff like it was a regular routine.
Here’s a video on our drive to the hospital. You can tell it hasn’t totally sunk in what was about to happen!
Yep, that’s AM. Rise and shine!
Vitals looking good.
I have no idea who she is talking to at 4:45AM
Not our best look, but it represents! I am so glad I started on my dad beard when I did!
LK is trying to figure out what is about to happen here…
In a matter of minutes, they swooped up LK and brought me in. I still can’t believe how fast everything happened!
What was that??
LK’s first look! I managed to get an awesome video of this, too.
LK got to hold him for was felt like a way too short amount of time.
Nixon’s first of many spit bubbles.
After that, I got to carry Nixon to his unit in the NICU. Being over a month early, they wanted to keep him there for a little while. Hopefully we’ll get him out of there today!

Proud dad. Self-portrait.
LK is off to her room.
Happy Birthday Nixon Mario Cafiero! You are a good looking feller!
