Nathan Clark Strellman was born 3:00am on 9/9/10 weighing 4.200 kg (9.2 pounds)

Nathan (means gift of God) was a bonus after we had given up on 3 and decided 2 were enough.
Lewis and Clark led the expedition to find a land route across North America to the Pacific, making it to Oregon and back.

Luiza woke up at 1:50am because Kevin came in and wanted to get in our bed.
In the bathroom she noticed that the contractions were 10 minutes apart.
She woke me at 2:05am and we left the house at 2:15am
We drove to Telki hospital in the pouring rain, making the 45 minute trip in 20.

A man came to the front desk, telling us to have a seat and a nurse would come soon. Here we had been risking our lives to get there and other people were not in as big a hurry. At 2:45am the nurse took us up the elevator to the second floor and asked Luiza to sit down and fill out a form in English. Her water broke and the contractions were 3 minutes apart. (I don’t need a form I need to push!!!) Then we went to the birth room and the head was showing. A doctor came and things got busy.
