Orion & Kai's Home Page

Once upon a time, in a cold far away place a baby was born... his name was Orion. These are the accounts of his journey through life on this strange planet. Not too far after that, we headed for the beach! And Kai sailed into our lives...

The New and Improved Berger Fam!

After 14 hours of labor...
21/2 hours of pushing...
1 emergency c-section...
4 days of hospital food (& McDonalds)...
and 5 nights in the Special Care Nursery...
we were ready to get home!
And they were ready to get rid of us as well, at least they were ready to get rid of 2 of us...
The other stole the nurses hearts from day 1.
Thank you to the entire staff of Abbott North Western Hospital, especially the Special Care Nursery you were all awseome!
This is the Fam just before being released on 6/24/2006, and the beginning of our story!

Orion is soooo cute. I can't beleive how much hair he has! And, Sally, you look great - glad to see that you're feeling better. I bet you two are enjoying having your little guy at home. Lots of love to everyone.

A very long time ago there was a product on the super market shelves called "Make A Better Burger". Well, I think you two accomplished that - What a doll! Life's journey truly does begin, and there is much to learn for both Mom, Dad and Orion. Hang on to each other tight, don't forget communication is key to success and definately "pick your battles" wisely with each other and with your son. Sounds cliche but it will go by quickly. Lastly, listen to your moms, they have lots of life experience to share :) Love to all.

Bubbasue? Good god, Orion will be expecting a linebacker for a granny! Can't we soften it to Bubesue? Add sort of a French twist to it? Glad to see you made it into the Blog Sue - FINALLY. :o) Dave and Sally: How you doing? Has sleep become one of the things you realize you took for granted? It will get easier, trust me. Love you.

Dear David and Sally: ALERT - Auntie in Montana needs Orion fix. Please update me on his growth. And how you two doing? Enjoying parenthood? Lack of sleep made you wonder what you do and don't enjoy anymore? Ahh parenting - isn't it grand? Changes every aspect of life as you knew it, huh? Oh well, I would chose do it all over again. Hope all is well with both of you.
