I had a baby on September 4! His name is Jesse Talus Martin Miles.
On the evening of September 3, Gray and I went to see Sam play at Il Motore here in Montreal. It was I think the first stop of his North American tour. I was a week past the date the baby was predicted to be born and I was sick of being pregnant. Plus, there was a heat wave going on. I was pretty uncomfortable and going to see Sam play seemed like an ideal way to distract me from the frustration.
So we sat in the venue listening to the opening act. Gray drank a Moosehead beer and I drank a cranberry juice with soda. Then my water broke. Before Sam went on! We had to leave in a hurry. I went into pretty full-on labor only a couple hours later and the baby was born just before 9 a.m. the following morning.
So, thanks Sam, for providing the venue for me to start labor. Also, the heat wave ended that night.
Jesse is doing great! I would post a photo but I’m kind of exhausted and actually I’m going to go to bed right now because the baby is sleeping and now’s my chance!
