What lenses to take to the hospital for the birth of my first child

Assume I am going to take my D800. My current Nikon lenses are
primes: 35 1.8 G - DX (passable on D800), 50 1.4G, 85 1.8G, 180 2.8 AF

zooms: 16-35 F/4 VR, 28-105 AF-D (oldie and not sure I want to use it with D800), 70-300VR

What lens/lenses should I take to the hospital? Should I leave my flash at home? What lenses do I want for the first 6 months to a year of baby's life? This is my first child so I am not sure what to expect.
