I just changed my personal information, which used to say "soon to be a dad".
Pardon me while I tear up just a bit!
Our first child, Finnegan Thomas, was born Friday evening. He is beautiful and wonderful, and I'm learning that I've never understood the word "delight" until now.

Please, don't be offended if I don't respond to anything here in a timely manner; I'm more than a bit occupied helping both my son and my wife.
...and again....

nope, they're still adorable.
besides, that would make him a demon, and he can't reveal that yet.

anywho.

Why have we not yet been given pictures?

Also, awesome! You just went up ten notches on the "must visit" meter! Babies! Woo!

Thanks all! This makes me feel pretty dang special.

For those interested, pics can be found here (http://www.our365.com/NewbornPortraits/BabyDetail.aspx?BirthId=193d0e5a-f7fc-46cf-a052-d31fb93d81e4). It's only four, and those free shots the hospital took, but a real post of snapshots is destined for my wife's Facebook. That's been a bit delayed, though....

We're back in the hospital to deal with some weight loss coupled with moderately severe jaundice. It's nothing dire, but it is does take some additional help for us. We'll be evicted again tomorrow, so perhaps soon...


Congrats, man! I guess I can't make anymore offhanded remarks about children being the spawn of demons XD

Why not? You haven't met me, that I know of. If you had, you'd know I'm most likely to laugh at that.

Aww! He's cute!

Also, you have the awesomest hair ever, and I may yet shave it off and make it into a wig.

Yeah, we're pretty booping happy right now. Thanks, all!

I had longer hair years back and cut it short; when last I heard, all two-and-a-half feet of it had been attached to a handle and moved to California with a female friend-of-a-friend. I didn't ask any more questions, but I'm kinda jealous of my hair.... :smalltongue:

New pics (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/album.php?aid=74740&id=646428252&ref=nf) on my wife's Facebook, for those who like the cuteness. Would that line in Goblins have been better as "It hurts like a cuteness!"?

Let me tell you, he will want to kill you for naming him Finnegan.

So if he snaps and comes after you with a cleaver one day, it's just because of the name.

Anyway, I'll make it a priority to come to your place and pet him.

Congrats mate.

I like little Finn's hat. Blue is a good colour on him. :smallbiggrin:

Now, brace yourself for the waves of Dad Knowledge that will flood your mind.
Lo! You are become master of the secret arts which only fathers know. Open to you are all the ancient lores of bicycle puncture repair, den building, swing-set erection, knowing what that tree is, and telling the best bedtime stories. Feel the power of Dad Knowledge!

Well, I'm 75% there. Waiting for the next upload....

Wait, what about dinosaurs? Aren't dinosaurs IMPORTANT?

@Rose: Whazzat? Why exactly is Finn going to hate me? I'm lost over here.
