  • I'm a Daddy!

    It's official - I am now a Daddy! :yea: My wife went into labor Thursday Morning and after close observation, an 'emergency' cesarean section was done yesterday, Friday, October 13, 2006.

    This is our first child, which means the name "Disneyland Daddy" is no longer an anticipatory name, but a real thing now!

    My son, named Grant Michael, was born @ 11:52am @ UCI Medical Center in Orange, CA. He weighed 6 lbs, 4 oz and was 18 inches long.

    I don't have pictures yet, but I think he's the greatest thing in the whole wide world!

    After was born and cleaned up and such, they wrapped him up like a little burrito and handed him to me. I just lost it - yup, I cried a bit. But there I was - standing there in scrubs, holding my brand new son! I took him over and showed him to my crying wife - and I got to take him to the nursery as they 'sewed' her up.

    Wife is doing well and our little boy - ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. And he's perfect example that Friday the 13th is NOT a bad luck day!

    Thanks to all for your well wishes and such during these last days of the pregnancy!

    I'll have pictures soon!

    Let me be the first to say, "GRATZ!" (short for congrads or congrats or...too early for spelling, but you get the drift!)

    That is truly wonderful. And, as he gets older, you can go to the park not so much for yourself, but as a family! It all works out!

    Peace to you and your wife and son!

        congratz on your new son, you are in for the time of your life. you will get less sleep, have less spending money, less privacy, go to restraunts that serve meals in a box, stay up late wondering why they do not come home on time...ect ect, but if I had to do it all over again I would not change a thing.

        The best advice on children is enjoy every second you have with them.

                    Congratulations! So glad your screen name is correct now!
                    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,

                                  Congratulations, and how exciting! My son's birth is still very recent for me, but I'll never, ever forget it. Don't forget that everything you do for Mom now, including cooking and diaper changes, scores major points in helping mom!

                                  One thing you may find helpful in a month or two is Boot Camp for New Dads -- at least I did. I found it so helpful that I returned four times as an instructor!
