He's probably going to look like a baby.

If he looks like something else, you've been had, and there's a bunch of raptors sitting in the guard room snickering.

Yaaay! Congrats! Post pics? Send cigars to everyone on the forum?

I wish it was appropriate to dump gatoraid on new fathers. Maybe new mothers too. Not the babies though, they just got out of being floaty like. And it sure beats amniotic fluid!

So, I got tired of the fact that the appearance of my band name in my signature made my posts on this forum the dominant result when googling for my music. Anyway, if you think I might happen to be a good musician, you can test this theory here.

One of the primary responsibilities of a parent is to completely spoil that child. These are rules delivered by a grandfather (me). Spoil that child! If you don't, someone else will. :D

My son was born at 7:23AM on Friday, January 18, at 8 pounds 6 ounces (for some reason we don't use metric for such things still in Canada).

The delivery was a little rough, but both he and Kerry are doing well. I'm just home briefly to shower and take a nap, but I had to post this here.

He's surprisingly strong. He has tries to push himself up on the first day, and actually managed to raise his body a bit.

I miss him a lot, even though I just left, and I can't wait to get back, but I also think sleeping is a good idea.

Next time I check the internet it will be when I'm home with my son.

This does feel super weird, but at the same time, wow, and he's just wow, and amazing.

Meconium is damn hard to clean up. I also think I figured out why parents don't seem to mind changing diapers that much, you're too busy worried about how stressed the kid is over it (at least at first) to notice how gross it is.

Strange how in one picture he wears a hat and the other picture is so fuzzy. Almost as if... zenten doesn't want us to see the boy properly? But why? He's in a hat...
