I've never been ordained, but...

...somehow I became a father.

D-Day (June 6) became a day of new life for us rather than a day of many deaths.

So far, all is well.

Don't forget to live before you die.

Congratulations, Ted!

I will enjoy some Glenfarclas in your honor! The question becomes whether to enjoy some 12yo or 25yo.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

Yeah, I've been posting here at odd times because of it. Somehow we got lucky in that she came right at the end of the school year (works out perfectly with our jobs).

Girl. Her first and middle initials add up to GG. She was 21 inches, which is the longer side of average.

She doesn't cry almost at all; just sorta makes little gentle vocalizations when she's hungry or needs a diaper change. Otherwise she just plays or sleeps.

She's already able to push herself across the floor, dragging her torso like the way a military man would if he was trying to stay under gunfire, sometimes saying what sounds like "at" when she pushes with her feet. I have to keep a pretty close watch on her because of that.

Don't forget to live before you die.

She was only a day old for that one; we were still at the hospital. Something tells me she's going to be very pretty, but that actually makes me worry more than it makes me happy. I can remember what it was like to be a single guy around single gals. In a few years I'll have to greet everyone at the door with a shotgun in hand.

For now she's just chillin' here in my lap, staring up at me and reaching for my elbow. Might be time for a bottle. I'll probably get a bottle for the baby too.

BTW, K_R, go with the 12, which is already good. Save the 25 for when she has a milestone or graduates from something. Or, if you reeeeally want the 25, have just one, then if you need a second, go with the 12.

Don't forget to live before you die.

You know what they say....

When you have a boy, you only have to worry about one little prick, but when you have a girl you have to worry about all the little pricks in the neighbourhood.....

Congratulations, this one's for you:

Congratulations Ted, great init

You wait until you have grandchildren, it's even better. You get to just give them back when you're done playing with them.

Finished your Mountain Dew and Cocoa Puffs honey? Are you still playing with the "clang, clang" monkey?

Clank, Klank, Clang, Clang... sounds like someone beating a spoon on a pot..... Great fun! Grandpa gets those from Germany just for you.... yes we do...

Hey, mommy is here. Don't forget "clang clang" monkey. Here's a pack of Sweet-tarts for the road....

Been offline for a few days, I'm now using some open wireless network I found floating around or I certainly would've posted earlier.

Congratulations! Everybody says it but it really is true: Enjoy every moment of it because they grow up so fast!

Give her a hug and a kiss from us

oh - and she can't be more beautiful than Rachel because she's the most beautiful little girl in the world already. No I'm not biased. Your girl would surely be #2 though.

Keep that shotgun close (but not as close as her and certainly not at the same time.)

Jesus loves you [yes, you] so much, he even died for you so that you will not need to die, but live forever

Thank you all for your kind replies.

She can't really talk yet, but she does sorta try to communicate. She gets hick-ups from time to time. The video isn't really all that exciting, but nonetheless cute. Baby and mommy are both doing well.




I opened a new youtube account for this because of family requests, but I didn't attach the account to anything, as I don't agree with Google's privacy policies.

silliness; she pretends to read, although she still can't talk yet

anything she says is strictly out of coincidence for now

She is really just adorable. I had to say it. Grandpa ROH wants to feed her ice cream and spoil the crap out of her. I'm sure her daddy will do just fine though. She is gonna teach you things you might not want to know, but she is your daughter, and you'll find out that is a bond beyond undoing. I am absolutely sure she will give you gray hair. It's a good trade. Your daughter will come out a decent woman, and you'll come out a better man. How in the hell do you beat that?

She is too cute. Makes me feel all grandpa and paternal. Aww.... I'd be twisted around her finger. Instant grandpa patsy. Grandpa ROH would give you anything if it made you smile.. yes we would... Babies without having to clean up the puke. Getting old isn't so bad some days....

About as close as I come to this thread... I've been out of the daddy business for 10 years or so... I have a new grand niece. Her name is Lain. Too cute to be the daughter of my nephew. Must have been the milk man.
