I haven't posted before now because frankly we didn't know if he would be ok but, on the 14th of November my son was born!!!
It's thought-provoking that he was born on the 14th, the day after BarefootJedi's mom passed. Makes you think about life, what it means, and really evaluate who we are and why we're here, where we came from, and where we're going, and how short our time here really is.
He came two months early, so he is still in a neonatal intensive care unit at the hospital, but he's now breathing on his own and is growing slowly. He's regained 3 oz, and is the cutest kid you ever saw.
All my friends and family are all joking that I'll finally have someone to share my GI Joes with. I make sure to let them know that he'll get his own, but I'm not sharing mine
My kids are only 11.5 months apart, which will be a lot of fun I'm sure.
For any believers here, please pray for my wife and I, as it is getting hard balancing everything right now (daughtor at home, baby boy in the hospital, trying to go back and forth and inbetween). Fortunately we have a wonderful family and great church family that has really helped us out a lot.
Anyhow, not sure why, but I thought I would share.

congrats. and that is why I'm glad I had a girl last month...nobody has any illusions about my sharing army figures with her.
and every time I think of a child being born, I get that same Luca Brazi line in my head.
