On Thursday morning, my wife and I welcomed my son into the world. He was 6 pounds 7 oz and was 19" long. When I told my grandfather the details of the birth, he immediately said "Ohhhh, a little guy. Probably going to be a runner." I responded that he might be, but if not that is okay too. (You know, he might be a triathlete for all I know ;)
From what I can tell he likes sleeping, watching his parents, and cat calling the new-born girls in the nursery. His dislikes are letting his parents sleep and being naked - the latter of which I am sure will change when he turns 2 and starts to "realize" that he has an additional appendage.
I wanted to personally thank everyone who has contacted me via email, facebook, twitter, or even via posts on their blog. (Literally tearing up as I type this.) I am overjoyed by the outpouring of well wishes by people that I have (in most cases) never met face to face however still consider friends. We all share our lives online....happy times, sad times, and the times that we wish never happened. I am happy to share this aspect with all of you. Thanks again, friends.
Apologies for my lack of internet presence over the next few days, however I will get caught up over the coming days. Enjoy your weekend. Run a few miles for me!!!
