Funny Foto Friday: I'm a dad!

Ok, not a FUNNY foto friday post, but I'm too sleep deprived to sort through all of my funny pictures to find one too proud to post anything else.

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!!!

Just under 24 hours old Friday morning

Around 5 hours old (I'm not yet sleep deprived)

1 hour old? (At most)
