    I'm now a dad

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by PipeandPen, Nov 28, 2008.

    On November 20th, 2008 at 07:56 (AM Eastern Time), my son, Malachi Alexander was born via C-section. He was 9lbs 9oz and 23 3/4 inches long. It's exhilerating and tiresome. Hopefully, he'll start sleeping at night pretty soon and I can get some time to write. I have found that reading is an easy way to stay awake during the day while he sleeps.

    Congratulations! Soon you will nostalgically look back upon the phenomenon known as "sleep."

    someplace that isn't actually a place but actually
    I've had a low key experience of what it must be like to be a parent. My parents had their second child (my sister!!) when I was 11. It was ridiculous. She's a great kid, and it's pretty fun growing up with young ones.

    P.S. Hope the wife fared well in C Section. My mom was on so many drugs she can't remember the first 3 days after my sister's birth. Maybe not a bad thing! Hah!

    Thanks for all the kind words. It took me a while, but I've finally found our online hospital pictures.

    He manages to look angelic in nearly all the pics.

    That'll change! *Sadistic fellow parent laughter*

    Sorry. :D
