A Son Is Born!!!!

Postby CKE » Mon May 02, 2005 9:42 pm

Sorry guys this has got to be quick. 18 hrs ago I was up to start the whole prcess with my wife. We got to see our first child, Lucas, this evening. 7lbs 15 oz. I am exhausted and my wife was fast asleep an hour ago at the hospital. Will have more updates soon. Take Care!!!

Keep Fighting the Good Fight!

Congratulations and Good Luck. Sleep is now a valuable quantity.

God Bless you and your wife and first child Craig!

It changes your life for the better by far.

Let me say this: Don't freak out the first week you have Lucas home. I freaked out because we were like "holy cow.....they let us take this baby home......what do we do now?". I worried I wasn't doing things right and we were up every 2-3 hours for feeding. After 2 weeks......it was like normal to us :) I just wished people would have told me this when I was going through it....so I wanted to share this.

Again, God be with you all!

It has been quite a year for you so far! Finishing a course of cancer treatment and now a new son. You are truly blessed.

I second some of Fisher's comments, but would encourage breast feeding. Always the right temperature, portable. It is also worth a few IQ points. Daddys sleep better too. ;)

What a day! Congratulations! I will have a smile on my face for the whole day! :D

As far as being tired is concerned , that is one thing you'll have to get used to as any parents here will confirm. ;)

Good luck!
