Congratulations. He's a handsome lad.

blackdiamond, congrats man, very cute baby.   Congrats to you and mommy.  Is this your first baby?  Also happy father's day.

This is our first.  It was quite a process.  My wife's water broke at home starting the approx. 24 clock to get him out.  He was born after 24 hours at the hospital.  Every effort was made to avoid the c-section, but it was a blessing and became the best option in the end.  I'm an anti-needle sort of guy so I impressed people by watching them sew her up while holding Simon.

That would be funny except that it took IVF this time so for us the means to an end is a different operation.

Here's a couple pictures with his monkey named Luis after our IVF doctor.  Luis was "born" the same day so they will always be the same age.

We're finally home.  It's been a long time since Saturday night when we left.  Hospitals are somewhat beyond time, some other dimension.  Just glad we were there for a happy event.
