New BF member, born 01.04.2008!

Well... on Jan 4th, my daughter, Eris Jasmine was born at 12:55am weighing in at 5lbs 7ozs and 18" in length! She's a little early to the party but that's okay. She was originally due on about Jan 22nd.

The funny part is that I almost missed the birth. I dropped off my wife at the ER, parked the car at 12:43am and walked into the room with the baby's head already out! I yelled WAAAIIITTT!!! and ran to my wife's side to welcome the rest of my daughter into the world at 12:55am!

Wife and baby are doing great as is her big sister Ariel, 6yo, who is excited to finally see her lil' sis!

Ah, yes, the world of little sleep and dirty diapers!! And if memory serves me correct I didn't like changing diapers back then either! hehe!

Just wanted to share... (since the wife and baby are asleep)

The newbie...


Mommy, Ariel and baby...


Eris and I...


NeCrO and his expectant wife w/ the family...

I figured the story was going to go more like that.

Congratulations, Gary!

Nah, if I did that I'd be in the hospital too! One, because I'm in no shape to go up Diablo, and two, my wife would kill me right after she had the baby! haha!

Thanks everyone!!

Congrats, Gary! You have a beautiful family and you can see how glowing your wife and older one is!

Oh and of course Daddy is shining ever so brightly as well...

Glad to see she had an easy delivery! She looks so good for JUST having a baby. My friends always looked all tore up after.
