    Who would've thought that 9 months could go by so fast, but one afternoon could take a lifetime? My wife and I have wanted a child for years and today our wishes were granted.

    So without further ado, I'd like to introduce you all to my son, Benjamin. :D :D :D

    Here he is, experiencing the world for the very first time!

    This is Benjamin and me. The duck bill is hiding my ear to ear grin. :D

    I've never believed in love at first sight, until today.

    That kid has a helluva set of lips on him. Steven Tyler doesn't deliver your milk by any chance does he? :ninja:

    Well, I have to say I find newborn babies to be pretty gross. But, hey, I want to have kids one day too. Won't my wife be ecstatic when the baby arrives and I say "ew! newborn baby! gross!"

    Congratulations man :) I hope that this kid is everything you could have wanted and more.

    Yea, just wait until you hold your first child. All that "It looks like a lizard!" stuff flies right out the window. :)

    With his lips and lung power, we just might have a brass or woodwind player here. :) Makes sense considering the wife and I both played sax earlier in our lives.

    Actually I named him after Benjamin Franklin, arguably one of the greatest Americans to ever have lived.

    :D

    I probably should be enjoying my last full night of sleep tonight. I'm just so wound up that sleeping is the last thing on my mind.

    I do have my priorities straight though. I knew if I didn't get my practice in this morning I wouldn't do any playing today! :)

    Oh, look! A tiny human!

    Not named after me!? Pheh! Benjamin Franklin wasn't so hot. Sure, he invented the modern stove, was a founding father, discovered electicity... but he had gout. Haha! Take that! Not so great now, are you, Benjamin Franklin!
