    WOW! My wife and I are so excited...she delivered baby RAM just after dinner time this evening. He weighed 8 pounds, 10 ounces, and was 21 inches long.:D

    I'm tired...40 straight hours with no sleep, half of which was spent in the labor and delivery room...sheesh!
  2. Thats great, man! :hyper:

    Congrats man, that's wonderful!

    Your tougher than I. My wife has a friend that also went 40 some-odd hours in labor. I really think I would have hurt a doctor before then. Hell, I barely made 12 with my daughter :eek:

    I'm such a dork...I didn't look at who started this thread, and I actually thought somebody got a baby ram as a pet, or bizarre home security or something. :oops: I'll take that as I sign I should go to sleep.

    Knew that was comming.:)

    I can relate on two fronts:
    1. My Wife is due with our 2nd Boy in about two months. (Scary! Another one like #1 in my Avatar?!?)
    2. I just traded in my 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab on a 2004 Dodge RAM 1500 Quad Cab with the 5.7 V8 HEMI (And lowered my payment. I just couldn't resist the 0% interest.:p ).

    Congrats on your new RAM.:hyper:

    Thank you all very much!

    Baby RAM - his first name is Spencer. He'll go by Baby RAM, though.:p

    I was thinkin' about the Hemy...my wife won't let me teach him how to drive yet...soon enough, right? :hyper:

    I think I've figured out how to pay for college, already. If I get him started golfing at age 3, the way Michelle Wie and Tiger Woods got started... :help: :rollno: :D

    I'm off to the hospital to see wife and baby. :hyper:
  11. Hey mucho congratulations there, Daddy Ram! :)

    I'd say your wife should get a little credit too. :D (ladies, please don't kill me)

    A long, healthy and successful life to your new son.

    Mike ;)

    Daddy-RAM, congradulations to you and Mommy-RAM!!! (She did all the HARD work, she deserves a bit more than a "little credit" Mike! :p)

    Welcome to the world, Spencer, make sure to ask dad to let you try out his Jerzy Drozd as soon as you get home!


    BTW, I'm feelin' a trip to Addison Av. this summer, think mom will let you out of the cage for a game? Got a buddy at US Music/Eden that lives about 6 blocks from Wrigley that is invitin' me up to hang for a weekend, I'm lookin' at August....

    Atleast you gave him a decent first name. I swear some people are NUTS when they name their kids. Jason Scott Lee from Mallrats named his kid Pilot Inspektor :eyebrow: . Gwyneth Paltrow named her son Apple :scowl: . Germaine Jackson named his kid Germajesty. Why didn't Germaine just tattoo "beat me up" on his kid's forehead?

    I met this girl in Coushatta who's name his Female (rhymes with tamale). We asked her why her name is Female. She said her parents saw the birth certificate and thought the nurses had already named her :meh: . I know it's harsh, but some people should be sterilized.

    Congrats.......... is this your first?

    Remember, nothing you do in life will be more important than being Spencer's dad.

    It took having 2 girls of my own to fully realize that. I know that when my life is done absolutely nobody will care how many cars I sold. Kids are your legacy. Good luck. Enjoy!!!! :)
