Sorry I've been away. I've just become a dad. :-)

I hope Mother and Baby are doing well and let's all hope that he/she grows up to be a happy, healthy, conservative!

Thanks for sharing the news with us!

Mike D,

My most heartfelt congratulations!! Good job on bringing a child into this world. Nothing like the beauty of a child that's your own. If your child is anything like you, and I'm sure he/she is, then you will have many years of joy mentoring/coaching your child into adulthood. We need more Patriots in this nation, and I'm sure yours will be one. Again, good job and congratulations.

He is happy and healthy, 9 lbs. 3 oz. at birth, 21 in. tall, and a 15 in. head circumference. Sorry about that, wifey!

Although I will let him choose his own philosophical and ideological path, I will attempt to instill the same morals, independent thought, and critical thinking skills my father instilled in me. In theory, this should make him more Conservative than Liberal. ;-)

Congratulations. You will have insurmountable joy from your child and eventual grandchildren. I mention them because you will think they came tomorrow.

Enjoy your boy, because he will not be one long enough.

Enjoy them while their little, they grow up way to fast. Hope mother and child are doing well.

Being a father is perhaps our greatest responsibility and joy, so enjoy every minute.

Thank you for the thread and the kind words, all. I'm looking forward to every minute of it!
