A baby girl! - 30 replies
Yesterday morning at 8:50 AM EST, I became the proud papa of a healthy 6 lb 12oz baby girl! My head hasn’t caught up with reality yet and the wife still has the camera, so I don’t have any pictures to post … yet. It’s our first and we’re still feeling overwhelmed. Sigh :-)
