On Friday, January 11 at 12:59 PM, my life was irreversibly changed.
My son Ben — all 10 pounds, 4 ounces, and 22 inches of him — joined our family.
I cannot describe the feeling of seeing him for the first time. And I cannot express enough the gratitude for my wife who carried him for over 40 weeks and labored for 20 hours to bring him here. I am eternally in her debt, and I will try — pitifully — to pay her back for th rest of my life.
I still plan to update this blog, but understand that if I go a long time without saying anything, I’m joyfully preoccupied.
