The new baby is home!! St.Patty's Day is his B-Day!!

Well,we're home! On St. Pat's Day, 4:50 pm my wife gave birth to a healthy 8lb 13oz baby boy!! I'm now the proud father of 2 boys...the other is almost 3.

He's so cute I can't stand it! My other son weighed 20 oz less, and looked much more alien-like!! That extra fat sure makes him a good snuggler!!!

Just thought I'd share the good news.

Congratulations, Fed. St. Patrick's Day is a good day for a birthday. (I was born on St. Patrick's Day also.) Glad to hear that everyone is doing fine. Post pics when you can of both of your little ones.
