As a seasoned semi-lurker who has received advice from the board on all aspects of boat and life..........
My wife and I had our first child Thursday night at 5:09 PM. Leila Grace (hopefully an OSO member to be) is 7 lbs and 2.3 oz. 20.5 inches long with a head full of hair. Mom and baby are home and healthy after a great pregnency and delivery. God has smiled on my family.
As one who never thought that he wanted to be a father, it was a truly, unbelievably amazing experience.
Thanks to those who helped me through my personal tribulations and trials of summer 2001 and my new engine build and destruction Spring and Summer 2002. OSO is truly an extension of my family, through the good times and the bad........
Wish me luck on the engine rebuild this spring (I hope I have the time) and say a prayer for my liitle girl for a bright future in a better world.
Man, I hope I can make it to Miami for the show
ALL MY BEST...

Mine is two and a half months already. Everyday is awesome.
Enjoy the Holiday Season with the new one!
CONGRAGULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I PRAYED WE WOULD HAVE TWINS AND SURE ENOUGH WE DID,WHAT what a AWESOME LIFE PROCESS AND 18 MONTHS LATER A LITTLE BOY, LOOKED LIKE TRIPLETS, THEY ARE NOW 9,9, AND 8 AND HOW TIME FLYS THEY GROW UP SO FAST ,JUST DON'T LET ANYTHING IN THE WORLD GET IN THE WAY OF SHARING AND BEING THERE FOR THEM. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY/DARIN
This is our first. We were married July 5, 1998.
Congrats to you and your wife. My biggest piece of advice...........epidural, epidural, epidural..My wife lasted 2 hours without it and then begged for it (we had planned on it anyway). It helps conserve energy for the pushing part at the end. Be there and be involved for the delivery. Grab a few books a suprise your wife with things she might not know. The best is "The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy". Read this so you have the total picture (like reading cosmo for the sex tips if you get my drift!).
Congratulations Ken. Being a father and watching your child grow is one of lifes most rewarding experiences. Enjoy.
Maybe we will see you at Chill OUT Sydwayz is putting together.
Now...start saving for college.
