    Smile It's a Boy!

    Early this morning I delivered my first baby and it just happened to be my own. No it wasn't planned and I just became an EMT-B.

    Baby Ethan is 8 lbs. 3 oz. and 21 inches. Mom and baby are doing well. I'm going back to the hospital with my in-laws and 2yr. old son. I'll probobly be spending the night and will try to get back with a picture sometime soon.

    Congratulations! That'll be a story he'll tell his grandkids (although his memory of it might be a bit fuzzy)!

    What a blessing to witness the miracle of birth! I can't imagine what it would be like to actually deliver a child - especially my own! What a "gift" indeed!!

    Congrats indeed to your family!!!

    Watching the birth of a child is a wonderful experience, I cannot imagine the thrill of delivering your own.

    Many blessings to Mom, baby, and you.

    Both Baby and Mom are doing great. We only spent one night in the hospital to make sure everything was o.k. Thanks for all the nice thoughts and comments for our family.

    Congrats on the new baby. He will definitely change your life (in a good way). My boy is almost two years old and already has a few lights in his collection. He also knows where daddy's flashlight cabinet is too.

    Congratulations!

    Boys rock -- I've got 3 of them. My 4 year old was climbing up the kitchen doorframe to grab the header. Man, they're all about climb it, jump off it, take it apart.

    I think that's incredibly great that you delivered your own baby. Absolutely amazing. All I did was cut the cord and gasp in amazement at my wife said "no" to the drugs.

    Cool! As if the being a parent part isn't enough of a rush! Nice catch -- looks like a keeper and big enough not to throw back.

    Just keep reminding him to get Mom something nice on his future birthdays since she did the vast majority of the work that day.

    Congrats!
