I'm a Dad!!
I just wanted to brag about my new baby daughter. Ariel Jensine Adams was born 5 weeks early on 8/7/07 at 1:28pm. She weighed in at 6lbs 8oz and was 19" long. Beating all the odds, she went home from the hospital yesterday after only 2 days.

Awww she's so pretty! Congrats! And I'm glad she was able to come home so soon!
Someone should email you a copy of the Fireman's dating laws, or whatever it was called. You can frame it, and memorize it. One day, it will come in handy!
Is this your first baby?

Congrats! Hope you have a level A suit for those diaper changes!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters.

Now remember, it is the responsibility of every father who has a daughter to purchase a firearm post haste and become exceptionally proficient at using it.

I'd like to thank everyone who responded.
This is the most amazing experience I've ever had! Words can't begin to describe the emotions around bringing a new life into the world.
I wish the best of luck to any other new fathers/mothers out there. As others have said, enjoy every moment!
P.S.- Ariel has a fire truck quilt in her crib and a fire truck blanket that she is swaddled in most of the time.

Many congratulations to you and your wife.
Any baby can make a man a father but a little girl makes you a daddy.
May every other guy in her life have to compete with you forever.
