    Talking I'm a Dad!!

    Hey everyone,

    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.


    Cheers,
    Craig

    Awesome and Congrats. This is the fourth or fifth baby I've heard of in the past couple weeks. Hopefully mine will be the next one.

    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?

    Good.

    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.

    This is for the express purpose scaring the horny little bastards out there that will be giving you nightmares in about 15 years.

    Yeah I know Sheri. At her latest appointment the Doc said he may be Breech. So we gotta head to the hospital on sunday morning, do a non-stress test followed by an ultrasound to see if he is. Go from there then. I hope he comes out soon, I can't wait.

    Craig;

    I remember when my first child (a daughter) was that size. Today she has 8 of her own !! So as others have stated... enjoy them while you can. Before you know it she'll be grown.

    Congrats!

    Take care, and be SAFE

    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!


    Sincerely,
    -Craig

    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.

    On second thought, never mind
    Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)

    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.
