Well, friends: the baby is on his way. The Wife and I are heading out to the hospital to grow our family by 33% (squeal!).

As I warned you, this may impact you in a small, but tangible way. Namely, I won’t be around for a day or two or three. I won’t promise that you won’t see me posting something later today while we wait at the hospital, or tomorrow while the baby is (theoretically) sleeping – I just don’t want to promise that I will be posting.

In the meantime, please feel free to use this post for your commenting pleasure – and I’d be much obliged if you’d post any breaking news or rumors in the comments, so folks who are inclined to check them can benefit from your efforts.

Thanks in advance for your well-wishes, and I’ll see you soon.

    I know that you will be very busy, but…
    I have a project for you…
    at some point go shopping and buy a couple of periodicals from the month, or day of each of your childrens birth. You will all love loking back on it in the future. You should get some tech magazines, Time magazine, Sports Illustrated, and of course a Cub scorecard from the day of his birth (lets just hope we get a meaningless win).
    My wife is my best part, and these were her ideas, glad we did it now. She also takes a picture of each of my girls at every holiday. She buys a holiday frame at the end of each season and puts them individualy in a frame. The holidays are really that much better every year now when we get out all of the pictures from way back, and can see their incredible changes. Time goes by VERY VERY fast. Cherish each day!!!!
