Fatherhood Begins

I'm finally up for some air.
I can't write too much now as the baby is still waking up here and there needing to fed, changed, etc.
In a few days I plan to write out the whole labor story (it's a doozy).
I can also tell you that this summer will see stories about the pregnancy as well as discussing the class I just attended for the last week (and was almost forced to miss the birth, no less.)
So, until I have a little more time to write, I'll just have to leave you with my favorite picture of my son. It's from a few minutes after his birth.
Namaste.

Just got back from vacation where I celebrated my son's first birthday and my first Father's Day to your fantastic news. Congratulations, Leab. I love how your boy is sucking on his lower lip in that picture! So adorable.

See to me, he just looks like a really old, Jewish grandpa.
"Why don't you kids visit mor often...and get off my lawn!"
I guess I know what my father will look like at 90 (my sister says it's him without teeth).
I should have named him Morty....

They all look like that at birth.

Here's my son on his day of birth, last June 21: http://www.flickr.com/photos/derusha/21160797/

Here he is today:

MORTY will look less elderly soon enough!

CUTE!
If you ever decided you didn't want him, I'd take him!

I freagin' knew it. KNEW IT. Do I win a prize or something?

Many, many congratulations :), he's absolutely beautiful. Is this the part where you get a flickr account like the rest of us? We will, of course, need many many photos of cute baby so we don't actually have to read anything else you write. Kidding. Kidding!

Happy belated father's day!
