Hey all,
Thanks for your well wishes in the earlier Thanksgiving thread, and I also send my best wishes and congratulations to Hilltopper for his new baby!

Jacob Niles Kirchner came into this world at 1:09am on November 22 (yes, Thanksgiving morning) after a long harrowing journey. He weighed 8lbs 11oz, and was 22 inches long! Whew! Mom and baby are doing great, although we are still in the hospital (hoping to go home tomorrow) due to the unplanned C-section. Let's just say it was very stressful for Dad, but thankfully they are both fine.

I'll certainly post some watch-related pictures later when I have time, but here are a couple for now to introduce the kid. He's hilarious, and the cutest little thing ever!

Thanks for all the support! This forum is great :-!

Very exra Thankful,
Daniel

Thanks everyone--the kid is hilarious. That first picture is what he was like just out of the OR while he and I waited (over an hour!:-() for his mom. He was lit, and ready for the world!

I'm sure he can't wait to meet Lucille when we are down in the Philly area, and any of the other numerous Kobold babies out there.

OK, back to drinking water, naps, and picking up the takeout Thai food in between trips home for the dog...

Daniel

I was just on the Panerai forum. What kind of strap is that in your baby's first picture? Looks like a bar code? I must get one! :-d:-d:-d







Just kidding. What a cute baby.|> Enjoy life. Troy

Finally, another boy! It seems that ever since my son Paul came into the fold almost a year ago that everyone is adding girls to the ranks of future Kobolders. Daniel, he's beautiful -- congratulations to you and your wife. I'd tell you what a wonderful experience becoming a father is, but words don't do it justice. Of course, you probably know that already... ;-)

I look forward to introducing our "boys" one of these days.

Regards,
Adam

Well done Daniel

I know exactly what you mean about the 'unplanned C-section'. I was in your shoes two years ago when our little one arrived. Lets just say that two years down the track she still keeps us on our toes:-d

You will love being a dad. Just remember they really do grow up quick so enjoy and make the most of every minute you can with him.

Kids everywhere! Ahhh!!!!! Apparently Kobolds are not a very effective form of birth control...they're more like a fertility drug! Hopefully my wife & I can buy a little more time before my SOA works its magic and we become as blessed as the rest of you. We "plan" on trying next year, after I finish grad school.

In all seriousness, a hearty congratulations to all of you! Jacob's tongue shot is priceless!
