The Best Christmas Present!

At 10:30am December 24th, my wife gave birth to our first child. A daughter. Josephine Lorrayne. 7lb 9.5oz. We're elated. Mommy and baby will be coming home tomorrow at which point we'll continue with Christmas. haha

I forgot the camera back at the hospital but i'll get a few pictures up tomorrow. Just thought i'd let everyone know.

Merry Christmas Everyone. And Happy Holidays!

Re: The Best Christmas Present!

Thanks everyone. It's exciting... frustrating haha 2am feedings... 4am feedings... BUT!!!

The story gets even better! Beth was in the hospital for Christmas day so we said that we would open presents and all those typical activities when we went home... In the mean time i'm talking to her parents... they have presents for us and the baby... yada yada yada... we don't want to bother you while your getting to figure out the baby. Can you leave the door open and we'll just drop the stuff off... I did.
The three of us come home yesterday afternoon... get the baby settled and sit down to open some Christmas gifts... We open the ones that are from each other first and then open the ones from her parents.
While we're exchanging and opening the ones from each other I notice that her parents had given us a rather large looking gift. Beth and I exchange our last presents and see said there should be one more under the tree for you from me. I have a look... nothing. We opened them all, I say. She says... "Oh yeah that's right! It's that big one! And shoots me "that" smile.

I walk over and start start unwrapping it and notice the top of the box... I'm Like "huh?"



I know she knows that i'm a huge Petrucci/Dream Theater fan... and have mentioned that I wanted an EBMMJP... But c'mon!



Yes... I may well have the best wife on the planet! haha





It's been an amazing Christmas.
Happy Holidays everyone!
