Welcome to the world, Rachael

My apologies to folks expecting sports commentary, but in the grand scheme of things, sports are just a (usually) fun diversion from the more important things in life. Today is one of those days I'll always remember, with the birth of my beautiful baby daughter Rachael, born this morning at 7:59 am to my even more beautiful wife. For those folks scoring along at home, she came in at 8 lbs. 6 ounces and 22 inches. Good vocal cords too!

Right now all is well here with mother and daughter. Gramma is pretty happy as well. Needless to say, this is one of those life changing moments, and only God knows where this new adventure will take us. Others who have kids tell us it is one of the most amazing events they've experienced, and the first few minutes have seemed that way so far.
