i'm a daddy . . .
We're all really quite tired right now, so I'm going to have to keep this brief (although, as tramatic an event as it was for me, my experience was like a day at the beach compared to Steph's). Jacob William Van Dyk was born on November 23, 2005 at 11:13 PM (47 minutes before Thanksgiving -- what a thing to be thankful for). He weighed 8 pounds, 15 ounces, and was 21-1/2" long when he was born. We all came home yesterday, and he promptly (as in, within 5 minutes of getting in the door) peed all over the floor -- takes after his daddy, that kid. Anyway, things are going pretty well, although I am now beginning to understand why people characterize new parents as members of "the sleepless zombie club". It's a good thing that both Nana and Oma are so supportive. Anyway, I'll keep you posted, but right now I think I'm going to take a nap. Click here for more information, some pictures, and some video.
