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.

Congrats Matt and Steph on your new family. Aunt Jo is right -- enjoy this baby time (even the sleepless parts!) while you can. It all goes by so fast and before you know it, you'll be wondering when that 20-year-old son is gonna move out of your house!

Take care. Kathleen (Things I've Seen)

Matt and Steph - way to go!

Not only are you now members of "the sleepless zombie club", but you are also members of the "time does not exist outside of babyland club"! There really is a whole world full of events taking place outside your house, but for now - who cares! Enjoy your new little dude. He is way too cute!
