I know this is off topic but many of you have known me for years, either on this site or in person. Just wanted to share the news that my wife and I brought a new little coaster rider into the world today :) I'll be back riding Jr. Gemini in no time. He came a few weeks early, but is doing fine! I'll post a link to pics soon.
While I have no kids myself, I do have an awesome little nephew. It is so exciting watching them grow up. They learn to craw, their teeth come in (and then bite you), they start making sounds (ones that don't involve tears), learn to walk (and get into anything and wear you right the hell out) and eventually how to talk (although my nephew isn't quite there). It is very exciting, but it seems to go by so fast. Value the time you have with him during these stages! *** Edited 10/25/2006 4:48:27 AM UTC by Infamy***
Thanks man :) I've been a uncle for 2 years also and I totally agree with everything I said. It's also fun to take kids to parks. I went with my little niece to CP in June and spent more time with her in the kiddie area than on the coasters...it was a blast :)
I am so excited to see my nephew ride his first coaster. He's still a couple years out yet (he's about 19 months), but it will definitely be something to remember.
He's been on some rides at the County Fair--even that was exciting. He's also got quite the carousel-record going. He's been on several. The first one was hilarious; he gripped the bar so tightly with this "oh-my-god" look on his face.
Let's see, that's just over a year right? You all sure didnt waste anytime getting to the "be fruitful and multiply" huh? :) Congrats! lata, jeremy --who hopes his mother-in-law doesnt see this...elsewise they'll be a phone call forthwith...
THanks everybody. He was on a ventilator all night and is now breathing all on his own. It's a little scary, but check this out.....this baby next to him is ONE pound nine ounces! That's one of the most frightening (and honestly disturbing) things I've seen in a long time.
Congrats peabody. I just brought my little coaster rider into the world 9 months ago. I know it sounds really sad, but when I first found out we were going to have a kid, one of the first things I thought of was getting on the kiddy coasters.
Congrats man! All your free time, money, sleep, and sanity just went right out the window... And just think! Just a few years ago, we were all sitting around in Rob's house watching you play with your balls... And now this!
Honestly though, congratulations man. And nice work :) *** Edited 10/26/2006 3:08:48 AM UTC by rOLLocOASt***
