As I mentioned in a few other posts, the wife and I have been expecting a baby and last Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 3:33 am, he arrived! Benjamin Robert Bookwalter popped out a healthy 7 lbs. 8 ozs., 21″ tall after 18 hours of labor. Of course, he decided it was time to come on one of the worst days of an Ohio winter! But he was delivered without incident and both baby and mommy are doing well.

It goes without saying that his birth is one of the proudest moments of my life… it’s truly amazing to stand there and watch his birth and immediately see how it dwarfs all of my other accomplishments in life.

Thanks to my family & friends who have shared in the experience… I’ll try not to be one of those annoying parents who goes on and on about his kid in my blog… after 42 years being baby-free, I know how grating that can be!
