New addition

My daughter was born tonight at 7:20PM. She weighed 8.06lbs and is 20" tall. Put up a heck of a fight. Wife's due date was Saturday, so she had to be induced this morning at 8AM. Labor was long and tough but I have got to give credit to the other sex. Not only do they put up with our crap they go through that. My wife did great and I am proud of her and my new daughter!! Sorry just had to share, I'm excited!!

ADKian,

Congrats, glad to hear everyone is doing well.
Enjoy every minute, they grow so fast it will make your head spin.
Some of my favorite moments in life were when the kids were young...so precious.

Congratulations Ian. What's her name and did you get her a pink pack and sleeping bag yet? How soon before she can read the ADK NPT guidebook do you think?

She's got a little pink Kelty waiting for her. No sleeping bag, but Jacks R Better does offer a pink top quilt so there's an idea.....let's just hope she didn't inherit the curse As soon as she starts on hard food it will be nothing but Hawk Vittles. Nothing but the best for my kids!

Edit: Her name is Madison. I was fighting for Toni Romona but my wife shot that one down. Maybe the name just wasn't elite enough? HAHA I will be seeing you soon Hawk my friend. Got an order coming through.
