For giving me the best days of my life...

I've been told that my blog needs another baby update. Something about how the announcement, that's all of three days old, has become a bit of a "been there, done that" post.

Geez, not like I'm in a hospital with a newborn and a wife who is still in recovery of sorts. But I'm nothing if not a blog junkie and a man of the people, so here's an update on the Nathan front...

I'm a boy, I'm a boy...

"Kapgar 2.0" has a name. It is Nathan Paul. Born tonight, weighing 8 lbs, 8 oz. and measuring in at 20.5 inches long. He has more hair than daddy already.

Born four days past the due date of September 15, but born exactly on his original due date.

Born on the 19th anniversary of the death of my friend Michael Paul Haddad.

Born on Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Welcome to the world, Nathan.

And, yeah, I really do think...

You remember that post where I was joking around about Hollywood-ized, out-there names for our baby if it happens to be a boy? Well, there has been a rather unexpected side effect courtesy of Jen (one of our SiLs).

Since we don't know the gender of our baby and we're not planning to find out and therefore cannot use stand-in names like "Baby Boy A" or "Baby Girl A" or even gender-specific pronouns like "he," "him," "she," or "her," Jen has taken to calling our baby by one of the names in that blog post.

Like the moon and the stars and the sun...

As you know, I've become an Instagram junkie over the course of the last year and a half. At first, it was never easy to share what you take with friends unless you had your account tied to social media such as Facebook or Twitter. Then we got the ability to add to Flickr. Then the system opened up to Android phones instead of just the iPhone.

Now we have one other new way... and a chance for me to potentially make money as well!

I need time to stop moving...

What is it about day's off not actually being true "day's off"? I remember when I was a kid, having a day off meant that I was running around outside playing all day long with my friends.

Now? I'm doing laundry and flushing a drain in our mudroom and, well, I am watching Doctor Who so I guess that counts as "recreation." Damn, just disproved my own thesis statement. Way to go, Kapgar.

I'm going to shut up now and recap my progress toward my New Year's Resolutions. Sound good?
