So, this happened...


Recommended Posts

So here it is. Where else on the net would I make my first cyber announcement about the birth of our first child?


Here's a piccie of my baby boy, whom we named Taylor. Born 21/2/13, after my wife spent 18 hours in labour, he will be one week old tomorrow. :)

I though you'd been quiet!


Many congratulations to you and your wife! 18 hours isnt too bad for a first birth - my wife was well in excess of 24 hours!!


Enjoy it mate, cos it flies by.........my Lily is 6 and the twins are 3.5 now and God knows where the time has gone.


If I can make one recommendation : use Bepanthen.........magic nappy rash cream (if you can get it in Oz that is)


All the best.

Thanks mate. Yeah, I'm planning to enjoy these early moments as I know he won't be this cute for long! :) Thanks for the nappy rash cream. I assume it's available here - I'll check it out.

Cool beans Geoffrey.


Whats it like being a dad? Pretty amazing and scary and awesome and scary and exciting and... :)


As stated by Stefan, from one dad to another enjoy your sprout, fatherhood is truly a magical journey and as Glenn mentioned it FLIES by... my "babies" are going to be 7 and 12 next month.


If I can offer any words of wisdom they would be 2-fold, love, love, love your baby and never let him forget it and do the same for mom. Always lend an ear to what she's going through as a new mom cause it can be a rough go emotionally...


Congrats again!

Thanks all, much appreciated.


And Dan, they did not allow me to reproduce. But that didn't stop me. Couldn't stop me, in fact. I'm dangerous like that. ;)


Thanks for the tips, Terry. And yeah, scary as hell - no doubt about it. I'm just some punk from the streets of downtown Oatlands, and now I have this funny looking, cute little dude who is completely dependent on my wife and I. Crazy stuff.


I was always hesitant to finally take the plunge into having a kid, and I'm glad we waited till we did as we got a lot out of the last few years. But once your baby's born, all that hesitance kind of fades away and it is indeed a crazy feeling. Hard to describe, but one thing I noticed is a more intense understanding and appreciation of what my parents went through, and what it took for them to care for me and my 2 brothers for all these years.


Anyway, no rambling. Someone said the other day that you will never regret having a kid, but you may regret not having one. I'd never heard that before, but I can appreciate it now. It's scary for sure, but I'm looking forward to the journey. :)

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
