It's a boy!
« on: September 06, 2008, 07:24:25 PM »
Scott Woods Parent was born at 5:30PM MST.  We were concerned that he wasn't crying, but as soon as we handed him a piece of paper with "Waaah!" written on it, he piped right up.  True to his namesake!

Just kidding.  Jonah Kai Parent is 8lbs 8 oz and 21.5 inches.  We had a home birth and mom and baby are just doing great.

Expect more fatherhood poems.

A child with the surname Parent? I'd be confused if there was enough of a joke in it. Irony notwithstanding, CONGRATULATIONS! Looks out NPS 2026.

Congratulations! It would have been way cooler to name him Scott Woods Parent   ;) Enjoy him while he is little, he will grow quickly!
