A couple weeks ago, my wife, Katie, and I welcomed our daughter into the world. She was born a little early at 6 pounds, 10 ounces, with a big mop of brown hair.

This is our first. We are so happy and a little tired, but are starting to get a handle on the new routines. Raising a family has been a long-time goal of mine and it’s fulfilling to see this come to fruition. I have a collection of Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales and am enjoying flipping through that and reading to her.

I’m trying to be conscientious about keeping a low profile on the net on her behalf, so I won’t be posting too many updates or much information on this blog, but naturally this is the biggest thing going on in my life at the moment and I couldn’t resist sharing.

Of course, if you call me on my cell I am happy to fill you in on the details personally.
