Thomas Henry, born on October 2, 2011.

At 7:31am.

A little more than four hours after Heather woke me with the news that her water had broken. Which changed me from slumbering to AIEEE! in less than a second. Thank God for the groundedness of my wife.

And a big round of applause for my other children, who despite been awakened at 3:20am and not fed until around 7am behaved beautifully in the family lounge of the hospital.

There's still the good and the bad which is affecting my ability to blog at present, but this 9 lbs., 6 oz., 20 and 1/4 inch brick is one of the very best.

Mom and Tom are home and both doing well. I'm blessed beyond words. Sorry for not getting the word out by phone, but "hectic" doesn't begin to describe my life at this point.

Speaking of which, anybody who can give me a line on an 8+ passenger used vehicle would have me in their debt... :)


  1. Congratulations and God bless!

  2. Hi, Dale!

    Congratulations to Heather, you, and the new baby! God bless!

  3. Congratulations on the new baby! I can't help you out on the van, but I'm always available to treat you to lunch. Drop me an email and let's set something up.

  4. Tanti auguri, Thomas!

    And congratulations to you and the Missus, Dale.

    You all remain in our prayers.

  5. Welcome to our world, Thomas Henry! May your days be long and fruitful and may the power of the Holy Spirit guard, guide and protect you all the days of your life.

    To Dale and Heather (especially Heather!): Congratulations and well done!
