Smile It's a boy!

Off the usual topics, but worth sharing:

Nicholas Ian Carter, born Friday, November 16th, 2001 at 6:44 PM.
Weight: 6 lbs 12 oz. Length: 20 inches

Mom and baby are doing fine. Hospital stay was long and tedious. He's a little bit early so they kept mom from Thursday to Monday and baby from Friday to Monday. We're finally home and settling in.

Obligatory diesel comment: he rode home in the TDI Beetle

Give him a little while to start paying attention to things, then start up the 240D, open the hood, go in the house and get him and take him out to listen to the "Music". He'll probably think he's back in heaven !!

Congrats!! Nothing like a spanking new whipper snapper in the house!!

You didn't list any kids in your signature, just cars, so we can't tell if this your first or not....if it is, your in for a thrill, you won't be able to get home from work soon enough to see him.

Good luck to all.

Congratulations, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your entire family. There is nothing in the world that compares to the hope and optimism a new born child gives us. In these days, we need all the hope and optimism we can find, so thanks for sharing your news with us. Jim
