Good Tidings of Great Joy

Our little baby boy was born in the early hours of the morning two days ago. He is sleeping beside me as I write now. I am overwhelmed with joy and love for this little child as I finally get to hold him in my arms. He is so tiny and beautiful. All my anxieties about fatherhood just melt into simple love. I look forward to watching him grow over the years and teaching him about the world. I hope he becomes a better man than me.

I know The Gridbook Blog isn't typically for updates about my life, but such monumental news I couldn't help but put here. For more details and pictures you can read my personal blog here and here.

This blog may not be intended for personal news, but then what is more momentous, philosophically and otherwise, than the birth of your own child? Nothing else shapes your view of the world and your purpose in it the way becoming a parent does and will. I look forward to many more expositions on how he is affecting your thinking!
