Last night at 10:36pm my wife delivered our baby boy Carson weighing in at 9 lbs 5oz and 21 inches long, she delivered natural with no epidural or pain meds! What a trooper this woman is and so strong! His due date was last Wednesday 4/2 but he wanted a couple of extra days in there.
Mom and baby boy are doing very well after some brief scares (mom lost a lot of blood and Carson had trouble with the umbilical cord wrapped around him and he's got bruising on his face), but every one is doing fantastic now. What a PHENOMENAL staff we had, these ladies were amazing and we can't thank them enough.
Here's my future ripper and baseball prodigy!
Thought I'd share with you all.

For those with towers, we bought a king sized bed sheet and hang it from the tower and run a corner to each cleat (bow or stern) with the blue tarp clips from lowes (which sink, but are cheaper than buying a float for keys for each one so we have a few spares) that we put up when anchored.
Sun screen, bucket of water, some boating toys, squirt bottle (for them and them to squirt you), and u/v repellent shirts.
No need to not go as much boating as before, just keep them cool (squirt bottle,shade and bucket to sit in).
What a difference between growing up wearing a life jacket vs fighting with nieces/nephews to put it on before getting near the water.
Enroll in swimming lessons early. (YMCA has parent and me class that you just go in with them we did in winter), but being near water and flops can happen, at 2 1/2 I am very confident he can swim w/ his jacket on, (he was on his own with us in the water at the end of last year). This year at lessons in the winter, he was jumping off the side wall over his head under and loving it.
Take a cpr class for the worst case (I never want to need it), but the instructions are different for infants than adults. Red Cross and others have instructors.2004 Supra 22 Launch SSV
