On December 1st at 7:41 AM Maya made her way into this world at 8 pounds 7 ounces.

Lots of coffee and smiles. The only problem I have is that she does not come with an instruction manual or ctrl-z button ;o)

Congratulations Paladin. In no time at all it won't be the Ctrl-Z key you're looking for, but the Ctrl-C. The Esc key also comes in handy sometimes...

No instruction manual required - just admire, love and hug (lots). That should do until the teenage years.

Congratulations

Congratulations! Maya is a beautiful name.

Your life will change :)

Having kids does change your life - for the better. And I can still say that despite having one that is a teenager!

That is encouraging. One of our "biggest fears" is that she will be just like us when she gets into her teens.

Don't be so sure about the instruction manual:

Through step-by-step instructions and helpful schematic diagrams, The Baby Owner’s Manual explores the common concerns of every first-time parent: What’s the best way to swaddle a baby? How can I make my newborn sleep through the night? When should I bring the baby to a doctor for servicing? Whatever your question, you’ll find the answer here—courtesy of celebrated pediatrician Dr. Louis Borgenicht and his son, Joe Borgenicht. Together, they provide plenty of useful advice for anyone who wants to learn the basics of childcare.

Hi,

My partner's waters have broken, so I will quite likely be a daddy within 24 hours too!

Eeek!

Hey congratulations Damon!

Just a suggestion though. If her water broke, maybe log off WebmasterWorld, and drive her to the hospital? Just a thought...!

Good luck!

Hi,

Don't worry! We went to the hospital and are back home until things develop further! At this rate we'll be back tonight...

Congratualtions Paladin! Being the father of 2 girls (8 & 3yrs old) and another on the way (june-don't know the sex) I must admit they are the greatest joys of my life.

As for a manual, you don't need one... Just spend as much time with them as you possibly can. It will all come naturally.

Good luck!

Well, better late than never, Congratulations paladin, and to Mom!

I just spoke with my baby on Sunday.. the first time in a quite a while. She has just returned from a trip to India where she visited some of the spiritual places associated with her upbringing. Its a wonderful feeling to know that a child has not only embraced the values she was given but has gone on to be more than a parent could ever hope for. She's 22 now, and I hope one day yours brings the same warm feelings to your heart. Oh, and there's little to compare with talking to a 3 year old grandson. Forget all the books and shortcut keys, just do the best you can every day.
