New addition to the family

My wife and I just had our first child last Wednesday. Joshua Edward was 6 lb 1 oz, a perfect little angel. Had to cancel my latest LRH project in order to buy diapers and such but I wouldn't trade him for the world. (I am not hurting for suitable LRH rifles anyway, I'll be okay.)

I am left handed and my wife is right handed. Wouldn't it be tragic if he turns out right handed and I have to buy a bunch of right handed gear for him? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: New addition to the family

congradulations , its a great feeling isin't it.

I could have alot of nice toys for the $600 a month I'm paying for daycare but I woulden't trade my curtain climber for anything either.

I was amazed about how having a child has changed my attitude and outlooks so much.

That is exactly right.

Many weekends spent at soccer games, music lessons, baseball games, boyscout meetings and trips, and a lot less hunting and I do not regret one minute of the time I spent with them.
The credit card bill just came today for the hog and auodad hunt trip I took with my son and it took me maybe thirty seconds to consider in my mind the cost versus the memories obtained. It would have taken less time except there were so many good memories to consider.

Enjoy him now because twenty years will pass in a hurry and he wil be on his own.

Re: New addition to the family

Awsome!!!!

My wife and I, mostly my wife, raised 7 of the little children [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I wouldn't take a $million for any one of them.

However, I wouldn't give 10 cents for another [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Just bought a Rossi 22/410 for an 8 yr old grand son. All that practice with the BB gun really paid off.

You have some good times to look forward to. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: New addition to the family

Congrats Sambo!

Daipers will eat up alot of your $$ over the next few years.

Both of my boys are looking like they're going to be left handed.

I've told them that they'll learn to shoot right handed [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Until they're old enough to buy their own guns they're just going to settle with my hand me downs and I'll buy new for myself.

Cheers!
