I’ve just started working on a brand new story of a rather different sort: fatherhood. I’d prefer to outline this particular story, of course, but I’m told it doesn’t work quite like that…. so pantsing it is!
This has been quite a remarkable experience, all told. From seeing my wife transform, to seeing the amazing abilities of modern medical science, to watching my son enter the world, to feeling the bond already building between myself and him. You really have to live it to believe it.
The little man (9 pounds and 13.6 oz, if we can call that little) and is as healthy and happy as I could have wanted (as is his mom). He has a full head of hair, shows a propensity to quiet inquisitive staring over screaming (let’s see if this lasts!), and has already mastered sucking his thumb.
Looking forward to a new adventure with this little guy and the start of my family. Evan, welcome to the world!

Congrats on the new born. An inspiration of life itself
Awww Mike, he’s adorable! hiddenelves (Jay) and his brother were my bundles of joy. Enjoy, my friend!
He’s adorable. Wishing you all the best. 🙂
So sweet! Best of luck to you, your wife, and Evan.
I had my boy a little over a year ago, and the transformation, like you’ve described, is unmistakable. I love seeing my husband eager to come home to our child and our son equally ecstatic to see him. You will see! The love and fun only grow. I love posts like this.
Thanks! Enjoying every day of it 🙂
Super cute, dude! Congrats. I wish you all the best on your new journey. Was he born on the 17th? Funny story, my wife and I had our 3rd child (3rd boy) on August 17th. His name is Quentin. Good luck with Evan!
Many thanks for the well wishes! And congrats back at you for Quentin. Evan was due on the 17th, but didn’t end up emerging until late on the 18th… hopefully not a metaphor for his approach to life in general 🙂
