Guys, as you all know, my wife and I had been patiently awaiting the arrival of our first baby. It was a great experience, and not knowing if the baby was to be a boy or girl made it that much more of a rush.

On April 9th, at 8:25pm, my beautiful wife gave birth to a healthy, handsome, and incredible baby boy! 7lb 4oz, and 20.5" long, this guy is built and ready to melt your heart. :)

Say hi to Cohen Thomas Silva McLean! I'm pretty sure he's already analyzing his golf swing and designing kitchen knives in his head. Based on the size of his mitts, he might have to get oversized grips and handles. :D

Needless to say, we're completely in love with this little guy. Cohen says, "Hi, everyone"!

Congratulations, Tom. He is indeed adorable.

P.S. I may be flamed for saying so, but I think boys are the best.

Thanks everyone!

Awesome, Jon! I'll be sure to hassle you. First questions, of course are, how soon is too soon to get him grinding away with me in the shop, and what should be his first kitchen knife? :)

i had a plan for this... we were going to get him wooden knife shaped toys to play with... then, when he was a bit older, we were going to tape the knife to his hands and put him in a swing... then, we were going to add a stone... i figured by 2 or 3 he would be helping me sharpen :P

Congratulations Tom, so what do we force him into? Cooking, knifemaking, firefighting, or professional hockey player, I mean we gotta start early right? Have fun with the cute little guy, hope everyone is doing well!

Thanks everyone! So far, so good. He's currently riding a "milk coma", so we're about 2.5 hours into some quiet time. Haha. I might do some quiet hand sanding on a handle in the next room....
