On Friday October 28 at 5:06 p.m. my wife, Cheryl, gave birth to our first child, an extremely handsome little boy named Asa Gray Minchew. He has a full head of brown hair and pretty blue eyes. He was born on my father’s birthday which made for an extremely happy day.
Asa was born 3 weeks early because of difficulties my wife had been having over the last few weeks. I look rather rough in the picture above after the many sleepless nights leading up to Asa’s birth (with many years of sleepless nights to go.)
But all is well now.
Both are doing beautifully and are home at last.
And now for the important numbers:
6 lbs 14 oz
21 1/2 inches long
Any words of wisdom for a brand new dad?
