    Default New addition

    I suppose "People & Places" is the heading to put this under.
    Introducing the newest addition to my family. Aidan Daniel Willis.

    He was born Thursday the 1st of March, weighed 7 lbs 5.4 oz and is a real little milk pig. He's been feeding, napping and filling his diaper since we got him on on Saturday night.
    A helper for my boatbuilding projects.
    Cheers,
    Daniel

    CONGRATS!!!! He looks just the one to help you with your next boat build! (I'm awaiting the birth - in May- of my first grandson. Can't wait to put a hammer in his hand!)

    Congratulations! I recall my favorite pic of a friend's son...just an arm reaching out from a belly pack...holding on to the tiler with Bill. May Aiden bring you much joy!

    Welcome, young fella.
    "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome and charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime" Mark Twain... so... Carpe the living sh!t out of the Diem

    I'd rather look back at my life and say "I can't believe I did that" instead of being there saying "I wish I'd done that"

    Definite congrats.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Congratulations. It appears I share a birth date with him, although 54 years apart.
    Stay calm, be brave....wait for the signs. Possibly precariously prevaricating.

    Thanks everyone. He's eating a lot, nearly reached his birth weight. Doctor's happy, his mom's happy and I'm happy.

    What a beautiful new life!! May he bring you and your wife a lifetime of joy.
    Our son just turned 36 the other day and my wife and I were going over old baby pictures. Lots of loving memories that you are yet to enjoy.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
