Im now the father of a beautiful baby girl. The baby and my wife are doing great. They did the baby's assessment and gave her a "perfect" rating. Thanks to God for that.
I didn't know c-sections were so quick. The incision started at 08:10 yesterday morning and at 08:14 she was introduced to the world. I'm not ashamed to say that I haven't cried that much in a long time. It was pretty overwhelming.
Trying to recoup right now from being up the majority of the night, but just wanted to hop on here and share my joy.

I have 2 girls myself, both c-sections. Hardest part for me was having to take care of my wife,new baby&work 2 jobs all at same time. Oh by the way, I dont know if she is your first baby but to let you know they make alot of wierd noises for the first 4 months or so. Their sinus cavities are not fully developed and you think they are choking all the time! Good luck&congrads
Congratulations, Brent! Kids are a joy to every parent, most of the time. And during those few times they aren't, remember the words of my Mom... "The first hundred years are the hardest!" Not to worry, you'll someday look back on the years and feel pretty proud. And who knows.... hat little tiny girl may someday be running your shop! My first child (also a girl) was teaching her first boyfriend how to service brakes (disc/drum) when she was a Junior in high school. She picked it up following along the first two times I "re-shod" a 1/2-ton pickup that I kept for 15 years. The third time, I sat there and watched her do it - didn't have to correct anything.
Congratulations Brent! Just married off my baby girl last July. Fatherhood is the most wonderful, fulfilling, exhasperating, frustrating, lovable, all-consuming experience you will ever have. I wouldn't trade it for the world. Happy to hear everyone is happy and healthy! Make yourself a promise right now, that when she is grown and married off you will not have any regrets that you didn't spend more time with her. There will ALWAYS be another engine to build. You only get so many memories to make. Make each one count!
