    Attention It's a Boy!

    Just to let you know that the earl2 family welcomed a new addition this morning. Our new little Eskimo fan weighed in at 9 lbs and his 4 year old sister and 2 year old brother are pretty excited. Mrs earl2 and baby are doing fine.

    As my wife says "Now that we have three we have to switch from playing man-to-man and start playing a zone defence..."

    Our chaotic life just got a little crazier.
    These pretzels are making me thirsty.

    Let me be the first to congratulate you. Downside is now there is no way that temple goes back up as I'm sure you'll be needing the room.

    Edit: Okay, Phil beat me by seconds. Let me be the second to congratulate you.

    I hit them as hard as I could on the mouth right from the start of the game so they were thinking this was going to be a long day. Sooner or later one of us had to quit. And it wasn't going to be me.

    Woo hoo! Congrats, Earl. Does that make the kid earl3?

    We used the same line when we got three kids. The weird thing was, it was a real shock with the first and with the second. But third didn't make that much difference, craziness-wise.

    Good luck!

    Here's hoping that's the case for us. But I've had more than a few people tell me that the first and third are the ones that turn your life upside down. The second isn't so bad, and anything after three really isn't a big adjustment...

    Considering I'm expecting two "firsts" and my 2nd pregnancy will be my third... that statement scared the crap out of me. lol

    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    Damn, you beat me to it. A three year cycle would stretch it out too long.

    Congrats!

    My congrats to everyone in the family Earl.
    When you don't know that you don't know, it's a lot different than when you do know that you don't know.

    Seems that way, doesn't it?

    Every two years. Two in the middle of December and one at the beginning of January.

    We're nothing if not consistent.

    It's just good planning. You never want to have a baby around Grey Cup time. The wife frowns on you watching the game when you're supposed to be helping her breathe. Congratulations!

    Don't be such a cheap *basturd. Buy them an annual pass for Christmas each year and they can swim all they want.

    * Note to E4E: The misspelling was intentional. I know you check my posts for spelling.

    Exactly!

    Actually, we have been trying to avoid having the kids before December so they don't interfere with reffing football. Most people look at me like I'm an alien when I say that, but I hope you guys will understand. As for my wife, she just doesn't want to be 9 months pregnant in August when its 27 degrees outside...

    The fact that my wife understands my concerns about interfering with the football season (even if she thinks I'm an idiot) indicate what a great girl she is.

    Thanks all for your good wishes. Mom and baby got home this afternoon and we're gonna spend some time trying to settle in to a slightly new kind of home life (and maybe watch the Oilers on HNIC tonight if the kids let me...)
