Default Congratulations Alex!

I'd like to congratulate Alex Bont and his beautiful wife Soo Yeon on the birth of their first child, Heidi! And to think I knew Alex since he was like 10 years old...I feel like an uncle myself...

So, yea, this is why you haven't seen Alex posting here in a while...

I believe the troll comment "Pix or it didn't happen" apply here very nicely.

Congratulations Alex! Best to you and of course, all and only the very best to mom and baby. I hope both are well and thriving.

Actually, I think Stelly was really looking for you in the crowd because he heard the news?

Thanks for posting Glenn!

Paul

Ha!!!! LMAO!!! Yep. I call this "life in clear Jell-O." air is easy. Try substituting your own personal atmosphere with clear Jell-O! "which ATM did I leave my debit card in today?" this is the greatest thing you can ever imagine, even if it beats you up like 60 seconds with Tyson in his prime.

I promise you two things, Alex:

1. It get easier every day. By so little you will think I am a mad man at first. But it is true. You just need to see it in aggregate.
2. Your wife is a child rearing super genius. Yep. She is. We are not. I am a social worker and had tons more time with children and babies than my wife. No matter. None. Stand in awe of her knowing things you have no earthly idea how or where she gets this information or intuition or whatever it is. What it is, really, is completely incredible. You think you love her more than the sun and the air now? Give it a few more days. In this, she is always right, and she knows it, but not because she read it or because someone told her, but because this is her baby. And kind of yours.

Best, and again, hoping in every way all is well!! (I can't even come close to containing my excitement about a new baby, not even close)

Paul
