Where I have been

Meet Oldenburg Jr., at 8 pounds 4.2 ounces and 21.5 inches, he the reason why I have been out of pocket for so many days. Poor Ms. Oldenburg was induced on Tuesday, but did not give birth until Thursday morning via C-section at 35.5 weeks. I have spent three nights on hospital futons, but that is nothing compared to Mrs. Oldenburg.

Its funny, I love reading, writing, and talking about politics, but the Democratic Convention and John McCain's Hail Mary Sarah Palin seemed uninteresting to me after this started to happen. By tonight, all 4 four grandparents will be here, and we are blessed to have so much support from all of them.

Meanwhile for me, two firms in town have made offers to me and both are terrific offers and places. One even sent up a bouquet to the hospital room. It is nice to know that the little guy won't go hungry because his papa found a job, which was my biggest stress these last few months.

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend, I know I will.

What a good reason to be gone!

Congratulations on the sweet baby and the job offers.

Oh- and I wish your wife a speedy recovery, c-sections sound horrible!

Congratulations on a very good week for you. I'm certain you'll be an excellent father and firm associate.

Your baby is absolutely adorable! It will be a while before you get to sleep.

Your wife's labor sounds almost as bad as mine! I was in labor with my first for 83 hours and 57 hours for my second.
