Dearest Uechi Family,

Heather and I are very, very pleased to introduce our son! Cory Baxter Sheets Lipin joined the world on November 14th. He is, of course, the cutest little guy in the world!

And here are a couple pictures.

We are happy, exhausted, joyful, and did I mention sleepy?

Heather is doing well, Cory is amazing and I am beside myself in sheer awe of it all!

Well, I was wondering why you were being so quiet. Now I know. Sleep deprivation. Good work. I know he will always be surrounded by love and a sense of life's possibilities. My best to you both.

Peace

Call me any time you need a friend. Trust me - you will in another 13 years or so... ;)

Congratulations to you both. I am so very happy for you.

BTW, that is the most beautifully happy face I think I've ever seen on Heather.

Thank you everyone for your well wishes and offers of support. And yes - he's got me quite busy so you probably won't see much of me for a couple of months. However, know that during diaper changing times I'll be working hard on covering my centerline and stepping off the lines of..well...you know... :D

He is joy. Simple, wonderful, joy - there is nothing more wonderful than holding him and watching him be held.

FWIW... Diaper duty is not a woman's duty.

Because of work and other logistical issues, I did much of the work of raising number 1 son in the first year except for the very important role of breast feeding. Even before I had my first son and I was doing research in the lab on anesthetized dogs, I was amazed at how grown men with kids would get all eeewwwwie when Fido pooped a bloody, wormy one. Wimps!

Want to know what it's like to go through 5 changes of baby clothing in 2 hours when junior is having one of those stomach bug issues?

It's a labor of love. You either get it or you don't. If you get that, your son will be a very lucky boy, and will grow up to be a man you both will be proud of. And on that note, my gut tells me that the world is already blessed.
