we got the camera. So, there are a few more pics
for you. I still don't have that many, because
my wife has most of them, and I just have to figure
out where on the hard drive they are.
the boy, when he was less than a day old. He's
a good looking kid for a newborn, if I do say so myself.
I must say, everyone at the hospital were great.
I knock Southampton Hospital all the time for
various reasons, but they were great here. I don't
think we could have asked for more (except maybe a private
room after she gave birth).
my favorite picture now. The story behind it is
that early one morning, Cole was to have his feeding,
and she was doing 100 other things, so she asked if
I could help out. She didn't have the boppy thing
that holds his head up, so she just asked if I could
put my arm out so that Cole could rest his head on it
so he wasn't completely flat on the bed as he was fed.
So I stuck out my arm as support, and Tara put
him in bed and made sure his head was on my arm for
support. She fed him, and I pretty much fell asleep.
As kids do during feedings, he fell asleep too.
Was resulted was this picture, almost in the identical
pose. You couldn't have planned that if you wanted
is my son, Cole Tyler Edwards.
Back then, he was a sonogram picture. My
wife went through all the important work of labelling
his various parts so that people have an idea of what
they're looking at.
a closeup of Cole at 14 weeks. There were a lot
of pictures taken of him for medical reasons (checking
his health, etc), but after a while, he just turned
to look at us. Kinda weird.
Cole at 7 weeks, the first time he ever looked like
anything resembling a baby. The first sonogram,
which was at 5 weeks, was pretty much a spot. That
(especially in a clearer scan) actually looked like
a baby. I just can't imagine something like that
growing inside of you.
me and the wife. Having also stolen this picture
from my wife's hard drive, the only info I can give
you about it is that it was taken, apparently, in New
York City. It seems relatively recent, because
I look like that now, and I remember those sunglasses.
me and the wife back in college, back when she was blond
and when I... well, I've pretty much always looked like
that. I was probably a bit lighter.
my new car. It's a Corolla, which is the first
car I've ever owned. I've always trucks or that
type of thing, but this is the first car I've owned
new, and the first actual car. It ain't shiny
like that anymore.
pics will come eventually, especially when I figure
out where they are. They'll probably be just of
the boy, but that's how fatherhood is.
