Declan Micah John...

... this is your very first blog post.

My wife and I have finally welcomed out little son into this world, Declan Micah John. We had originally thought of the name Augustine if it were to be a boy, but after we held and beheld him, we knew it wasn't the right fit. He actually didn't have a name until well into his first day, and it was my wife that came up with the name. The second names were chosen by our parents: Micah because of the Old Testament prophet, and John because it is the confirmation name my father and I share.

Coming out the hospital is a real shock. They tell you this in pre-natal class quite a bit, but it doesn't really sink in until it's 3am, you and your baby haven't slept for ages and you just can't get him to latch properly. Nevertheless, even with all the concern and frustration we've felt as new parents, our son is easily the most wondrous thing I have ever seen. The immediate love we felt for him was, well, completely out of this world. I think we both began to understand the love God has for us, fractionally of course, when little Declan came into our lives.

Merry Christmas!

Adeste Fideles!

Thank You God for the blessing of Declan!
