Sky Lynn Reed's 0th birthday is 5/15/2008 at 5:44pm, when she weighed 8 pounds, 0 ounces. A nice round binary number. Our first born! There are simply no words to describe the experience. We debated on whether we should have kids for a long time. After being married almost 5 years now, we finally decided to take the plunge. Now that she's here, and about 5 weeks old, we couldn't imagine our lives without her.
Of course, being a programmer daddy should be fun. We'll just see how early it is possible to learn to type. Imagine having an email address that you've had since before you were born? Oh, and a birthday cake with a number 0 candle on it makes sense to me. You're how old? Yeah, but you've only had that many traditional "birthdays". You've been robbed of the most important birthday there is -- your BIRTH day. As soon as she fits into it, I'll post a picture of her wearing her "Microsoft Future Developer" outfit. Dad is a geek, Sky, you better get used to it.
I look forward to just about everything that is to come. Of course it will be difficult. There will be major hurdles to jump over. Good times and bad times. But what a gift -- I get to live life all over again. I get to experience childhood as an adult.
