The Trilogy Is Complete!
Who doesn't like a good trilogy? Star Wars (we will pretend Episodes 1-3 never happened), Indiana Jones (What Crystal Skulls?), Back To The Future, Ghostbusters (I'm thinking ahead now), Lord of the Rings and so on.
I'm very happy to tell you all that my wife and I completed our trilogy yesterday, although she did almost all of the work. Our third (and final) child, and our first (and only) daughter Penelope (We call her Penny) was born yesterday October 2nd at 2:00 Server Time. She was 7 pounds, 9.5 ounces and a lot of that weight came from her full head of black hair.
She and my wife, Nursey are both doing fine. Her big brothers Jack and Jetson are both really looking forward to having a little sister to kick around. Little do they know that I've already begun training her in the art of running logical rings around someone until they break down into a crying pile of confused self-pity on the floor.
Like her father, she also has little-to-no idea what's going on around her and she has prehensile toes.
Seeing the birth of a healthy child, especially when it's your own is one of the most mind-blowing and wonderful experiences that you are able to have as a human being and it is a great honor to be able to share this happy news with all of you amazing people out there who play our games. Some of you have even followed me from being a happily single mad weaponsmith, to an even happier married weaponsmith, to a father. I really feel like I've grown up with a lot of you and I really appreciate you being here, reading about the best news I could possibly share with anyone.
I'll be taking a little time off to bond with Penny and take care of the lads while my lovely wife rests and helps our new addition figure out what this world is all about. See you soon!
