Somebody's dad

Posted Monday, July 26, 2010, at 2:20 AM

So much to say, so much to say.

And yet, I can't really find the proper words.

At 6:58 p.m. on Friday, July 23, 2010, Nicole and I welcomed Miles Scot Jernagan into the world.

Perhaps it's the lack of sleep I've had over the last four days, or maybe it's just being overwhelmed by the gravity of it all, but I have remarkably little to say about this life-changing event right now.

I can only say that he is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, and I can never thank Nicole enough times for giving him to me.

Besides that, I'll just let the picture do the talking.

I can't believe I'm somebody's dad.

The best thing that can ever happen to anyone is becoming someone's mom or dad. Congratulations to you and your wife, what a gorgeous little guy! You will hear this a lot, because it's true, enjoy it while it lasts, because it doesn't last long enough! They grow up way too fast!
