at 5:38am Sunday my daughter and first child was delivered via C-Section. i was in the operating room with my wife while the doctors delivered the baby. as soon as she came out i heard her cry and watched them take her over to clean her up and i pretty much lost it. they wrapped her up and handed her to me so i could show my wife. i was able to sit with her in the nursery and hold her for about 2 hours while my wife was in the recovery room.

i never thought something so small could bring me to my knees like she did. she has been such a good baby, very little crying or fussing. though she did for about an hour last night but she sleeps and eats really good. everybody was impressed by her color and size.

I'm trying to decide if it would be bad protocol to put my 1911 in the crib and take a picture with her and it (of course unloaded and with a chamber flag). i think that would make for a good picture. but unsure if that would look bad. i do have some join or die, magpul, and Wolverines! stickers i can take her picture with. i wish i had a sleeper with a BFL i could put on her.

but anyway, here is a picture of me and my baby, about 15 minutes after birth in the hospital nursery. it was awful dusty in that room that for sure. and i probably look young, but I'm 25.

later Sunday night, my little nugget after her first bath.

no wife pictures for PERSEC reasons. and by that i mean she would kill me if she knew i put her picture after having a baby on the internet.

she weighed in at 8lb. 3oz. and 22 inches long. which my wife said "Jesus Christ" when she heard that in the delivery room. my wife is 4' 11" tall. we don't know how that child fit in there. but this was an amazing experience, and i wouldn't trade it for anything.

My son came out at 10.5 and 24 inches and my poor wife grunted him out.
She was tore up something terrible.
My daughter was2 weeks early and was 8 lbs. She is now 17 and I have
some news for you - YOU'RE SCREWED.
Congrats on the new baby! It's a life changing event huh?

Congrats! The first time she gives you a hug and says "I love you, Daddy." will probably stir up a lot of dust too.
Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:17:33 AM EST
Get used to it (or try like I have) cause being a Dad sometimes, the room gets "dusty". My two kids have taught me that.
Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:17:47 AM EST
I'm not going to lie, I cried like a bitch when my little girl was born. I have been all over the world and seen some really cool things but the sight of my daughter made everyrhing else pale in comparison.

A few hours after the birth one of the nurses could see me floating on cloud nine and she said that I did better than most fathers. She went on to say most fathers won't even try to help, they just stand in the corner and get pale or they don't even bother showing up.

Congratulations to you sir, just know everday from now on will be a test or an adventure. Just watching my daughter come from the same state your daughter is in to watching my daughter do so many things on her own has been totally fascinating. Also, you'll need to try to get a much sleep as you can and learn to sleep in positions you aren't used to.

I cried when both my sons were born. Nothing wrong with that, it's pure love.

Congrats dad!

Welcome to fatherhood.

Congratulations! Look at the hair on her.

When my daughter was born in 2007 - I was not wearing a smock like you are. The doctor handed her to me immediately after delivery. Got blood stains all over that shirt.
I have put the shirt away as a little keepsake, and would never wear it again.

You look like my brother who had his daughter 12 years ago

All I can say is "wrapped around little finger" is what little girls do to dads...

indeed. when she's sweet, she's very sweet. when she is bad, she is very bad!

OP, mine was 8 lbs, 3 oz, too. my wife is 5'-11 though, so she had a little more room to spread out.

Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:44:08 AM EST

Good job, DAD. (Mom too)

It won't be the last time your little girl will make you cry.

Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:46:19 AM EST
Congrats!! I cried like a baby the moment I heard by two boys cry for the first time too, it is an overwhelming feeling at that moment.
Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:49:48 AM EST

happened to me too

Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:50:07 AM EST

congrats man. i cried, too, when my twins were born.
Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:53:47 AM EST
Yep, the first time I held my daughter, tears were dripping from my eyes on to her forehead. It's an experience like no other. Congrats!!
Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:57:25 AM EST
Ya'll are some damn sissy cakeboys.

When the doctor showed me mine, I just grunted an approval and went back to my business of scratching myself and being manly.

Link Posted: 3/14/2011 7:59:08 AM EST
Congrats! That's a pretty cool hat they gave her to wear

Our first was delivered via c section as well, it was pretty intense and I've never felt so scared or helpless while it was going on. Once all the commotion has died down and you have quiet time to spend with your wife and new little one, that is time you will not trade for anything else in the world. Savor those hours you spend in the hospital before you go home and life starts back up and much more complicated than before

yep i too cried when my son was born. i hid it well but my then wife still noticed. one of the proudest days of my life, seconded only to the first time the little shit walked up to me unprovoked gave me a hug and said, "i love you daddy".
