First off, thanks very much to everyone for the good wishes. I appreciate it more than you know. Second, to answer the above question, we already have a boy, about to turn six in a few days...there is even a shot that his sister might be born on his birthday! And congrats to you too, lostwildcat...you have an 8-week jump on the sleepless nights I will soon be experiencing! Thanks again, everyone.

Wow, congrats! Soon another shooter among us

Wahoo!! If you ever had any doubt about the correct answer to the question "is personality determined by nature or nurture?", it gets clearly resolved when you have your second child. [beer]

We're still debating the name. Among the many contestants are: Erin, Andrea, Jessica and Taylor.

FWIW, "Erin".

Congratulations, Rik! [beer] Here's a little friendly advice for what it's worth: 1) Buy a gun for the new family member now in honor of her birth. [:D] 2) Enjoy them while you can because they grow up FAST! (seems like yesterday that my 15-year old was just learning to walk & talk) Best wishes to you and yours! [:)]

You're definitely right about how fast they grow. It seems like we just brought our son home from the hospital and he's going to be six this weekend. I take every opportunity I can to give him a big hug because I know there will come a day when he won't want his mom and dad to hug him anymore... [>Q]
