Our baby was born. She's beautiful, healthy and awesome. Just like my other two kids, the first song she ever heard outside the womb was "I Will" by the Beatles as sung by me.

We spent the night in the hospital and my wife and I watched the Tom Petty documentary. This little girl entered the world to the Beatles and Tom Petty. My kids and I have been listening to the entire Cat Stevens catalog in heavy rotation.

Here is the little one:

Not sure if this is your cup of tea but this song kinda made me want to be a father and now being a step dad is a potential thing that could happen to me

I'm excited to help raise a good human even if my behavior keeps pushing the time table for that possibility back but I'm doing the right thing now. I'm surprised by my willingness to be ordinary because I thought I'd be Bohemian and scoff at the bourgeoisie forever. It's time to adult.

I offered up my delivery services and the midwife was seriously going to let me do it but my wife said "no." I held her foot and knee up - a human stirrup. It was an amazing birth. My wife is a fucking badass. Women are amazing.
