Dang! Here it is…even though I knew it was coming fatherhood snuck up
on me. On Thursday Tanya’s  water broke  and we took her to
the hospital. She wasn’t having contractions so they induced labor -
about 6 hours later (4:29 a.m.) we had a little  girl on our
hands, Elle Kathryn Ochenas. She was  6 lbs. 5 oz. and 21 inches
long, healthy and beautiful. T is a total champ and made it look easy -
even with the induction she went natural and sped right through it.
We’re home now and surrounded by goodwill and the support of our loved
ones. Thanks to everybody for the well wishing, flowers, calls, gifts
and the rest. Half the joy of this process (at least so far) has been
the way everyone has rallied round us. A particular shout goes out to
all the good people at work who’ve been so cool and supportive of me
jumping ship halfway through the 1.1 effort – you’ll get your
investment back in Arthur (That’s a familiar sounding statement, huh?)
. Much love to all,

I told you I hated blogging but here you are anyway. You must be some kind of glutton for punishment. What the hell is wrong with you? You’re probably some kind of blogger, or perhaps a blog afficianado…sheesh. Go back to work, you ought to be ashamed of yourself.

Don’t forget to check back often for updates!
