As I was working on a write-up for today, an email arrived from a friend announcing the birth of his third son, Carson (above). Code-named “Pickles” pre-launch, Carson debuted this afternoon at 2:30 measuring 21” and weighing in at 8 lbs.
Pickles doesn’t know it yet, but he is a very lucky little guy. He has two older brothers: Tyler, who will teach him everything about cars, trucks, and Legos; and, Justin, who will teach him to climb out of his crib, steal toys from Tyler and find the cookies mom and dad hide.
Speaking of mom and dad, Pickles has done well there too. In addition to writing for (at least) one cool thing on occasion, dad is pretty good at sports, camping and poker. Better still, mom is a fun mom who is both talented at fixing owies and very excited about the latest addition to the family.
To my very close friends Warren and Tricia, congratulations! I couldn’t be happier for you, and I can’t wait to meet Carson. And, to their sons Tyler, Justin and Carson, work on your parents. Two more siblings and you can have your own basketball team.
