Yesterday at 4:10am, December 21 2011, our son Brendon Elliot Gonzales was born into the world. At 7 pounds, 12 ounces, and 21 inches tall, he's the perfect (early) Christmas present.
Although he's had a little trouble breathing and is being kept in the NICU for a week while he gets better, we couldn't be happier. I'm excited to be a father and will be spending copious amounts of time holding him in the upcoming weeks.
As I write this, he's finally getting some sleep now that the flurry of visiting friends and family has slightly subsided (emphasis on slightly haha). My wife is also getting some much-deserved rest, and even I am going to try and get a little sleep in. It's been a crazy 60 hours.
