New Member of the Runblogger Family: Baby Ben has Arrived!

I wanted to take a quick break from running related posts to alert you to some great news in the Runblogger family – baby Ben has arrived! What follows is an excerpt from a post I just wrote (on a new blog called Daddy Duty) about the events of the past few days.

I didn’t expect to be writing this post right now. Last weekend, my wife jokingly (at least I though jokingly!) stated that she would be going into labor on Friday. I brushed the comment aside, knowing that the due date was still almost 3 weeks away. We still had a heckuva lot to take care of before the baby could come, and Friday was just too soon. Among the catalog of unfinished activities were a new addition to the house (2 kids rooms + the nursery!!!) that still needed to be furnished and inhabited, a car seat that needed to be shipped (c’mon Amazon, get that thing out of Phoenix!!!), and a couple of minds that needed a bit more mental preparation prior to being thrust back into full-fledged babydom. However, if there’s one thing I’ve learned now that I’ve experienced three pregnancies, it’s to never doubt a mother’s intuition, and in the back of my head I was prepping for what might happen.

To read the rest of this post – hop on over to my new blog for all things family related: Daddy Duty.

    congrats Pete!

  4. Congratulations! And it’s always nice to hear about a midwife-assisted birth, especially when it’s on one of my running blogs and not one of my birth blogs. Glad the third went so well!

  5. Congratulations! Another future runner in the family.
