    Yeah, I was a bit surprised when the doctors said that they were going to be doing a C-section. The due date is a full month away, but some medical complications necessitated it.

    So as of 3:45 this morning, my wife and I became parents for the first time! He had to be put on some respirators, because he breathed in a bunch of ambiotic fluid and his lungs still needed some help breathing. But he's already doing a lot better and they've taken him off some of the support.

    We have officially named him Tristan Fox. Yeah, both me and my wife are big on animals. She loves frogs and black cats, and I love crabs with their big claws. So Fox it is!

    P.S. we decided long ago to raise him on the 8-bit Nintendo when he's old enough and sprinkle in some modern stuff as appropriate.
    We would play Mario music to him all the time while he was in the womb. And when I played some for him earlier today after being born, he reacted to it like maybe he recognized it!

    Congrats!
    My twin boys were born at 30 weeks, and it was a bit nerve-wracking seeing them in the NICU, but they were well taken care of and they're 3 now.

    Unfortunately, I just can't seem to get them into TFs. They love it when I show them my toys, but they have no interest in playing with the ones they own. It's all Hot Wheels, Blaze, and Thomas trains :p

    Congratulations, man! I hope the C-section goes well.

    Edit: I didn't read the whole thing, the C-section already occurred. Whoops. Either way, congratulations!

    Congratulations to you both. Say goodbye to sleep for a while!

    I'm sorry to hear there were complications, but I'm glad your little one is doing alright.

    Hehehe & when he's old, we can call him Gray Fox!

    Yeah, but that's ok. Every kid's gotta have their own interests, right? We were joking that our kid would grow up to be the least nerdy guy in our family. He'd be all about sports & cars & whatever. He'll think we're way too nerdy & embarrassing. Ahahahaha!!!!

    Congrats! TF, Gray Fox, it's all full of win.

    Say goodbye to full night sleep though, it's literally never gonna happen again for ages. I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old and we haven't had a proper nights rest since the first was born.

    Hooray!

    When you said you played him Mario music, I had a mental image of him making that "blum blum blum" size increase powerup sound as he grows up XD

    Seriously grats Mako!
