Hey, ya'll. My wife gave birth to a beautiful, healthy little girl last night. Her name is Karissa Joy. Both momma and baby are doing great. Gotta run back to the hospital.

I still want someone to name their daugher "Celeste", though.

Why Celeste? nmraboboy

As a father of 2 girls, your life will NEVER, EVER BE THE SAME!:-) (In a good way, though.) Enjoy her. I'm quite happy that I have 2 girls-they're a little easier than boys, for now.
Shouldn't that be "She's a GIRL!!!!"?bikedodger

I hope you stocked up on sleep, it will be in short supply for a few months.

We have a teenage daughter age 15. Now when I play dad's taxi and drive her here and there we have interesting converstions, something I missed with my two grown sons. Girls are fun but beware they are sneaky little critters and know how the get around their fathers with smooth talk and coy looks.

Like Look271, I too have two little girls, one six and one eight. They both ride multi-speed bikes, and have done MS150 stages. You will be exhausted, delighted, frustrated, amazed, and changed forever. You will also be stupid proud! Get ready for some fun!

We just had our first too in August. Sleep will be tough for a few weeks but before you know it she'll sleep through the night. You'll find yourself peeking in on her in her crib just to stare in fascination. This is the next level in life!
I have one of those too...ACE-

Now a teenager. You have been given the greatest earthly treasure, cherish her always and always be her Dad.

I also, have two girls. One is 4, and the other is 16 months old. The first couple of months is a little rough, but will go by so quickly. The oldest loves to be daddy's "grease monkey" when I'm working on the fleet of bikes (3 mtb & 1 road). I cheerish every single second that we spend in my basement shop together. She also loves to look at my Performance bike shop catalog with me...."ooooh, look at those neat wheels daddy !" I used to read bicyling mag & velonews to her when she was younger for bedtime stories !! Not so sure the wife approved, but it was still quality time together ! Best of luck, health & happiness to all of you !

Nothing better than being a Daddy, is there? Guess that means I'll need a tandem one of these years :-)

Right on, man! I grabbed this handle because I was (more on that later) the proud father of two (2) girls. Twins. Girls are great...for now anyway. I hear that there will be hell to pay when they get to be teenagers. But when mine were 2, I thought that was the coolest age in the world...and every year since then I've thought that it's only been cooler. They are almost 6 now.

Here is where the "was" vs. "is" kicks in. We just had twin sons. Two (2). They are almost 6 months old now, mom and the whole mess of kids are doing great. I still get out for a couple of quick weekend rides (thanks, dear) and work out indoors before work on weekdays. But I am planning on having my own personal peloton when I get older. Windy day? "Kids, let's go for a ride..." "Awww, Dad!!!"

I don't know about you, but I was never very good at sharing my feelings. Having a girl on May 15, 1997 changed that. As soon as she opened her eyes and they pointed in my general direction, my knees grew weak and I knew my life would never be the same. I've learned to say and do things I probably wouldn't have said or done if we'd had a boy at the time. With the exception of the few nights I've been out of the house at bed time, I've put her to bed every night since she was born. Three and a half years later, we had a boy, and I couldn't be happier with him. He's hell on wheels, and I love every minute with him. However, his big sister really warmed my heart. To make things even better, she loves riding her bike with me. Have fun.

I happy for you and your wife and grateful that the delivery went well and both are fine. I cannot wait for my son to arrive at the end of February. He is growing stronger each day and sometimes my hand feels like it is glued to my wife's belly.

a daughter to show you what is important in the world. I have two (along with two boys) but it was my oldest (a girl) that showed me what I had helped create.
