Gunnar Nathaniel Cupp Has Arrived!

Is this the baby Gunnar?  . . . and who's that handsome man?
     Followers of the Farm have heard me make numerous references here to my best friend Adrienne Cupp and her impending delivery.  Well, Gunnar Nathaniel Cupp made good his arrival at 8:49 a.m. today.  Gunnar is 6 lbs. 2.5 oz. and just over 18 inches long.  Mommy and baby Gunnar are both happy and healthy.

     Out of deference to Adrienne's wishes, I won't be sharing any pictures of the delivery.  The internet is full of weirdos - present company excluded, of course - and I suppose I can understand why she's chosen to keep such an intimate experience private.  The picture at right is from my camera.  It depicts a devilishly handsome older gentleman sitting in a hospital glider cradling what could be a baby, could be a swaddled honeydew.  I'll draw your attention to the goofy ass smile on the man's face and advise you to infer what you will.

     This is probably as close as I'll ever get to being a proud Papa, and I couldn't be happier - shaken and nervous, but happy.  Every step of Adrienne's pregnancy was a learning experience for me, but I'm sure my learning has only just begun.  I'm probably still going to get my ass crawled for this post, but dammit, I'm too happy and proud to not take to the rooftops.  I suppose the one thing I have going in my favor here is that Adrienne never looks at this page unless I specifically ask her to.  Nobody reads this page, right?

     Big congratulations to Adrienne, and a big welcome to Gunnar!  I'm so proud of you, Adrienne, and I love you and baby Gunnar more than you know.  I'm misting up as I type this.  Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this.
