My New Arrival

Please allow me to introduce my beautiful new daughter who arrived (very appropriately some have said) on Halloween.

20131102-213336.jpg

We have named her Ava Jaime, and she is the most beautiful and amazing thing the world has ever seen. Although it’s likely I’m biased.

Blogging will naturally take a hit for a while as time may be at a premium, but I hope to see you all soon. :)

    • Thanks buddy, currently making a list of questions for you lol. You picked the wrong guy to start a blogathon with ;)

      We will win a lammy 2014, we just need to make a category about best De Niro sites :)

      • Haha! It’s no bother at all. I’ve really not been watching much of late to add to my own site anyway. I’m happy to keep plodding on with our joint site. What good is a business partner when he can’t take the weight when the other is preoccupied?

        • I was planning an epic 2 part review round up on my site of about 20 films. I got 3 lines into it and then Ava decided to arrive 2 weeks early and scupper my plans!

          At least with the blogathon we got the suckers to do the work for us ;)

          I suppose I’ve been picking up your slack since we started so it evens out now ;) haha thanks matey

  23. Big congratulations! I just welcomed the baby Gunnar on March 1st of this year myself. I’ve already been caught by his mother on more than one occasion watching “questionable content” with the baby in the room. He seemed to really like Jess Franco’s Bloody Moon. On the other hand, I frighten him when I sneeze, so he may need more conditioning.

    • Haha more conditioning sounds good! We’ve watched Max Payne & Friday 13th so far but she slept through both.

      Thanks, and congrats to you :)

  27. I’m mildly jealous your kid is born on Halloween and mine is September 10th, but I’m just relieved the Bean didn’t wait for September 11th. Congrats, bud, and here’s to hoping she’s healthy and QUIET! I hope you slept well on the 30th. Remember it fondly.

      Thanks mate, I always heard the lack of sleep stories but after 3 nights of zero sleep I’m beginning to understand. :)

      • The worst is that even when you’re asleep, you’re kinda not. The first month, every random grunt, peep or coo results in my eyes shooting wide open and debating whether I should check on her or not. Friday was the first night Lila slept for more than 3 hours, and even then, I kept waking up every half-hour (for 7 hours!), because its so far from the norm I had to make sure she was still breathing. You just can’t win.

  56. A Halloween baby is very special! Keep your eyes peeled for when all of her super powers start to develop. When she’s able to lift the couch so her mom can vacuum underneath it at the age of 2, it’s a good indication that she possesses superhuman strength.

    She’s beautiful, Tyson! You and your wife made a very pretty baby girl. So happy for you both! My daughter was almost born on Halloween but she waited until Nov 2nd. I love her name, too. Best wishes on the start of an awesome journey through fatherhood, man. Cherish every second. (Even those that will include her giving you tons of grief when she’s a teenager!) :)

  71. She’s a beautiful little girl! Congratulations!

    I’ll offer some advice. Take many photos. Keep a diary of all the amazing things she does. When she starts to talk, include all the funny things she says in the diary. Don’t blink too often. Every time you do, she’s going to grow a little older. Before you know it, she’ll want to start life on her own and you won’t understand where all the years went.

    See ya

    P.S. Give your wife a kiss…she did most of the work.

    • Thank you, for everything you said. We are taking millions of photos and videos, and have so much written down. It’s scary, 3 and half months old, she’s changed so much. I can’t wait to see her grow, yet I already miss her being tiny. I never believed people when they said you never know love like you love your children. Now I know. :)
