Best wishes for your new family addition. My youngest son just turned 20, the elder son is 26 and my oldest is travelling for 3 weeks on her own in Australia. Seems like yesterday that they were this small.

Fellas! Just checking in to say I'm not dead (yet.) My son was born!

IMG_20190205_124603.jpg


Little guy came in a very surprising way. He's actually not supposed to be out yet... My wife was due Feb 25. Her water broke at 33 weeks while she was attending her baby shower in Austin, TX, with her family. After living in the hospital for 2 weeks together, my wife doing her damndest to keep him in the womb as long as possible, he was born 35 weeks old on Jan 23.

We are all doing great. He never had to go to NICU, in fact, he stayed in our arms from minute 1 until we were discharged 2 days later on my birthday. Happy birthday, dad! 😅

Now he's a 37 week-old budding Porsche cup driver (ref: pic above) and we are getting ready to drive back to Vegas on the 13th as a big/little happy family.

Anyway - just wanted to check in and spread the joy with my Porsche buddies. Oh! And reassure you that I'll be back soon to BS on the regular with you. (Sorry! 😉)

-Adam
Adam,

First of all... congratulations daddy-man!!! What a beautiful child. A deep reminder of what life is truly about... cherish every moment my friend!
2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

DR: Congratulations! He is one cute kid. He may keep you a little busy for a while longer.. at least another 21 years longer. Enjoy! :D

Holy crap! I just realized that it's been 9 months and my youngest hasn't ridden in the 996 yet! I suck as a dad :oops:



His first car ride was in a Porsche though so I fully expect him to have as skewed of a car view as his brother :roll:

DAMMIT! I didn't win a GTS from PCA. Looks like I will have to have my poor man's Porsche repaired, after all!

Isn't what you could resell the GTS for the entry level price for a Jake motor anyway? :lol:

Mobil 1 0W40 per the sticker, but I've been finding chunks in the pan between changes. Is this normal? 😲
