A Personal Note…

Mrs Jarhead gave birth today to our daughter Natalie.  Everything went well and mother and daughter are both doing awesome.   She weighed in at 8 lbs 5 oz, was 20 1/2 inches long, and is beautiful!

I had promised a few people I’d let them know when she came, so here’s that quick note!

    Absolutely fantastic, congratulations to you both! Your world just shrank, perspectives will change & that’s a great thing.

    Natalie was a name we chose for our daughter but at the last minute -literally, my wife wanted a different name. To this day, 17 years later, I wished we had given her that beautiful name.

    You’re a blessed man my friend ~
