New wrench hand has arrived

3.5 weeks early but he couldn't wait to get out and start helping me on my (more likely his in the end) 109 build

4lbs 14oz. 18"

Little guy but doing great and so is mom. Couldn't be happier.

Congrats!!! I hope someone gets you a Starbucks gift card! ;-) Caaaaaaaffieeeeeeeeene

Or better yet, put a rocking chair in the garage next to the truck. Hey, it could help!

All the best to mom and family.

Thanks all. Between him and our 18 month old I'm just hoping we still have diesel available when I actually finish the build.

It's funny when my daughter was born I could actually work on the truck while she napped for the first 6-8 months. Maybe I can do the same with him!

Congrats! Glad he's doing OK. Did he get to leave the hospital right away? And what's his name, did I miss it?

Forgot to post his name!

Aaron Saverio......or as everyone has already made official. "A-Aron"

Just had him yesterday so haven't left yet. leaving tomorrow. No NICU despite technically being premature by a couple days. Holding his own on all accounts

We are at jersey shore which has the regional NICU so comfortable in their decision he doesn't need anything special. Just time and boob lol.

Not gonna lie. A wee bit scared lol. Like anything else we'll get through it. I've heard stories of people with 3 or 4 and each no more than 12 months apart so this is probably a cake walk to some
