    My chick is bad ass!
    Last night at 6:30pm, she gave birth to our first baby girl. We have been together since 1993 so this baby has been a long time in the making! ha

    Grace Donovan Glaspell is 7lb 14 oz. Leigh did the birth drug free and is a bad ass. All is well here now we are at home chillin and trying to find the manual on how to take care of a kid!!! We are 2 knuckleheads ourselves so should be fun. Leigh is just glad Grace is out, she was going mental being fat and out of shape...she can not wait to start training for the sea otter-too bad I won't let her race ever again.

    A few pics for those into baby shots, I never was into baby pics (they all look the same) but, things change. ha.

    Stik - CONGRATULATIONS MAN! :thumb:

    Good to hear all is well - my old roomate from Penn State just had his first baby girl too.

    Tell Leigh not to stress - she'll be kicking ass soon enough!

    Peace and Love bro.

    WOW!! Congrats!
    I have been wondering about Leigh and the baby. We raced a Super D race last year and I remember her saying she would not be racing/at the upcoming races because she was starting a family.
    Very cool!!
    What a beautiful child. :)

    Congrats you guys! Leigh is one tough chick! In that first picture, Grace really looks a lot like both of you!

    She better be smooth on a bike with a name like Grace. Wish you guys the best and hope you get some sleep!

    Congrats bro...just you wait....that little girl is gonna have you so wrapped. During the first year all you'll hear is "Momma!" But after that, get ready to have a sweet, shiny eyed porcelein doll strapped to your leg begging "Daddy...Noooooo!" anytime you try to get more than 10 feet from her.
    oh...and at 10-11 months old they can do this!

    Thanks everyone, very, very much appreciated.
    first night at home sucked ass...considering how much I love sleep, this is going to be wicked-haha.
    I still do not know how my kid looks like a chinese dude??? ;-)

    Thanks again everyone, I made this into a PDF file and saved for Leigh, she was psyched.
