Been a bit distracted the last few days with the long over due birth of our little boy Beren :D this sunday afternoon, only 16 days over! and threatening to come on and off for the past few weeks.
I'd been thinking on how this was going to impact on/destroy my practise until I realised that he's probably just what I need to help me be more present, as he is. Hopefully my common lack of 'presence' won't rub off on him.
Clare, my wife in the picture, said her sitting was invaluable during the birth and managed with only a bit of the old gas and air.
Your 'practice' is only beginning! BELIEVE me!
Is he your first?
Our first birth in the Sangha, by the way.
I actually have a teenage/grown up daughter from my first marriage but it feels like this all very new :lol:
Along with everything else here my sittings will need to evolve, or is that revolve, around the new boss of the house.
Plans are for me to be a home Dad when Clare goes back to work after maternity leave :D
OH WOW!! Congratulations!!
All the best.
and the adventure begins,
congrats and good luck
Now that is some really great news! Congratulations!
Congratulations! I wish you and your family all the best!
All the Best and Gassho,
Thanks to you all. I'm sure Daddy-hood will have many challenges and pleasures along the way
You're right Kat some might think it's a bit of a name to live up to, if he did find his Luthien it would be funny :shock:
Congratulations! I wish you all the best for your futures together! :D
Hey! Fantastic! congrats!
Being a Dad is great. That's my little girl scaring the big tuff Buddhist ex-motorcycle racer in my avatar.
How wonderful and delicious and numinous!!! Blessings and blessing heaped upon you. May you all be well, may you all be at peace.
My own babes were the very, very, very best thing I have ever done with my life.
Welcome Little Beren! Good luck on your quest for that Silmaril. :wink:
Congrats, proud Mom and Pop. :D
How beautiful. Best wishes to you and your family, and let me extend my belated welcome to the treeleaf. I am looking forward to sitting in his honor this Friday.
That's great news -- all the best for you and your family!
Congratulations, Kev & Clare!
Wonderful news and a beautiful child.
:D :D :D :D
