I can remember back to last years php|tek. The morning of my web services workshop I found out that I was going to be a Dad. Needless to say that is one presentation I will never forget. It has been a long 9 months, but I am happy to say that I am now officially a father. My son Dean was born at 1:03 am on Jan 27th. Both Julie and Dean are doing well, though Dean gets to sleep much more than we do. Life sure is going to change dramatically, but none of us would have it any other way. Dean, if you happen to be reading this years from now, pulled from the archives of some search engine, I just have to say that you are the most precious thing to your mother and I (seeing you don't have any siblings....yet).
