SABG's Newest Member

On October 29th at 2:50 PM, Vicki and I (well, mostly Vicki) brought a new meeple into the world, Elaina Brielle Kindt, weighing in at 6 pounds, 10 ounces and measuring 19 inches in length. While I will probably be scarce for some time to come, I thank each of you I've gamed with over the past ten months for the wonderful relief you've provided from the stress and anxiety of becoming a first-time father.  Thanks go out especially to Steve for sage parenting tips; Jeff and Amy for all the wonderful advice and goodies; and Chris for his reassurance and knowledge.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Looks like a baby boom at SABG. My wife and I have a new additional due in February. I hope she likes games.

Congrats Ben and Vicki!

And congrats to Elaina, too. Being born is hard work.

Ben that's great news! I have been away for so long that I did not know until now that you had a baby on the way. Just so you know, your gaming life will take on a new and very fun dimension in the next few years. Last night I had a game of Settlers with my wife than three kids. It is fun to see how the youngsters take to a really good game. You can see them work out trades and they will not be duped in a bad trade. You will see!

Nice lookin' kid!

And I'll repeat my sage advice; don't drop the baby.

Congratulations! My one and only niece has the almost-same name Alaina, too.

Not much I can offer in regards to parenting, but get back to me in 18 years when it's college time!

Congrats. Don't drop the baby, indeed. In case you do, don't go bragging to your wife that you get her on the first bounce.

Ben: congratulations.

Like Carlos, this is the first I heard that you were expecting.

Big changes ahead for y'all...
