April Fools Day Baby

April Fools Day, a time when gags and jokes are rampant and never seem to get old. I can remember hanging out with my friends and pulling dumb pranks against the local folks, some things that could have gotten us in real trouble, if we were caught that is. I feel that since I've gotten older, April 1st has been overlooked year after year. I'm older and just don't have the time to dabble in foolishness.

Ian's daughter Liliana
So guess what! To celebrate April Fools Day this year I became a father! My daughter was born today at 10:03am, weighing in at 9lbs 14oz. She is absolutely beautiful and I'm so very happy to have her. My wife was able to avoid the C-Section and deliver our girl, Liliana into our lives. For those of you who didn't know we were expecting a child, perhaps you should look back at my historic baby blog posts, Having a Baby!? and Having a Baby!? Part 2

A few hours after she was born, I decided to use my Samsung Wave smartphone to record a quick video of Liliana trying to sleep. She probably would have slept if I kept my finger out of her face. Please note that I consider myself to be technically sound and the quality of the video is not a true representation of the Samsung Wave and it's 720p recording power. This is a lower grade quality video taken to maximize space and make uploading easier, all future videos will be the highest quality possible.

I'm curious to knowhow you celebrated April Fools Day 2011 or if you have a child that was born on April Fools. Feel free to comment as I would like to hear your April Fools stories.



  1. I met this little girl today and let me tell you she is the most wonderful baby in the world.

    She is already so smart and strong! You both are so lucky to have a baby as perfect as her.. Especially on April Fool's Day. That is so awesome!

  2. Thank you for the kind words. I'm so happy to have a daughter and I'm proud of her mother for bringing her into world. Damn I'm tired though :)
