Welcome to the world!

Byron Ely Scaletta (my son and first child) was born today at 7:58 PM. He’s already a hero to me… initially he had trouble breathing, and I was told he’d spend a day or two in special care. Within an hour the prognosis was that he could leave special care and visit his mom in an hour or two. He’s already fighting, beating the odds and surpassing expectations. Check out the “raging bull” pose in picture 1! But picture 2 shows that he’s also a dreamer, and I’ll bet his dreams will change the world.

I’ve never felt more like jumping up and down for joy and bursting into tears at the same time.
