If you're reading this, I am now a father.
My wife, Ariel, and I welcomed a baby girl, Lucy Renée, on Tuesday at . She weighed 5 pounds, 15 ounces, and was 19 inches long.
It's our first child and, as the cliché goes, words can't describe what I'm feeling.
I just wanted to drop a quick note to let everyone know that I'll be off for a few weeks to ease into my new role as daddy.
Michael Garlitz, who should be a familiar name, will run Northfield Patch in my absence. If you have any questions, comments, story ideas or news tips, you can reach him at my email at email@example.com. Yes, my email.
Otherwise, see you in a few weeks!
