Title: New Baby Boy - New Brew!
Post by: mmitchem on October 15, 2012, 12:53:06 AM
My wife and I just had our first baby yesterday! So excited. Can't wait to get home and start in on a new celebration brew. It will be a wood aged wee heavy aptly dubbed 'Little Red Head'. Awesome where inspiration can come from. Cheers!

Congrats.  My boy is running around right now with nothing but a diaper causing trouble.

Have fun!

Been a wild 24 hours but completely life changing. I would wonder about myself if it didn't. ;)

Congratulations!  Being the father of a son is the coolest thing in the world.  You get to grow up all over again, and the toys are a whole lot cooler this time around!

They grow up REALLY fast.  Enjoy every minute.  He'll be headed off to college in a few weeks.

Congrats!!!

My little boy went to college this Fall.  It feels like just last week we were at the point you are.  The advice for a parent is the same as for home brewing, Relax!  He will teach you stuff you can't imagine.

Congrats on the new arrival.  You should brew a beer for mama too.  Maybe a session beer if she's intending to nurse.

indeed congrats. and +1 to a momma beer. Our midwife suggested about 8 oz a day of really hoppy beer for my wife after the birth as it encourages milk production. Not to mention relaxation.

Congrats!  My little girl just turned 8 and got her ears pierced this past weekend.  +1 to enjoy every minute.  I remember being in your shoes like it was yesterday.

+1 to the celebration brew as well as the momma brew too!

You guys make me feel old.  My youngest is 22, and in the middle of a move away from our home town.  Oldest is now 24. 

Savot of minute you have with your kids.  Last night we were at my Daughter in laws, they have two boys, one is 2, and the other about 6 months.  They were having a fit, both crying at once, the 2 year old being, well, a 2 year old.  She was so apoligetic.  I told her it sounded like christmas to me........

My two are 30 and 16, when together they both act like they're 5 though.

Congrats! +1 on the session beer for ma'ma.  Almost 2 years ago I did the same and in return my wife let me off the hook with a lot of late night feedings.

I like it! Mama needs to get back on the horse. A pale ale might be the ticket. Like an Eagle Rock Revolution clone...or something similar. I admit I almost never clone...just take a rough outline and fill in the gaps as the brewday progresses ;) Any other suggestions? I am thinking a hoppy session beer...
