1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Wow - what a ride! ... and it's only the start of it all.

    Please say hi to Sam and Leo [​IMG]

    Another question for seasoned fathers out there: does this feeling of joy ever go away?


    Best wishes for their health and happiness! As for the joy, as long as you can make work joy and joy work, the answer is no ... [​IMG]

    Hee hee congrats!!!

    I'm a year and a half in, and so far the joy has slowly faded into a drudgery snapped back into an ecstatic joy and then misery and terror to relief to joy and a warm comfort and so forth. It depends on the day and if anything, it's quite a ride.

    Mazaltov!! What a wonderful Hannukah gift you've received. Both my daughters were born on Hannukah (3 yrs apart) and it's a wonderful way to celebrate each year. Hope everyone is feeling well and adjusting.

    As for the feelings: the euphoria slowly subsides but the joy never goes away as every day brings something new that makes you enjoy them even more - even if you thought that wasn't possible.

    Meilleurs voeux de sante et bonheur pour les nouveaux venus dans la famille G.

    Congrats!

    Another piece of advice (from a son) is to really be their friend from the get go, rather than just the head of the household/provider that commands/demands respect. This kinda goes along with someone else's suggestion of being involved in all their activities.

    Thanks all - I'll pass the welcome words to the boys. [​IMG]

    EL - no they're not and they actually don't look much alike IRL. For the moment, Leo looks more asian and Sam looks more caucasian. - but their faces seem to change a little every day.
