George William’s Birthday

Alabama

My son was born this evening at 8:46 PM. He is 6 pounds and 13 ounces and 21 inches long. It was a long and exhausting experience, but is true that you don’t know what love is until you see your own child.

    He’s a cute little guy. It’s a wonderful thing.

    Birth has always been a female thing. That’s why there were midwives instead of mid-men. Women didn’t want men in the process.”

    Jack replies:

    Agreed. And very well said!

    I caught some flack suggesting Hunter should wait under the delivery in a near by bar, have a beer and not intrude in to a woman’s place.

    I like the idea of Midwives, instead of women lawyers, women in combat.

  2. Congratulations! I am curious though, what type careers do Hunter and his lovely wife have?

  3. Long time reader here, but not much of a commenter. Congrats on the birth of your son. I well remember holding my first son for the first time some 25 years ago. As much as I used to avoid holding babies prior to then, it was the most natural thing imaginable to hold him.

    From Handel’s Messiah..

    That’s “Unto us…”.

    From “The Green Leaves of Summer”:

    A time just for planting, a time just for ploughing
    A time to be courtin’, a girl of your own
    ‘Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth
    And to stand by your wife, at the moment of birth.

    Alas, I never did – they wouldn’t let me in the operating theatre. Did you, Hunter?

    Congratulations to you both. You done good.

  5. I think girls should get to attend a real birth at a young age. Boys obviously not.

    The medicalization of childbirth is very destructive, in my opinion. Women do not belong in combat and men should not be at the childbed.

    But that’s just my opinion.

  6. Bless you, and your wonderful wife, and your adorable son! HAVE MANY MORE!!! You make good ones!

    Love and my best wishes,
    Denise!

  7. I think women have always wanted to shield men from the realities of childbirth just as men have wanted to shield women from the realities of combat and warfare.

    However, it worked for you’all congratulations on the birth of your son. Children are a blessing not only to the parents but to their clan and kin. Let us hope you can help young Whites to re-discover this truth.

  8. Didn’t you ‘cut the cord’, HW?

    I got to do that each time we had a child. A defining moment, of bringing the child fully into their own, in the world.
