Baby Update
Hello Everybody!
1st I wanna say you're HILARIOUS! The Ode to Vert Skating made Dawnie & I laugh til we cried. You guys (& gals) are Talented!!! Let me just say:

My wife Labored Away
For More than a Day
Just to hear her Doc Say
"I'm gonna have to take him out another Way."

But after 30 some hours
In a Room filled with Flowers
Our Lives were made Brighter
By Our NewBorn Son, Ryder.

So in a few short years
Before Cars, Girls & Beers
I'm gonna teach him Not to Hate
And how to Vert Rollerskate! :~)

I'm from Detroit, Peeps. I can Freestyle. Word.

Anyway, as you might imagine I've been BUSY & not getting much Sleep. But, it tickles me to see that my absense was noticed by my People. :)
We were released from the hospital yesterday (Monday 4/06) evening. Had our 1st night at Home & all's well.
I haven't been able to do much with photos. I haven't been online since last week, but had to share a couple things with you guys (& gals).
Before I forget....Robert, way to go on the Layback Airs! Never got those myself.....nice. Sorry about your back. Hope's it's not serious. We want you skating!
Also, Biff, So Stoked to hear YOU are back on 8 wheels again! Way to Go!
Alright, My Son:

Fresh Out of Dawnie's Belly:
Ryder is BORN! April 4, 2009 301pm Pacific Time 4pounds 10 ounces, 17 1/2 inches Long

Dawn & Ryder:

Me Cutting Ryder's Cord:

Ryder Layne Cloetens:

Ryder with my hand next to his head for size comparison....bear in mind I'm no giant. I'm 5'7" & about 160 lbs.(Sorry, my European friends...I can't translate those measurements into Metric.):

And, if you really wanna see him. Here is his only video appearance to date. As I say in clip he's about 1 hour & 10 minutes old here:

He's Small but that's ok. Aren't just about ALL Vert Skaters "short"? I know all the ones I know are. We think he's Perfect & couldn't be more Proud.
OK. Thanks for Humoring me. I hope to SK8 this week but...????I highly doubt I'll have a videographer though. LOL!
You guys all Rock. Thanks again, Bernard for the Mighty Vert Forum! Vert Forum is Wise! Vert Forum is Good!

PEACE & LOVE from a new Daddy......
