MAX!


I'm a dad! My son, Max Lonnie Keele was born on Oct. 17th-the day the population in the U.S. reached 300 million and exactly 2 weeks before Halloween. At birth he weighed in at 7 lbs. 10 oz. and was 19 and a half inches long. He's named after the main character in the book "Where the Wild Things Are" and his grandpa. Both he and my wife, Heather, are doing great and I couldn't be happier.
When we got him home, one of the first things I did was draw him. He's often got this funny, thoughtful scowl on his face (which I tried to capture). Heather thinks he turned out looking a little like the Brain from Pinky and the Brain (in my drawing, not in real life). I don't think he currently has any plans to take over the world, but who knows what the future may hold...

Welcome to the diaper club. The first rule of diaper club is that we don't talk about diaper club. Cool drawing, can't wait to see some pics of the little guy.

Congratulations Kevin!! Being a dad is hard, but awesome.

I tried to do a drawing of Abe when he was born, but kids are hard to draw! I think he ended up looking like some kind of puffy-faced demon baby. So really, Pinky and the Brain isn't too bad of a result.

So wait, what's the second rule of the diaper club? I am really excited for you too! I love that you got his name from such an awesome book. I keep trying to get my wife to let me name our kids something cool, but I don't think she will budge on that. And if she does it'll probably be something like Mr. Big from Sex and the City. Anyway, love the pic, but can't wait to see the little guy in real life. And thanks for the comment! That was exactly what I was going for. Later!

Congrats Kevin... Only 2 more and you will be at the same level of insanity as me! Very cool stuff tho- not much compares to being a Dad! You will have a new source of inspiration now!!
