On May 19 2008, 11.06 pm, God blessed me and my wife JungMin with a healthy and happy baby boy. Aidan SooMin-Kim Smith Aidan was born weighing just over 3kg and was 50cm long. (~6.6 lbs and 20")

We couldn't be happier.

Ha ha, yeah, I'll train him a bit when he's young then have a more experienced person train him when he is older (if he still wants to train), but I know my wife would freak if he ever competed.

For sure. I held him for about 1.5-2 hours while my wife recovered and I my legs were shaking. It was a little surreal at first, but it becomes more of a reality with each passing day.

Always a good lesson to live by: Be very careful about going against the missus's wishes. He might be better off just being a trainer at some point or being involved in a non-fighting role (maybe a cornerman or working behind the scenes).

Thanks everyone.

These first few days at home have been great and tiring (though I am sure those of you with kids know of what I speak)

It's amazing how you notice the little improvements each day.

If he learns an armbar by age 5, you are doing well.

Well, he's able to grab my finger and hold on to it right now, so we're taking baby steps toward more advanced techniques.

Wow, didn't expect this thread to get bumped. lol

We've already started training. So far he's got a good up kick. He also has a good lapel grab. Must be his Korean name and the connection to Olympic gold (lol)
