BOOM!

in life •  last year

IMG-PHOTO-ART--155502537.jpg

Well what can I say?

My previous impatience at the little boom's reluctance to leave the womb perhaps struck a chord with the little chap...

In the dark of the night the good lady started to complain of pains. She refused a tot of whisky to calm her down and instead insisted that it was...

We flew through the night roads and arrived at the hospital in a jiffy. Some people find hospitals a little intimidating but I think you have to make the best of any situation.

Whilst the good lady made bovine noises of distress, I tried on some of their fine hats.

At this point the Doula arrived and swiftly started dispensing flower water to all and sundry. She even managed to make me take some.

Things rapidly came to a crescendo. The universe contrived to position me once more at the foot of the bed. Facing headlong into the mouth of madness which still haunted my dreams after the carnage of my daughter's birth four odd years ago.

I shall spare you the details. Needless to say that this birth was a much easier affair than the last disaster.

In no time at all my son was born, kicking and screaming into the world. I would be lying if I said that I didn't cry. In fact I cried all over the place.

I am very happy. I can't seem to stop tear'ing up though. It's quite disconcerting. I suspect the flower water of course. Bloody Doula's.

I can't resist putting a photo up. It's a bit Facebook'y but who cares.

My amazing boy.

The nurse proclaimed he was 9 pounds. Despite Uncle Boom shouting in my head that he fired nine pounders at those blasted pirates on the Pacific. Nothing came out of my mouth except a croaky qwark kind of noise.

Oh yes, one more thing. I was shown the placenta... Tree of Life my arse!

She will definitely enjoy seeing this :O)

·
·
·
·
·

Really cool! You should definitely serve something up for the next open-mic contest!

Peace.

Congratulations! It was worth the wait!!!!!!! I had just come to your page to look for any news an boom i saw your post in live time! BOOM!

·

ha, fantastic, you cant beat a live update! Cheers @kus-knee! Boom indeed!

·
·

it's not fair!
I was away!
the party's over booo
but damn cute!

·
·
·

Very cute! Anyway the party never gets started to you are here!! :0)

·
·
·
·

lol .. thanks I was away as I tweeted you
date out on the weekend and then some :D
cheers! let me guess what he first had in his bottle?
beer? :D

·
·
·
·
·

Hehe, I think it might have helped him sleep :0D

·
·
·
·
·
·

ahhaha .. you got your beer buddy

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Aw, thats what I am going to call him from now on!

Awww dude!! It's a shame this happened during my time away from the computer machine, but trust me when I say that I looked up to the heavens when it opened up and I was left speechless. The only thing I was able to say at that point was muted, tears-of-joy-filled "BOOM."

When I saw this announced elsewhere, I immediately went on here for the factual details. I'm having trouble crafting a comment because my eyes are welling up and my cheeks are extending upwards impeding my vision. Damn those onion-cutting ninjas and these cheeks that move along with my mouth!! I wish they were soft and cuddly as Boom Baby Dos'!!

Oh he is such a bundle of cuteness!! I can't take my eyes off of him! I keep going back to that pic of him, coo, and when I look at the clock, to my surprise, several minutes of my life has disappeared.

I'm glad the flower water did wonders for everyone involved. No bloody octopuses here! I must say, this is my favorite Sabeerday post you've made, perhaps of all time. 10000000/10 for that cute little cerveza! Words alone cannot express the joy I feel for your family, dude! So, for the benefit of the good (and bad) people of Steemit...

BOOM-baby

·

Aw thanks mate!

It was quite a time. I couldnt believe the difference from the first time. I mean I am not going to say it was easy as that would be doing a disservice to the good lady but it was way better than before.

I think this might be my favourite Sabeerday too!

I think the flower water has ruined me. There is definitely something untoward going on :O)

·
·

I'm sure your Doula would agree. The Doula is the difference ;) I'm so happy that your little lady readily accepted her brother. Quite too often, the firstborn doesn't readily accept a newborn with open arms. I should know :/ I'm sure they would have loads of fun growing up together and plotting your eventual downfall and being all around model citizens!!

·
·
·

Will it's funny you say that. We got him home today and the histrionics and tantrums have been quite the thing from the little lady. It's been quite hard to deal with. I know that given a couple of days she will be fine and indeed they can start to plot my eventual downfall!!!

·
·
·
·

Haha! I think it's normal. At least, that's how I would like to think of it. She had been so used to be center of attention, the lone apple of all eyes, and now she is being replaced by a tinier, cuter version. It's not something that even I took lightly. Though, I do hope she realizes there's nothing to worry about sooner than I did. I'm sure she will realize it sooner haha!

·
·
·
·
·

I ain't so sure!! Did it take you many a year?

·
·
·
·
·
·

Ahahahaha! Hahaha! Haha! Ha! Ahh... Yes :/

·

Cool sunglasses.

·
·

I'm thinking it's the baby who gives it that cool factor :D

·
·
·

HAHA yeah of course it must be! 😀 😃 😄 😁 😆

Congrats on the arrival of Baby Boom. "I am very happy. I can't seem to stop tear'ing up though. It's quite disconcerting. I suspect the flower water of course."...., flower water my arse!

·

Oh my goodness me! Thank you very much for your kindness! Tears... again! DAmmit!

I will put it toward something fabby for the little man!

·

Hahahaha, oh you got me there!!

Perhaps not the flower water. Maybe its the pollen, is this one of them high pollen days??! ;O)

·

Maybe you are getting mommy fever.....
;-)>

·

Congrats Boomers, welcome to planet earth and the blockchain!

9lbs, ooft! He pure fell out! In the nicest possible way of course :O)

·
·

I hope your wife is doing well and getting plenty of rest.

·
·
·

She is, she did amazing. I am very proud of her. She and he get home tomorrow and she can rest like a maddie :0)

Baby Boom will forever have a different significance for me now! :) I want to kiss those beautiful chubby cheeks!! So happy for you my darling friend, what a lucky baby to have such an awesome dad!!

·

Hehe, I am glad you got to see :O) Cool name eh! And such chubby little fellow cheeks! Ah he is a wee cracker. Get him home tomorrow and the good lady too :OD

·
·

I love the name! Biblical boom, haha! (I actually have a story about that name I'll have to tell you in chat)
I love your daughter's name too, in fact another book I wrote that might eventually make its way on steemit the main character is... Aryanne...LOL.

·
·
·

Heheh, that is fabulous! I liked Aryanne!

I love the biblical boom! I look forward to hearing that story. We were hunting high and low for names and the good lady mentioned it and I thought cor, thats awesome! The middle name has a total story behindit too!

·
·
·
·

I wrote to you in fb messaging :)

We also didn't come by our kid's names easily. My daughter's name has a great story...actually I started writing a post about it awhile back, maybe I'll finish that one :)

·
·
·
·
·

You should definitely finish it and get it up!

FB messenger, I actually opened it by sheer coincidence!

Yeeeey! Congrats my friend!!! You'll be an awesome father! The Steemit education for boys starts on day one! so... ;) It's a very beautiful baby! Congrats to the Mom! :)

·

Wayhay! cheers mate, you are entirely right! I thought of you when I stuck the non cartoon filter pic at the bottom :OD

Congratulations..wow what a beautiful little chap that looks like Milord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are indeed the daddy...The little chap looks like you in baby like image. I wish you , the good lady and all your family more success and babies (20 of them) in the future

·

I will take the congratulations but no more babies after this one!! I dont think I could take it let alone the good lady!

·
·

Hmmm MiLord, babies are a big blessing especially if steem price reaches 2000 then you can take in at least 20 as your buddy wished you. Remember you can then have your own Island near the main land and we all will celebrate with you especially birthday...please extend my greetings and praises to The Good Lady who did an excellent production job.

·
·
·

Right, as soon as that steem price hits 2000 I will start the impregnating! ;O)

·
·
·
·

Ooh! Maybe you should start his account right now?

·
·
·
·
·

Lol, imagine that. Actually, I could imagine that.

Waited till the big with the funny nose changed my nappy. As soon as he closed up the flaps I shat in it. Maybe he will realise now that I, am the daddy.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Hahaha! Wait til he pees in your eye!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I can see that happening. It's like an anti aircraft gun tracking the sky!

·
·
·
·

Hihahahahahahah now you are back in your ole self Milord!!!! I will look for steemit ladies and let them be ready ..when price reaches 2K then babies will be flowing like water...we will get our own Island with steemit babies Hiyaaaaaaa

Feel free to see my post on the latest scam and phishing going on on steemit, your support will give it more exposure, thanks..Wish you a blessed day.

·
·
·
·
·

A very good post it was too, we all have to be incredibly vigilant.

I look forward to the island populating!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Amen ....we look forward to expanding...greetings to the good lady...a great day indeed.

·
·
·
·
·

A very good post it was too, we all have to be incredibly vigilant.

I look forward to the island populating!

Congrats to you and the family My Friend!!! :)

·

Cheers mate! We are so happy to finally meet the little blighter! :OD

·
·

Yessss!!! :)

Congratulations to you and your family! Thought things were too silent at your side of the Steem realm. Like: "Wot, no beersaturday...!?"

And then there it was, the happy news and a proud loving Dad with his newborn! That smile, I know it, it is the best feeling there is.

Cheers man, enjoy!

·

Ha! You know, it has all been such a blur that I forgot yesterday was saturday! No beer saturday indeed!

It is quite the daft smile you get at times like this isnt it! Cheers mate. WE are awfully happy!

·
·

Ahh bless hes such a cutey, definitely does not take after daddy as he is far to good looking, blooming shame that HAT wasn't full. heehee Congratulations you all of you especially to mum for doing such a fabulous job :)

·

You know you are quite right. Mum did contribute a little to the gargantuan effort of it all. She deserves alittle mention :OD

He will be a charming handsome devil just like his daddy! :O)

·
·

She deserves an award and you should be praising her for what she has made for you even though you had 5 minutes in the preparations :)

·
·
·

I laid the groundwork and gifted the seed. She ket it warm for a wee while its true :O)

·
·
·
·

3 minutes including a coffee break and you have the nerve to Brag haha

·
·
·
·
·

It was a strong coffee :O)

·
·
·
·
·
·

In a mug :0

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Unless otherwise that where I always splag my Chisholm's!

Congratulations, that's what I call a baby Boomer!

·

heheheh, he aint half!

Thank you for posting @meesterboom.

Congratulations.....a wee lad babe.

How sweet is that.....Sweet...... ^_^

Here's to life...with Boom. Cheers.....

·

Thank you @bleujay! We are all very happy indeed!

Hers to you, to life! You would like the name. I must pass it on to you, I know you would appreciate it

Congratulations! I suspect he will be earning his keep by starting his own Steemit account and giving the old man a run for his money before the week's out. The chip off the old block will keep you sharp. Or perhaps just confuse your followers with the ensuing befuddled articles spilling from a sleep deprived mind. Either way, I'm looking forward to it!

·

I will go for the sleep befuddled articles. I aint entertaining no rival boomery on this platform LOL!

Congratulations to you Meester and to the good lady too. Even to Doula.

·

The doula was fabulous. Despite the flower water, cheers mate!

Yay! Congratulations all round. So begins a new chapter in the lives of Boomdawg, the good lady and their wee firecracker. If Mr Amazing has half as much spunk as your daughter, you're all in for a wild ride! And we get to look on in amusement. But today is just for happiness.

·

It is, if only the tears would stop :OD

A gentlemans family someone said to me. They have no idea how much that amused me!

·
·

Aw, and they were just trying to say something nice. Bwahahahahah....

·
·
·

Hahah, They were. I was like snorfle!

Congrats man! Baby boom looks stunning! Wwwoohooo no more 2 meager beer Saturday posts either!

·

Hahah, you read my mind on the beer posts! Cheers man!

Congratz to you and the good lady !
Say hi to the little fellow from me.
Could say something about scrambled placenta.
But I'm not going to , it's to nasty..
Instead I'm gonna drink a nice beer to celebrate this.
Cheers ! On the Boom-family and it's new member !

·

Drink a beer! I wonder if the good lady will lt me get away with a beering tomorrow?

I really did see it, a foul thing.Like quivering bloody purple brains, blegh

I just opened a Rodenbach !
Cheers ! :xD

·
·
·

Sounds flippin marvellous! I will be having something tomorrow!

·
·
·
·

Enjoy your tasty drink !
You have the best reason ever to toast.
Possibly typo's for free. :-))))

Oh he is simply beautiful! Congratulations and Well Done Mrs Boom!

·

She did awesome well. Almost equal to the effort I put in myself! ;0)

·
·

I bet she took a hell of a lot longer and it amounted to more than two pumps and a wiggle... ;)

·
·
·

Lolz. Just about! Can't beat that final wiggle ;0)

·
·
·
·

Yep... that's the... no... I mustn't... bad!

·
·
·
·
·

Hahaha, yes indeed, lines must be drawn!! :0D

Baby Boom is finally here!!!

·

BOOMTASTIC! :O)

What good news glad everything went according to plan. Wish the good lady my best and may you enjoy your son. It is a wonderful job you were given to have one of each my husband @methusalem saw it first and said go see that beautiful boy in mr Booms arm. May he bring your family a lot of happiness.

·

I shall pass on your good wishes. Today be the day he comes home from hospital. HAppy days!!

Congratulations. a good 9 pounds. Any steemit username registered yet? :-)

·

Hehe, not quite yet! Cheers mate!

·
·

Guess. Email and mobile number first for verification.

Oh my I am so happy, you can now have your 9 beers as he weighed 9 pounds that is a beer per pound. You migt need it before he comes home.

·

9 beers eh! I am oddly with you on that one!

Congrats - may he bring you lots of joy and happiness. And you may tear up as much as you want to. It is a little miracle and your live will never be the same. Enjoy every moment

·

I shall take that permission to tear up and tear up again!! :OD

·
·

O believe me you are going to still cry a lot of tears so just embrace it

·
·
·

Aw no! I cant take it!

Congratulations! What a sweet little face he has! I came over to see what the hold up was and Boom!!! He was here!

So happy this day has come! You are truly blessed.

·

HEhe, cheers! He has the cutest little face!

I am glad the hold up is over!

Awwww, how precious!!! You are blessed.

Btw, great artwork at the start...definitely worth framing.

Peace.

·

Thank you very much. I was considering doing just that! :O)

Wahey!!! Congratulations to all your family!!

Wonderful, happy news. Huzzah huzzah huzzah!!

Awwwww he's all squishy and beautifully delicious! BOOM indeed! :D

·

He is all squishy and lovely. I cant stop wanting to have him on me!

·
·

Oh yes, one of the best feelings in the world!

Oh shit...... now you've got me wanting another one. XD

·
·
·

Oh shit, fuck that!

Lol, I mean at this moment in time I have the warm little snufflebum lying on me sleeping but this is defo the last child o' mine!!

·
·
·
·

HAHAHA!!

As our midwife said to us at our first appointment after unexpectedly getting preggo with number 3:

Yeahhh, nobody plans the third one....

Lol!!

Awww, glad it all went well and you're having nice snuggles. :)

·
·
·
·
·

Hehe, loads of people have told us that.

I mean it though, I am ancient, another one would do me in!!

·
·
·
·
·
·

The KLF 'Justified and Ancient' song just started playing my head when I read that lol!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Haha, now I can't get that one out of my head!

Congrats!

Does he have a Steemit account already?

·

I aint telling ;O)

Congrats Mr Boom 👶 See? I told you he will choose to make his grand entrance on the weekend! Great news , you looked chuffed!

·

I was most definitely chuffed as anything. I cant get the smile from my face!

·
·

I can imagine! Let us know what you decide to name him. Hope the good lady is doing well :)

·
·
·

Hehe, I wish I could but I get the fear at passing on such info indelibly to the blockchain!

·
·
·
·

I completely understand :)

Thanks for sharing this. Don't envy you those sleepless nights although boys tend to be better at settling into a routine they tell me. Didn't notice much difference between the sexes with my kids tbh.

·

Yeah, people have told me all sorts of boys versus girls type stuff but a few have also told me its rubbish!

·
·

Everybody's an expert where kids are concerned. Personally I love it when some sociopath is congratulated on "looking after" their kids. Yes and so does a sewer rat. Congratulations you've done the minimum amount to qualify as a mammal lol

·
·
·

It's true, some right dodgy folk think they are doing a grand job by default!

Congratulations to you and your good lady. Every man should have a son to carry on his name. I'll toast his health this evening with a snifter of Raymond Ragnaud Vintage 1906 I've been saving for a special occasion.

·

I can think of no finer snifter! ;O)

You are right of course. The name must live on!

Congratulations!!! Thank God it went so well! Eagerly awaiting a post on your son's first impressions of this world...he can count on a good following!!
He looks so cute!!!

·

He is very cute. I had forgotten the little animal like snuffling things they are when this young. His cry sounds a bit like a laugh and that made my heart go all aw!

·
·

Absolutely adorable at this stage!

·
·
·

Definitely are, the first month or two is a total joy!

Big congratulations! I can notice the impact of the day's emotion on your writing. My best wishes to the Boom family 😊

·

Lol, yes it did hav a bit of an impact. I was a bit scatterbrained!

Congratulations on the wee baron! Although at nine pounds that is more of a whopper! He looks amazing. Healthy and robust. Cheers to the family! I am glad you passed on the partaking of the placenta...Give the mum lots of cuddling, she did a fine job!

·

I am ever so proud of the old mummy bear. She was fantastic. I think that is half why I am so emotional.

He is a robust wee fellow. Our daughter was only 7 and the difference is massive!

·
·

Congratultions again, proud papa.

You survived just like a dad should, well done, congratulations to the worker, and the soon to be new steeminian.

·

Cheers mate, as long as he doesn't out post me lol!

Congratulations to you and your family on your wonderful new little arrival. He looks like a healthy little bundle of joy. Before long you will be teaching him about cryptocurrency, but hopefully that’s not his first word. Also well done to the new mommy, I can’t imagine delivering 9lbs. All of mine were 7lbs and under. Congrats again and enjoy the wonderful times that await you and your family.

·

Cryptocurrency works be a fine first weird but I will settle for daddy :0)

Our first was 7lbs, the difference is quite remarkable! The mummy did amazingly well!

·
·

Maybe a third or fourth word after family members of course :) That is great, hope she is getting her much needed rest now. Best wishes to you all.

·
·
·

She is in hospital for 24 hours so probably not but as soon as I get her home today she will be able to get tons of rest!

·
·
·
·

That’s great and thoughtful of you. Best wishes to you.

Huge congratulations!!!

·

Wayhay! Cheers mate!! Happy times!!

Oh great, I'm so happy for you and your 'good lady'. Nine pounds, that is a lot to deliver! But you will be very proud of your wife I think. You already have a daughter, you wrote, so now you have a family of four! I wish you and your family much happiness and I hope that everything is alright with your wife and that she will recover soon.

·

It was a lot to deliver. The good lady did amazing. A family of four with one of each, A splendid state of affairs. She is already recovering well. The birth was the polar opposite of the first one

Congratulation, dear @meesterboom !!! It's a gret sweet news! Kisses and hugs to your wonderful family! <3 <3

·

Cheers missus!! Its alll boomtastic here!

Grats, @meesterboom! Glad everyone is healthy and happy!

·

Then you, we are and feeling smashing!!!

Fantastic post and I wish steemit had a sticky or pin option because this is one of those Unique posts.

·

You know I have thought that before. Should badger the devs! And thank you :O)

Congratulations!!! Does BabyBoom have a name yet?

·

He does, but its a not for perpetual blockchain name! Its such a cool name too!I would love to share it

·
·

Completely Understand. Congratulations again my fine man.

oh man, finally, that is quite the news .. CONGRATS !! :)

·

Cheers dude!

WOWOW! Congraboomlations! :)
