Introducing: "Uh-Oh!" Brady Thomas Miller

Over the past week Brenda and I have engaged in several heartfelt conversations regarding the naming of the baby. It almost felt like we were in the courtroom, each of us pleading our case to the other. Then something happened, something that made me defenseless. She pulled out the ultimate secret weapon--a weapon that only women seem to possess--a weapon more powerful than logic--a weapon no man has an answer for. She cried... OK, so she cried after I gave the green light on Brady, but just the same it was all over for me--case closed, nail in the coffin, final buzzer, end of story, checkered flag, game over, gavel down, judgment to Brenda. "Ryan, you are hereby sentenced to consume SpaghettiOs for the rest of your life."

Okay, so it's not a bad name. Brady is already growing on me. And above all, we are blessed to have a healthy, "spirited" baby.

Thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers, and naming guidance.

That's the cutest bundle of spaghettios I've ever seen - he looks so much bigger every picture. I'm thinkin forget little z for the nickname and stick with spaghettios. I bet you could tell him honestly it's our new favorite dish ;o).

Brady - I like it. Think Tom Brady, The Brady Bunch, Kyle Brady (of Penn State fame).

Congratulations! I am glad to hear that Brady and Brenda are both doing well. Hope you enjoy your paternity leave. Talk to you later.

Brandon, Kyjah, Owen and Norah
