I am a very lucky man – I’ve got an amazing wife and am the father to three wonderful kids. Lylli was born on Halloween in 2008, Gracie was born November 2010 and although she only lived for 17 months, she will remain as much a part of this family as the rest of us, and Mickey Gray, our first son, was born in June of 2012. I’m not going to say that life has gone exactly as I would have wanted, but it is a good life and I am determined to make the best of it.

This blog is an attempt to document my quest to become a dad that my family can be proud of.

Its a ....

Well today was the big day -- 20 week ultrasound for the baby due in May. 
It went well, everything looks good and we saw all 4 chambers of the heart.
We are very excited!!
Now I just have to convince the wife that "Buck Delaney" is a cool name -- based on her response to it so far, I'm guessing that's not going to happen.  


  1. Congrats! Buck Delaney doesn't work quite nicely, almost sounds like a superhero or comic book hero:-)
