    I don't know if any of you remember me posting on here, it's been a long while since I have, but I used to be on here a lot posting dating advice and had a few threads about my Guides to Successful Dating.

    Anyway, I became a dad on 7/19/2008. It really is the most amazing thing ever. People always tell you that you don't know what it's like to be a parent and love a child until you are one and I found out that this holds a lot of truth.

    My daughter Mialee Claire Copeland (Pronounced "My-uh-lee") was born 19 inches and 5 lbs 9 oz. She was about 3 weeks premature as her due date was August 5th. Other than having a low glucose level which caused her to have an I.V. in until her sugar levels came up, and a slight case of jaundice, she was perfectly healthy! We are extremely lucky as she really only fusses when she is hungry or has gas. She sleeps through the night, sometimes 10 hours at a time! If we wake up to her making noises we just have to walk to her crib, give her back her pacifier, and she's right back to sleep. Usually goes to bed around 9 PM and wakes up about 7 AM.

    She's now about 15 lbs and is like 22 inches I believe. Here are some photo's of her progression:

    This was last Saturday. The baby in the blue is her cousin who was born 8/20/08. The others are all babies of friends and they range from June to September.

    Very true! My little girl was born this year and she is so amazing. :)

    One of the best parts of being a parent is watching them discover new things. So much fun!

    Congrats to you!

    Great to see you on here.. its been quite sometime since I've actively posted on the forums.. thats life for ya, sure you can agree! Anyhow, very adorable baby, congrats, I wish you two luck. You were definately a solid guy on here.. good to see things are going well. Let me ask, did your special lady ever get a record contract? I remember the YouTube videos you usto put up of her ( not sure if you still do? I haven't checked ) but she has an incredible voice, am sure someone in a big position noticed.

    Again, congrats on the baby.. nice job there Dad! :)

    I wish, but no. It's very difficult to get noticed. Plus, my fiancee' is very shy and I don't really know if she could make it if we had an opportunity.

    Never say never... she has a shot, American Idol I'm sure would love her. She has a great look, and an incredible voice, thats major points on her side.... I'm sure Simon would give her the thumbs up.. yes, even that prick I'm sure would.

    You never know until you try and for someone who is 'very shy', sure doesn't look like it up there in the videos doing it in front of all those people at the place... that takes a lot of courage to go up and sing your "heart out" like she does..


    Edit, I read the profile of her where you added that she tried out for American Idol twice and got denied, I'm really shocked to say the least... you know that Chris Daughtry lost in American Idol and ended up still becoming a world famous singer even after losing on there..

    Hopefully, if she tries again and gives them some "tv personality" she'll be good to go.. I was offered to be a Spokesperson when they had the castings going on for the first rounds but I was on a Nationwide tour for another company at the time and had to turn it down.
