New fisherman, need some help

Well I've got a new fisherman on board and I could really use some help! My son Nathaniel was born very early this morning and both mom and baby are doing well. Me on the other hand, well, I'm scared stiff. It's been 2 years since my daughter was a baby and I don't remember what the heck to do! HELP!!!!!

But seriously, on the one hand I can't wait until him (and my daughter) are old enough to put a rod in their hands, but on the flip side I wish they'd stay the age they are forever.

P.S. the comma in the post title is deliberate, the new fisherman doesn't need help, I do!

Hey Scott
Congratulations!!!

Breast feeding is the best way that the husband can get some sleep.

Good luck.

Thanks guys.

Here's a couple of pictures of me and my two little ones. Now that I have a kayak you guys have a better chance of running into me, and if you do, make sure to say hello! I don't know what most of you look like.

Congratulations Scott!

You look like a natural.....Hey, do kayaks have a spot for a baby seat? A couple of bungee chords and a roll of duct tape and you're all set!
