Say Hello To Gabriel Noel

Two weeks ago Tuesday my life changed.

I became a daddy and my wife, Melissa became a Mommy.  Gabriel Noel was born on July 27, 2010 at 3:07PM at a whopping 8lbs 6oz and measured 21 inches.

Gabe, as mommy and daddy like to call him, gave us a bit of a scare when he came into our lives.  He had lots of complications and kept his new family on edge and in prayer for many an hour.  But after one week in Stony Brook University Hospital NICU, he came home.  Mommy and Daddy could not be happier.

After a week of adoring our son and welcoming friends and family into our home to see Gabe and visit with us, little thought was given to  But now that I am back to work and the adjustment phase is upon us, I can return to blogging and talking about my favorite hobby.  Wine.

There are alot of exciting wines I have tried and alot of exciting vineyards I visited before Gabe being born — I have a number of Vineyard Visits I need to finish writing —  they will be finished.  I don’t know how often I will be able to post.  I had a good speed going with about three posts per week.  So we shall see.

In the meanwhile, thanks for your patience, prayers and well wishes –now lets continue to explore the great wine region that is Long Island!
