Our First Born Has Arrived - Say Hello to Vincent Cole!
Last Update: Jun 19, 2017
Amanda and I have anxiously been awaiting out first born to arrive. He was set to show up on June 3rd, but was a little too cozy in there and waited until the 13th to come out.
After a brief 38 hours of labor, all 9lb 5oz of Vincent showed up without any issues. He's happy, healthy, and loves to be held. His hobbies include eating, sleeping, and having the hiccups.
Amanda is doing great as well. No way would I have had the strength or courage to go through what she put her body through the past 9 months. She's a true rockstar and I love her more and more each day.
He also has more hair than I have ever seen on a baby. Every nurse and doctor we've met has said they can't believe how much hair a new born could have.
The birth of Vincent marks the biggest change in my life so far. I am forever grateful that I have a business that allows me to spend as much time with my new son as possible. I will actually get to raise my own child which seems to be too rare these days.
Internet marketing, Wealthy Affiliate, and my own pursuit of success have all helped me reach this point and there isn't anywhere else I'd rather be.
Congratulations and God Bless to you, Amanda and Vincent. He's a cutie and yes, that is the most hair I have ever seen on a newborn.
Now when you have a conversation with people wanting to start a family and have their first little addition you can say, I've Tried That. haha I couldn't resist. :)
Aww what a little cutie pie! Congratulations to you and Amanda, Steve! Sweet little Vincent...makes me a bit misty-eyed at the memories of my own two. (Boy and girl)
Yep...firstlings tend to not wanna come out. Ha ha! Soo cozy and safe inside!
Well Steve...enjoy your new little family unit; nothing like it in the world...as I'm sure you've discovered. And now you can say.."IveTriedThat", once again!! Ha ha :D
Welcome to the land of Parenthood!
~Evon (aka LadybugLove) :)
Thank you Evon! He definitely stole our hearts the second he was born! Love the little guy :)
My pleasure Steve...Yeah they sure can do a great number on the ole ticker...that's for sure!! He's definitely a keeper!! Love the head of blonde hair (I'm partial to that, btw) ;)
If you think you're a gone-er now, wait till he says "Da-da" Lol :D
Hello Vincent Cole tell you Mom and Dad I said congratulations. I hope things go well for you Vincent over the next weeks and months training them to your likes and dislikes.
I know with new parents it can be a little harder to train them.
The only advice I would give you is that as you get older remember that Grandparents are easier to train then parents.
Already the wrapping you around the little finger has begun. I have much experience with that and for grandparents it is worse.
Congratulations and lots and lots of good wishes to the three of you!!!
As Loes says - enjoy every minute. I too remember holding my first born as if it was yesterday and feeling such love and responsibility as I had never felt before. (She is now 41 and has two children of her own, who again are growing up faster than we can believe.)
I know time is about to jump into fast-forward but we will cherish every second with the little dude.
Congratulations on the arrival of little Vinnie.... a whopping 9lb 5oz! My boy was 9lb 6oz and I couldn't push him out.. he was too big! So big congratulations to Amanda, obviously more strength than me! And the hair..going to need a haircut ! So precious ! My boy is now 15, 6 foot tall, huge feet which is as well as he's my inspiration for one of my websites, he's a tennis player and I live in Spain with him at a tennis academy. WA gives me the opportunity to work in a country where I cant speak the language and would otherwise not be able to feed my dream of personal wealth!
This is amazing, Steve!!! So glad for you and Amanda! I beleive Vincent wins as having the most hair on a baby...ever!!!
I'll be forever grateful to you, Steve, do directing me, ever so gently, to Wealthy Affiliate, through one of your reviews. It's funny, but just a few minutes ago, I thought of 2 guys I know who are working crazy hours just to get a paycheck. Wealthy Affiliate is more than just making money....so much more!
Well, at least now, when you have those sleepless nights, you won't have to worry about dragging your way to the office.
All the best!
How precious, so glad everything went well. Congrats with the little fellow. He's beautiful! Big hug for Amanda. (I know exactly what you went through) 13 will for always be your lucky number!
Enjoy every minute, you do not realize it now, but time does fly. My first born daughter is 36... and I remember as if it was yesterday when she was born
LOL! The hair is so cute!!! Congrats on getting through all that, I've certainly NOT tried that, courage issues extend to some of us gals too! Looks like the kid was aiming for father's day then and possibly has set a record for getting his bio up on WA :D
Thanks for sharing all the pics of your beautiful baby boy Steve. He is precious! Congratulations to you and Amanda. I know you really are going to enjoy being able to spend that time at home. It's rare for children to have one parent at home now, much less two, so he is a blessed little fellow.
I have 2 friends who gave birth to their first a few days before Vincent and he is already back at work. I can't even imagine having to live like that. I am very lucky and thankful every single day.

Aaaaw... welcome to the world, adorable Vincent Cole!! Amanda looks amaaaazing after 38 hours of labour! Phew!
Thanks again for introducing me to WA, Steve.
Hope Amanda is able to get some value from my breastfeeding site, Happy Human Pacifier - the free download should be especially helpful.
Congratulations to you both!
Thanks Lauren! I'll have to tell her to take a look!
