He will do things like put his wife’s breast-feeding tank top on his head like a hat. Teach me words that I’ll later need to look up in urban dictionary and cringe at the meanings. “That’s what she said” is his favorite joke. No, he’s not the Dos Equis man. But he is now a father, which is a bit scary.
I’ve known Antonio since junior high and he’s met his match in his wife Heather, who will preemptively make his favorite joke for him and then roll her eyes. Thank goodness she’s around to balance him out as they bring new life into this world.
Heather and Antonio welcomed the adorable Alipio in July and he really is quite perfect. Alipio, you say? The name comes from Antonio’s grandfather. Which means Antonio will let this kid get away with everything because, as he says, how can you yell at someone with the same name as your grandfather?
I had the privilege of dropping by to see Alipio when he was still just days old. I was truly in awe at how small he was – I don’t think I’ve even seen a baby quite that newborn before.
Heather and Antonio – congrats again! It’s still surreal to know that you two are parents. I can’t wait to see how Alipio has grown when we see you again at the end of the month.

Hey. Whatcha lookin’ at, kid?
