    Many congratulations!

    But start counting....With a wife and a new daughter, you now have only about 3 years left in which you can still get in and use the bathroom..

    Cheers Cross and many congrats.

    I have six girls and four boys. It is possible that I am well qualified to answer your question about boys and girls.
    But I will not say much. Every family is unique.

    I can tell you this for sure:
    A girl needs a father during her formative years (or else problems will develop).
    A boy needs a father during his formative years (or else problems will develop).

    This doesn't amount to a high standard of parenting but a lot of children even in "wealthy developed countries" don't experience this steady reliable environment.

    Thinking about one of your earlier posts... can't quote chapter and verse now but it seemed you were alluding to something 'in utero'...
    ...a good proportion of our children (say 90%) are keenly interested in music: we usually imagine it might be because of what they heard in the womb.

    Whenever my wife was well pregnant at a gig or rehearsal she could tell how much the baby liked the groove. Some liked funk, some liked rock, one liked violin sounds.

    These days I can see it more clearly with the baby grandchildren: at rehearsals they clearly want us to play and they look irate when we stop.

    Congrats Cross you and your lady have some great times to look forward to. I have two very musical, but very different daughters. The eldest (20) is a rock chick with a voice to match, the younger (17) sings soprano in the local church choir. It's not always a bed of roses, but it's family....you take the rough with the smooth. Being a dad has made me a better man....albeit poorer and grumpier.
