Young Neale

At 11:39am on Tuesday August 26, 2014, Stevie gave birth to a healthy baby boy in Elmer, NJ. His name is Neale Scotticus Partenheimer, and at birth he weighed 6 lbs. 11 oz. and was 20 inches long.

Watching Stevie give birth to our first child was one of the most exhilarating and humbling experiences of my life.  I cried moments after he appeared, and again about ten minutes later when someone put him in my arms and I got my first proper look at him.  My life will never again be the same, and that's ok.

Stevie is recovering slowly but surely.  Neale just came home last night and is adjusting to the world.  And me?  I continue to be humbled by fatherhood, and exhausted.  Life is amazing, and I'm just happy to be along for the ride.


  1. Congratulations to the three of you, this is awesome! Neale, welcome to this world; it might seem strange for you now and make you scream a lot, but it's not as bad as it looks. Scott, Stevie, seeing a baby grow up is the best thing that happened to my life and I'm sure it'll be the best thing in your life as well, enjoy every moment (yes, even the screaming).

    All the best to the young family, god bless you,

    1. Henrik, thank you very much for this kind comment.

  2. Congratulations! How exciting! Hope the three of you are doing great. Enjoy these years because they will seem to fly by (well not during the 3 am feeding)

  3. I don't read for a week or two and all of a sudden there's a brand new little person! All the best to you both :)

  4. Best news ever. Congratulations!
    Tom K.
