Troy Andrew Barker

 This is Troy Andrew Barker's first look around at his brave new world, the first time light hit his retinas and he realized he can see. He was born to David and Lucy Barker at 4 AM on October 23rd, 2009 at Palomar Hospital in Escondido, CA. I am now a grandfather. Yikes!
 A hospital is very quiet at 4 AM, and Troy did not disturb the peace. He came into this world very quietly.
 Lucy had a difficult time with childbirth since she has a tiny, under 5 foot frame. Troy weighed in at 7 pounds 10 ounces, two ounces over average. As of right now, mother and baby are resting comfortably in the hospital and are likely to go home on Saturday morning.
My wife missed the excitement as she was on company travel. Me, I waited patiently in the wee hours of the morning in the birthing lobby, watching KPBS. Classical music was being aired - it was Gustavo Dudamel, at the far left of the screen, as the new conductor of the Los Angeles Symphony. Here's to hoping that Troy too is a classic.
