We are very blessed to announce that our first child is born =)
He is still working on getting his first Salesforce certification *snickers*
Mommy went through a difficult labor but she is recovering well. Daddy is sleep deprived but lucky to have such a strong and loving wife. Still making time to serenade baby by the piano!
P.S. #1: any newborn/parenting tips you may have are appreciated!
P.S. #2: thank you everyone for the loving comments!! Wife and I (and baby!) feel the love!
…back to the baby!
David, which trailheads has the baby completed yet?
God Bless you!
Awww… cutest baby ever :-) May God bless always :-)
Congrats David! You will be a great dad and I wish you well. It was great meeting you out here in Utah.
Congrats David, I would recommend to start couponing because diapers, wipes and baby formula are expensive, lol. We stock up on every wipes and diaper sale :).
Congrats David for the new role :) (Daddy!!!!)
Having a new baby changes a wife and husband into a mommy and daddy. As you venture into parenthood together, you will become wiser and more mature, while finding a new profound love for the amazing baby. Congratulations on the birth of your baby Mr. David Lui…May God bless, guide and watch over you, your baby and your family!
Thank you Nitesh, beautiful words!

I was just waiting for a some big file to download tonight (11ish pm PST) and I thought of checking your site again; when I noticed that you had a baby. I went ahead and read some of the comments and noticed that something was missing…nobody has posted a comment wishing you your very FIRST Happy Father’s Day! I hope you enjoyed it with your wife and new addition.
Aww, thank you ArchiTech! I had a great Father’s day!!
Congratulations sir !!
Congrats, 10 years and one day younger than mine.
Hi David, You are an inspiration! Your baby is very cute! May God bless your family!
I am a mother of 2, so an advice to you, take care of your wife really well, these initial days/months of motherhood can be exciting & stressful at the same time..give her more time, we all can wait for you on your updates on SFDC :) ,
and thanks for your sfdc lessons..
Tc and enjoy your parent hood!
Thank you Shalini!! I’m officially my wife’s personal assistant now. =)
Best advice: when the baby naps or sleeps, you and your wife nap or sleep
Best tip I can give…when the baby sleeps, you and your wife sleep…
Congratulations David… God bless to your family…

Congrats David !!
Congratulations David! I’m very happy for you and your family since you have helped mine so much.
I’m a dad of a 6 year old. My advice to you is enjoy every single day and take no seconds for granted, they grow up really, really really fast.
Some more logical advice for you: Sleep while you can, don’t take parenting advice unless its asked for (people will try to push this on you), your instincts are usually correct, and lastly – introduce him/her to the original Star Wars trilogy first :-)
Enjoy being a Dad!
I think about your tip literally every time baby cries at 3AM / super messy diaper / etc =)
Thank you Bill!
LOL about the Star Wars comment
Congratulations David! Welcome to fatherhood. It’s a blast!!

Big Congratulations to both of you, David!!! gorgeous baby!
My tip, I don’t do googoogaaga talk with my babies, that way they’re reasonable from start. My twins’ teachers tell me they’re the most reasonable and peace makers in their class.
Great tip… I’m already guilty LOL!
Many congratulations david
Amazing! Congratulations, David!
