Habemus Infantem

Healthy, beautiful baby girl, born July 16. 20 1/2" long; 9 lb. 4 oz. (I'm only 5'2", if that gives a clue how uncomfortable those last few weeks were).

From her namesake:

"I would like the angels of Heaven to be among us. I would like an abundance of peace. I would like full vessels of charity. I would like rich treasures of mercy. I would like cheerfulness to preside over all. I would like Jesus to be present. I would like the three Marys of illustrious renown to be with us. I would like the friends of Heaven to be gathered around us from all parts. I would like myself to be a rent payer to the Lord; that I should suffer distress, that he would bestow a good blessing upon me. I would like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings. I would like to be watching Heaven's family drinking it through all eternity."

Congrats.

Now you should perform the experiment that Kottke did, to see if you can reproduce his results.

Congratulations! I've been watching anxiously to see when you would resurface. Hope that baby is healthy and happy and being a bit gentler on you these days. :)
