Just wondering.

"whats this stuff in my hand and where is daddy"
"is up down"
"doggie?"
"can i eat this too late i already did"

awww, thanks for all the well-wishes. Maybe once I get some sleep I can come up with a good baby/coding joke. All I can come up with is: Speaking of doesn't scale she was 9 lbs, 2 oz? Anyway, thanks, we're all happy and healthy and couldn't ask for more.

She is gorgeous! (And for a change, I'm not saying that while secretly thinking she looks like a squished monkey, which is how most newborns appear to me. That's one beautiful-lookin' baby.)

Well done to you and her mum/mom. May Samantha's life be filled with love and laughter.

congratulations. perhaps in the future we can bribe her to relay all of our pony requests? They'd sound so much more appealing coming from your loving daughter.

Jessamyn:Hey, how did we end up with a cooking subsite?
Cortex: Yeah, I thought we nixed that one. (looks at pb)
Pb: (mumbles for a minute) Well, Samantha thought it would be a good idea. She likes cooking. I'll just never figure out how she got that real pony the other day...

Oh come on Fiona & Samantha don't have to work together.

They'll we drawn together by coincidence, then realize their lineages are tied together, & that they both hail from a heritage of stupendous badasses.

For the purposes of this story, Fiona gets a banhammer, & Samantha gets pb's sword (a symbol of a world-class hacker). And I'm not sure if they fight crime or organize communities, oh, why not, they do both.

Also: woot!

C'mon, Pronoiac, with words like lineage, a sword, a hammer, you know it's got to be more of a fantasy story you're setting up. Possibly written by Ellen Kushner. Definitely badasses, though.

Normal birth weight is between 6 lbs, 2 oz and 9 lbs, 2 oz. She is a bit Large for Gestational Age. Guess you'll have to put her on the treadmill. Not ;-) Look at the Baby, Not the Scale.

Your beautiful son, Eddie, now has a sweet baby sis, Phoebe and Luna have a new playmate. Celebration all around. :)
