A literal baby shower! Congrats coriolisdave on Daughter #2! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ

Gabrielle Amelia Miller, born 1.30pm Brisbane time, weighing 3.856kg (8lb 8) and 55cm.

Father already claiming she's a chilled out one... but let's wait until she's at least a day on the outside perhaps?

Yay Gabrielle! Welcome back to the Midnight Mefite club, parental units :)

Wheee!!! So glad she's here. I demand cuddles!!

Well, get yer skinny ass up here and you can have all the cuddles you want!

Another Mefite-lette! It's like babby-arama at the moment! I'm guessing there weren't many Metafilter posts about 9 months and 2 weeks ago...

And she has such a lovely name.

Well done, congratulations, and insert my standard but genuine and heartfelt "may her life be filled with love and laughter" here.

That exclamation point followed by the emoticon made me read the announcement as "Daughter #21." And I thought "perhaps that is going a bit too far."

However, now that proper parsing has been restored, congratulations.

jonathanstrange, out of context that had me plotting an online baby shower for YOU!

Also - chilled out? I saw him describe her as "scheming" and "evil".
Watch your back coriolisdave, we all know it's the quiet ones you need to watch out for.

Calling all babies.

Okay, so, it's getting that we need a name for this growing Mefite cohort... The Julian Mob? Summer of '12 Baby Gang?

Congratulations, coriolisdave - and welcome Gabrielle!

I approve of this baby spamming of metatalk.

And yeah, watch out, it's the second one who kicks your ass.

More Babies For The Baby God!!!*

*Is it the god of babies, or a god that is a baby? I can't say, but I do know it's your turn to change it.

When all these kids turn five, they'll have to go out and hunt for food for the rest of the community. The half-height rackmount enclosure said so in a vision.

I expected more gore for a literal baby shower. I won't say I'm disapointed, but . . .

Congratulations! I should be joining this club in the next week.

Yay! Gorgeous Gabrielle.

I approve of all this babby-birthing going on. It goes without saying that Metafilter babbies are the very best kind of babbies.

It's going to take a lot more of them to counteract all the dumbass in the world, though. Double-down up the canoodling, everyone!

We are so kicking ass in the Metafilter vs Reddit July Pub Baby Crawl Challenge!

Double-down ON the canoodling, that is. Me types goodly.

Dang, I'm losing track.

The Baby Cabal grows agai... doesn't exist!

With all these babies lately, I was tempted to go back through the archives to see if I'd forgotten that the site went down nine months ago.

Oh no, a baby shower! Somebody run and get the nets! We have to save as many as we can!

I'd like to put it out there that September 4th is an excellent day for a birthday. Carry on.

Hmmm... I don't think that's up to me, but I'll pass on your suggestion.
