Yes, tonight Josephine!

Congratulations to one and all.

(Sorry, I just had to do the first of a life time of Napoleon jokes.)

Babies are utterly divine and I'm very nostalgic and jealous of all the happy, poopy, teary, sleepless newness and wonderfulness you're now experiencing. Kiss her, smell her, cuddle her.... it does not get any better than this.

So very happy for you.

Oh...and pictures or she didn't happen. xx

Welcome, Josephine! Your mom is awesome--don't make her write too many askme's 'k? Or at least, make them be the good kind, like how to plan the best birthday party ever.

Hello, Josephine. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, Josephine—God damn it, you've got to be kind.

When was the first thread announcing a Metafilter baby? Also, does a Metafilter baby mean any baby born to a Mefite or do the parents have to meet on Metafilter and make a baby together?

Also, congrats Madamina and welcome little Josephine!

bondcliff: "When was the first thread announcing a Metafilter baby? "

The earliest I can find is jonson (2005), who originally posted the announcement in Projects. The baby tag on MetaTalk is the most consistently used- the earliest tagged is pb 2.0 (2007).

Announcing a baby in Projects is just about the cutest thing. (and whoa, that baby is now a third-grader.)

Welcome to the world, Josephine! I hope you like it, we have tacos and some pretty decent television, which you won't like for quite a few years, but it's okay because I'm sure your head smells amazing and who needs to worry about tacos and television when your head smells amazing? No one, that's who. Anyway, hi, glad you're here, please don't torment your mama too hard.

Lovely squishy other-people's-babies are the best things. It's funny how much I enjoy them, and how little I miss mine being that age, although he was truly adorable. I was just too tired to enjoy it.

Thanks, everybody. We came home last night with a biliblanket due to some jaundice, but hopefully she ill be off it tomorrow and we can walk from room to room with her without feeling like she has a glowing electric dinosaur tail.

Logistics are a real nasty thing. Nothing is how we planned. "Welcome to parenthood," says everyone.

I had a jaundice baby too and it was unexpectedly tough. Get as much help as you can. If I were close I would very much be helping you. And do not be reluctant to ask someone to help you get mental health care if you need it.

Hang in there. It gets so much easier. They get much less fragile and you get much more time to pee alone. :)

Congratulations! This bit will pass and you will find yourself looking at photos wondering how your enormous kid sprung from such a wee bundle.

I still largely do not pee alone, though.
