Congratulations! If her first reaction to 2017 based on that picture is any indication, she is going to delight the world with wry commentary in a few short years. Can't wait for her to get a MeFi account.

OMG cute! And savour every moment because time flies so fast.

Lil Ubu just turned 7 and we are now playing Arkham Horror. Rated by the community as a 14+ game? Meh, not this statistically anomalous community.

Hello, baby. 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, baby—God damn it, you've got to be kind.

Current MeFi Baby Count: 34.

And in MeFi's most delicious tradition, allow me to be the FIRST here to repeat to you those immortal words of K. Vonnegut which we all hold so dear:

"To whom it may concern (although possibly not immediately),

I refer to your recently-established existence.

Please be advised that the average annual temperature is approximately 287.15 Kelvin. The shape of the planet approximates to an oblate spheroid whose density is 5.51 g/cm³. The average lifespan of a human entity is 2,491,344,000 seconds. Various laws of nature have been proposed and remain under review; by way of example, Boyle's law provides that the product of pressure and volume, God damn it, is constant for an ideal gas."

Congratulations! She looks very full of personality for a newborn, befitting the child of two Mefites, and I look forward to future-her creating an account.

Ok, ignoring the part where we've found out that the kid is already typing and posting to MetaFilter (probably higher quality comments than me already) - but Holy shit!??! The kid is already walking on Day 3?!?!?


Also... for the next year kid, no - you shouldn't eat that. No rug fuzzies, wash the boo before you put it in your mouth, if Daddy doesn't want to change your diaper DTMFA.... IANAL but... yeah...welcome to standard MeFi disclaimers!

Thanks everyone (and SWD, for posting this!). I will spare you the details of the birth and first few days, save for one thing:

During labour, when the midwife said "bear down," it took every ounce of my self control not to respond with "right frog."
