Oh, and hey, big ol' honkin' congrats to Blisterlips and griphus for doing this whole having an adorable baby thing. Hey there, Helio Edward, welcome to MetaFilter.

I already used the title joke on griphus' Instagram and I'm not apologizing

OMG congratulations to you both, cannot believe I missed this but my social media attendance has been spotty of late, partly because early May is the BEST time to be born: well done small Helio and exhausted parents. He is beautiful!

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

Current MeFi Baby Count: 36.
