Best Project Ever

A baby girl. Born on Sunday. Yes, ahead of schedule by a few days! No name yet. People find this very disconcerting -- an unlabled person -- but we're waiting for the right name to appear stamped on her forehead.

Hooray for the new arrival. I'm not disconcerted, though probably you're wreaking havoc with administrative systems.

She shares her birthday with:

Tsar Nicholas II
Bertrand Russell
Walter Gropius
Frank Capra
John Paul II (Karol Wojtyla)
Margot Fonteyn
Chow Yun-Fat
Tina Fey
...and my oldest daughter.

Congratulations!! I'm grateful to Baby Girl that she came a couple days early.

And just in case a name appears on her forehead that seems somehow perfect, check here: That's the zeitgeist you're reading.

W00T, W00T!

Yeah, Cammy!!!! As you know, I'm a big fan of baby girls! Take good care of yourself and that beautiful baby and let us know when her name reveals itself to you.

Congratulations, Cammy! I've got two sons that I love doing "guy stuff" with all day long, but my little girl takes the cake. She's got me wrapped, and unfortunately, she knows it. My family's best to yours.

Congrats Cammy. On time certainly, but there's no way you'll keep a baby girl to budget...

Cammy Bean said...

Thank you all for the welcome!

Little C. -- yes, she does now have a name :) -- is doing well. She's very good at her current job: eating, sleeping, pooping and peeing.

Mom and the rest of the family -- we're doing fine, too. It's really not such a shock to the system as the first baby was. At this point, us grown-ups in the family are completely used to having our lives and time managed by other people.

What's another night of disrupted sleep? All in a day's work...

Kia Ora Cammy

All this and much is yet to come your way,
A rendering from the lithe romantic past,
That in a moment of true ecstasy
Should one seed found among ten million cast;

And dearer, though that course was crossed in pain
For sweeter picked is the forbidden fruit,
And richer, for that path was trod again,
The kindred blood to guide the sibling foot.

And so draws near the summer of your days
While watching childhood swell a wild expanse
Of rainbows blushed with the Sun's undying rays
Lavishing jollity in spectral dance:

Then your past childhood days with all their charm
Link with your children's dancing arm in arm.

Ka kite
from Middle-earth

Cammy, I come late to the party, but still offer my "Congratulations" to you and all of your loved ones! It sounds like you all are very happy!
