Birth Day

May 19, 2008

Miss Emilia would like to introduce you all to her baby brother, Mister Jasper, who arrived last night at 9:16pm.

After very narrowly escaping being born at the side of the road.

Their bad mother, who is happy but nonetheless shell-shocked from what was – no exaggeration – a somewhat traumatic birth experience, needs to recover for a day or two before sharing that story. In the meantime, accept this photo and a weakly blown virtual kiss as both birth announcement and thank-you (for your amazing support during this crazy pregnancy) card.

    Happy, happy, HAPPY birthday to your darling boy, and congrats to sweet big sister E. Looking forward out lots of hugs and kisses in less than two months! Oh, and clinking glasses with you.

    Whew! I swear to Goddess, I felt all big and punchy with you, dollin. However, all that heave and ho with your belly was worth all the gold in the world when I see that fine little guy in his sister’s arms.

    As always, you did well and did it with style, HBM. I salute you and your baby boy feminist. Holla!

    Love from your fan,
    GraceD

    Mazel Tov! You will be responding to each of these congratulatory comments, won’t you? And, of course, sending out the obligatory Birth Cards. Doesn’t a Jasper deserve the blue ribbon ones from Tiffany’s?????
