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.

    I like the name. Not weird at all – don’t see why your mom took issue with it. And who needs to be called something “for short”? His friends will give him a nickname sometime in life whether it is related to his name or not!

    Congrats – he is BIG! And it is nice to see big sister so happy.

    Sorry that the birth wasn’t the best experience, but yay for the baby boy!

    Congratulations! He’s a lovely boy — and he’s got a beauty of a big sister.

    I know a little Jasper and think it’s a *great* name.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery — sorry to hear it was a bit traumatic.

    Phoenix May 20, 2008 at 10:41 am

    He’s beautiful and I adore the name. Congrats to you all.

    Cynthia Samuels May 20, 2008 at 10:41 am

    She really looks happy to have him! And both look adorable. It sounds like a read adventure – worthy of the rest of this nine month undertaking. Can’t wait to hear the whole story in prose only you could generate!

    Vitual kisses back for the entire bad family.

    I have a request. In the next picture can we get some baby toes? My kingdom for some baby toes.

    By the way, I’m liking the name.

    Rest up, take your time and enjoy those days. We’ll wait. Patiently. Sorta.
