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 love both your babies’ names!

    congratulations. You are a good, strong mama.

    can’t wait to read about his antics (not really looking forward to that birth story, though, have to admit that).

    with much warmth and delight,

    Finally!!! Can’t wait to hear the birth story.

    Jasper is a great name. And he’s a Jiant! His first nickname…Jasper the Jiant. (er, sorry)

    He’s cute, and judging from the size of him, he should be sleeping through the night by tomorrow.

    Best wishes.

    Stacey May 20, 2008 at 1:30 pm

    Congratulations!

    Christina May 20, 2008 at 1:33 pm

    Congrats! Jasper is a great name to fit a handsome little boy.

    Welcome to the world of two kids. It’s a fun, crazy, love-filled place.

    Kyla May 20, 2008 at 1:44 pm

    Congratulations, HBM. Finally, eh?

    Crunchy Carpets May 20, 2008 at 1:53 pm

    Fast delivery huh?
    I told you so!

    congrats …he looks fantastic!!!!

    Angela May 20, 2008 at 1:57 pm

    Congratulations to you and Wonderbaby! and Happy Birthday to Sprout! (They both have adorable names by the way)

    While I’m of course on pins and needles here to hear about how all this came about, I hope you’ll take time to rest up when you can. I think it took me three days to get my birth story out. That’s three days of just writing. He was probably over a week old by that time.

    He’s just beautiful!

    justmylife May 20, 2008 at 2:00 pm

    Congratulations! You have two very beautiful children. Love the name. Can’t wait to hear about the somewhat tramatic birth story. Get some much needed rest.

    Major Bedhead May 20, 2008 at 2:00 pm

    Oh, congratulations! He’s beautiful and his name is great. Wonderbaby looks as pleased as punch.

    Miss Merry Sunshine May 20, 2008 at 2:05 pm

    Heather May 20, 2008 at 5:47 pm

    Side of the road! Yikes! Well, I am totally digging on the name Jasper, and I’m so glad to see that everyone is okay and healthy and all that. Can’t wait to hear about the birth story!
