I am struggling to carry this with big, significant words, and I can’t; it feels larger than I can lift. So here it is: at 8:30 this morning, Chris and Darcy made the leap from expectant parents to actual, full-fledged parents, with the birth of their daughter.
Their new girl-child is reported to be in good health; the mother is well, though understandably fatigued. The correct number of fingers and toes are attached to the correct number of limbs in the correct places, as per the specifications.
Darcy is resting; Chris sounded good on the phone. Tara won the pool, and I expect to have pictures up soon.
Welcome to the world, Catherine. It may be a little colder than you’re used to, but you’ll find it’s also roomier.
Update: Alex provides us with a a handful of pictures. Huzzah!
