    Yay, pictures!

    Less than a week old, and she’s already: got an enviable collection of high-tech toys, stubbed her toe, perfected the evil eye.

    Yes, she’ll fit right in.

    Dude, it’s like Spring and stuff…I know you’re in the Frozen Wastes and all, but still…winter wear inside?

    All kidding aside, if you’re posting pictures, normalcy is is either restored or close, and this is a good thing.

    Shovel, shotgun, and a threatening look…you have about 14 years to acquire these.

    Awwwww! Look at all that hair!! Ernie’s hair was like that – thick and dark and sticky-uppy and so very pettable.

    Obviously, I very much approve of Miss Maya’s middle name.

    Yay, baby. She’s adorable.

    (And I did not expect to get nostalgic over wrinkled soon-to-peel skin on baby feet, of all things. Sheesh.)
