Congrats Joe and Michelle!

She looks like an absolute dote (Irish affectionate term meaning lovely, cute and sweet all mixed up together - no direct translation)

Enjoy being parents!

She's adorable!!!  And she's quiet at the moment!  A double bonus!   ;D

Enjoy the quiet while it lasts and congratulations, I'm so glad you're parents now.

Congrats on a beautiful baby. :)

My daughter was born on Oct. 05, a Libra.  It takes her a long time to make up her mind, but once it is, it's set in stone.

I remember when Robin was 2, she was trying to put on her own rubber boots and kept getting the wrong one on.  I tried to help after she screeched and threw it against the wall, but she yelled, "No!  Me do it!"

Ah, yes, memories.  She just turned 29. :)

Thanks for all the well wishes and congratulations everyone.  ;)

We are so thrilled.  The last few days have been great, tiring, but great.  Rebecca is a peaceful quiet baby right now that doesn't cry much -- only when she wants chow.  She loves to be held and cuddled. 

She suffers from what we affectionately call "The Jimmy Arms and Legs" -- that is when her arms and leags are kicking and squirming and it is totally obvious that she doesn't have control yet.  hahaha  Ihave to say that she is rapidly gaining control though.  Her eyes are already focusing on things close by and she can already lift her head and look around with pretty amazing control.

We've had a little bout of baby constipation but nothing out of the ordinary.

We went into downtown Cleveland so Michelle could run in the 5K "Race For The Cure" against breast cancer (Michelle's mother is a survivor)  It was pretty cold and windy but we bundled up and baby and I waited for her at the finish line (Well actually over near the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame because there was less wind).

Again, thanks for all the good wishes.

Joe and Michelle

PS -- I'm wondering about a mystery novel with a tiny infant as the sleuth . . . nah, probably already been done.
