Thanks. Today is Franz Liszt's birthday 202 years ago. For what it's worth, tomorrow is Al Yankovitch's.

So... great musician, or great humorist? He'll be born at the stroke of midnight, and be both, like everyone else in your family. :)

Have you been to visit the little tyke yet? Vicariously jealous... newborns are such a unique kind of cuteness. So derpy and so easily impressed by everything. Now you get to tell all your jokes to someone who'll appreciate 'em again. ;)

We kinda spent ourselves mostly on the waiting and the sympathetic contractions, which I prefer to think of as apostrophes.
I offer a single impression, which I regret not having taken a picture of with my cell phone: that with the advent of smart phones, all dozen people in the delivery room experiencing the birth vicariously through their devices, emailing and posting pictures.
At one point someone looked up and said, "What happened to the baby?!" While everyone was concentrating on their phones, looking at the pictures they had taken, Adam had taken him to the nursery.
There will be time for fishing and camping and Mega Beast Death Matches. Starting right after we wake up.
