Mr. Tweedy's baby

Not exactly Drabble-ish news, but:

My daughter Clara Violet Hugo was born tonight at 11:15. She weighs 6 and a half pounds and stands 21 inches tall. (Well, she would if she could stand.) She joins Norah Iris to make two little Hugo girls.

I guess birth itself is pretty weird. This whole biology thing is pretty weird. It's good, though. Really good.

Congrats! Very pretty names!

What a great coincidence with this week's story.

Uh oh. Haven't heard the story yet, but now I'm nervous...

Hey, I just read the stories. :-)

Any cute pics of Clara that we could melt over yet? Feel free to share (unless you'd rather not have them one click away from pics of the Octo-child or Tree-man, which is understandable)

The octo-child and the tree man are fine people. No shame in being a click away from them!

A beautiful child, Mr. Tweety. Congratulations!

Two girls, huh. I hope you like pink.

I like to see little girls wearing pink. For myself, not so much.

very cute. I especially like the first pic. that's the expression I picture you having in your more fiesty Escapepod forum posts.

yeah i really like the first one too. it's a cynical expression you'd never expect a baby to make. its like she was born all crusty and immediately in disbelief at how ridiculous the world is.

I'd suggest a caption contest for that first picture if we could keep it baby-friendly...because I'd love to imagine captions for that photo.

i thought "click here to see full size image" was a pretty solid caption.

Her older sister, Norah, with born with similar misgiving about the nature and state of the universe.

This thing attacked me in my house today! Does anyone know what this is?!

Hmmm, ask Norm - I believe he is the expert on giant man-eating cephalopods. In that third pic your Clara bears an uncanny resemblance to Her Majesty the Queen (but less wrinkly).
