I would point out that I am somewhat sleep-deprived today, after two nights of agitation, texting, phone calls, and high emotion. But I got off easy and cannot possibly complain.

I’m somewhere far off in the peanut gallery of supporters.
You can probably guess: they had a baby. A real cutie, if I may be so bold to say. His name is Chase.
We are thrilled he’s here. Since he is many miles away, I won’t see him until around Christmas. Until then, pictures will have to do.
In a perfect universe, Skype would have been created on the 6th day before anybody got to go to bed.
