      Re: MAZEL TOV!
      Yay! And don’t forget Lila’s promise to be a mother’s helper. How many hours a week can we use her without breaking any child labor laws???

      Yes, and I’m just waiting for the time she explodes with poop all over my clothes, as you were so kind to warn me about.

      Right now the best thing you can do for yourself is sleep when you can, scale back your expectations of what you are “supposed” to accomplish, and take your time acclimating to this new phase of your life.

      I know, it really is miraculous. And somehow li’l Phoebe has so far managed not to inherit any of the funny-looking qualities of her dad

  24. moviethinker says:

    Congratulations! What a cute lil neice I’ve got now. I’ll have to start saving up so I can spoil her.

    • 4_eyez says:

      Re: Baby!
      ‘Twas great seeing you and Michael the other day. Phoebe loves her dog book, and her uncle, and is sorry she couldn’t make it to softball. Maybe next week?

    Yahoooooo!!! I just want to say that over & over. I’m so happy for all three of you, and I’m awed by Sari’s stamina. We can hardly wait to meet this girl! Even Simone was kind of choked up and awe-struck looking at the photos. Lots & lots of love to all of you. . . . and best wishes for some sleep.

    Birth Day
    Birth Day
    by Elise Paschen
    Armored in red, her voice commands
    every corner. Bells gong on squares,
    in steeples, answering the prayers.
    Bright tulips crown the boulevards.
    Pulled from the womb she imitates
    that mythic kick from some god’s head.
    She roars, and we are conquered.
    Her legs, set free, combat the air.
    Naked warrior: she is our own.
    Entire empires are overthrown.
    Dear Sari, Josh, and Fern (soon to be another name),
    Great prologue, can’t wait to get into the meat of the book.

    Congratulations to all three of you!

  35. smith_mag says:

    She is awesome (even if she blew her first deadline….)
    Congrats you three. Can we have a contest to name her? Give us some letters or parameters, we’ll let the community work it out — you’re worked hard enough (especially Mom).
    Here’s a rewind to Sari just a few week ago (scroll down to the bottom):
    Congrats — love every minute of your new adventure.

    • 4_eyez says:

      Re: She is awesome (even if she blew her first deadline….)
      Thanks, SMITH! Sorry about the name thing, but we worked too hard on compiling and narrowing our list to confuse things with outside suggestions.
      Anyway, I think we did pretty well with Phoebe Feuer Neufeld.

    • 4_eyez says:

      Awwww!!! Thanks, Ana.
      Sorry to hear about PSR. I hope it wasn’t some karma thing: Phoebe’s birth had to be balanced by Pulp Secret Report’s death…?

    Fanfuggintastic, the both, the thrice of you. Present her at a cliff’s edge to a coterie of Serengeti aminals. If the reference does not immediately spring to mind, as soon as she learns to use a DVD player, which should be by September, oh daddy, will you never forget it again.
    I look forward to making goofy faces at the munchkin at some future Rocketship party. Congrats.

    Sorry, I’m late, but congratulations to all of you.
    She *is* a big baby. That bodes well. As you know our boy was the same weight at birth and he is a total joy.

    • 4_eyez says:

      Thanks, Neecy Nee-Nee!
      The blessed event has definitely cut into my A.D. production time. Very soon, I must get back to it. After all, we all want to know what happens to you in your apt.!

    Thanks, Reid. “Casualnes and calm”—I think you hit it right on the head.

    Just read the final installment and it brought tears to my eyes that I didn’t think were there to shed anymore.
    Stubborn me is sitting in Algiers Point refusing to leave for Gustav unless they call a mandatory evac (I think it will hit west anyway).
    I HATED not being able to go home in 2005.
    Thank you for putting this together. I look forward to purchasing the graphic novel.
