An Exultation

Our good friends Skye and Dan came to visit over Christmas and, as a gift, let us be the first to know that they were Great With Child. Not that they planned to do so, of course, but thanks to a fluke of timing we were the first to ridicule Skye for her conspicuous avoidance of alcohol; they had to tell us something. We repaid their trust by exposing their unborn daughter to typhoid fever, something they've been exceedingly gracious about ever since. That was eight and a half moths ago. This just in from Mamá:

Lark June was born Friday, August 3rd at 6:32pm. Our baby honey bee weighs 6lbs,13oz and is as sweet as can be.

So there you have it - ten fingers, ten toes, a number of healthy organs and, unless the picture we saw has been aggressively PhotoShopped, one of the cutest babies in the history of babies. (We'd share it with you, except we have a policy against posting pictures of other people's children without express written consent from their parents' attorneys. You just can't be too careful these days.)

축하해 , amigos!
