  My cousins -- the brilliant, beautiful, gracious Elizabeth and her nearly as brilliant, artistic, good-natured, loving husband Christopher -- introduce their most recent collaborative effort, Aria Elizabeth Rose, born approximately 5 PM today, 18 July 2012.  Weighing in at 7 lb 2 oz, reaching 21", she's a contendah!


That's Aria, as in Ahh-Ree-Ahh, not as in Air-Ree-Uh as some plebeians from Noo Joisey pronounce it.  Pronounced it, that is, until the mild-mannered English-teacher paternal grandfather hung the dialect-offender by his ankles from the hospital room's fourth-floor window.  Fortunately for all involved, the resolute paternal grandmother realized the draft might be uncomfortable for the mother and child and brained the grandfather with a bed-pan, which the the musically inclined babe recognized as a clear F-sharp peal.

Gabriel & Aurora greet Aria



Note the little teddy bear slippers. ---->

  And that's a wrap...

That's one more reason to admire the grandmother. Her wisdom and decisive action made me cheer. Any chance we can get her to hit him with a bedpan every day, just to keep him in line?

I'm delighted that all are doing well and now have major sleep deprivation to look forward to.

My love to Chris and Elizabeth, please, JJ.

Pamela, I shall pass on your delight to the happy couple.

On Friday, I was able to hold Aria before they all left the hospital for home.
