Gwen

I haven't drawn anything in the last few days, and it's going to be a few more days before I draw again. Last Thursday night we went to the hospital and traded in my wife's mobility for a cute, little girl we named Gwen. Actually my wife and many of the nurses would probably object to my use of the word "little" as she weighed 9 pounds 12 ounces. After only a few days of life, her hobbies are limited to eating, sleeping, pooping, staring at the Christmas tree, and hosting 4AM scream-a-thons. We love her, but we're tired. I'll draw again soon, but until then, here's our new daugther. So far she looks like me but still manages to be cute. It's a Christmas miracle!

A big congrats to you and your wife (mostly your wife - face it, she did all the work!) Wow, 9lbs 12 oz? That's pretty much a giant. But she couldn't be more gorgeous! Congrats!

Congratulations. Every one at work is having babies. It's got to be something in the water, I know it.

Jeremiah said...

Congratulations! Enjoy those 4AM scream-a-thons. They typically don't last forever. That is, unless she develops night terrors. If she does, good luck with that.

The picture turned our beautiful. It probably helps that she's a beautiful baby. We want to come by sometime soon.

Hooray for Gwen! She made it safe and sound. She's very cute. I'm a firm believer in the idea that for every ounce of cute there's a pound of trouble, so I guess this means you're in for it. I'm so happy for you guys. Good luck and God bless you, every one.

Congratulations!
Longtime lurker. I really enjoy your art.

We had a 9lb 14oz girl. It really is a miracle.

I can see a bit of Lindy in her! She wieghs as much at birth as my 8week old Kael, but he was about a month early. Tell Lindy good job!!!

Penelope Crackers said...

Hooray and Congratulations! Welcome to the joys and insanity of parenthood. She looks just like you. I never realized how much you looked like a beautiful little girl. hahaha jk of course. Poor Lindy though. It's hard going through all that work and having your kids not look a stitch like you- believe me I know. :) Kisses from all us.
