05 September 2012

It all started with an innocuous comment almost six years ago.

One thing led to another, and now I'm very pleased at announce there is a whole other person on the planet!

This is Henry, the first baby (I think) born to folks who met on MetaChat. More pics here. He was born via a dramatic emergency c-section on August 24th at 3.11 PM, 6 lbs 5 oz.

Thank you, MetaChat, from proud parents Specklet and TheDonF!
BOY HOWDY, IS THAT EVER AWESOME! CONGRATS! SO HAPPY FOR YOU TWO!!!!!! Welcome, Henry! So nice to meet you!

Congratulations to all three! And thank you thank you for the beautiful baby pictures. Henry is adorrrrrrable!

I had my part to play too. Thankfully Specklet endured the initial ordeal and, it appears, was happy to repeat it, hence the arrival of Henry.

He is an absolutely juicy little peach and I want to eat him up.

Not literally.

Unlike his grandpa.

Everyone is having babies. I guess I'm at that point in my life. Or else we're having another baby boom.

So what you're saying is, "Have you seen my sugar gliders?" is a pickup line that really delivers? (rim shot!)

Congrats you guys.

I find that sugar gliders lead mostly to unidentifiable bits of food on the floor and occasionally pee on my head - not babies. Maybe mine are defective.

Anyway... Henry is adorable! I'm so happy for the two of you! :D

Congrats y'all! And you already have a perfect nickname/term of endearment for the little guy: Sugar Glider.
posted by Atom Eyes 05 September | 21:40
He is utterly edible. What a great story. Hope you're mending and getting some sleep here and there, Specklet!
