hello baby

What seas what shores what grey rocks and what islands
What water lapping the bow
And scent of pine and the woodthrush singing through the fog
What images return
O my daughter.

-- T.S. Eliot, "Marina" 1930

Yay! I am very much in favor of girls:)

Of course, I would also have "Yay"ed a boy, because when it comes down to it, I am very much in favor of babies.

Aww, that was sweet. Your daughter is beautiful. You, my friend, are doomed to a life of eye rolling and "oh daaaa-aaads."

Sounds pretty fucking awsome, doesn't it?

lesley, the truth is, and i have tried very hard to deny it to even myself ... she appears to be eating the placenta.

Another girl! Since I have a sister and two girls of my own, I'll tell you that the sister thing is pretty great.

Although, I hope you are still blogging in 15 years or so when they are bringing boys home for you to meet.

mng, I hope the fact that TEN people (now 11) have commented on your post here, and only ONE on the Newsweek site shows you where the loyalty lies! I, too, never removed you from my bookmarks and was thrilled last night when I clicked on your site and found out you were posting here again!

Congratulations on daughter #2... my girls are 7 years apart (with two brothers in-between) and even now are great friends - I hope yours will be too!

Awesome. I'm tired of all the blogs I read havin' boys for their second child. Two girls, that's the way.

Oh, that's wonderful news! Two girls will be so much fun. And from what I can see of her, she looks perfectly sweet. Even though she's eating the placenta. ;)

(BTW, our first was a boy who is roughly F's age, and our second little boy is due at the end of May. So again, lots of fun!)

Actually it looks like she's using the placenta as one of those pinhead office toys, where you can imprint the shape of your face, or me?

ANYWAY, congratulations! Girls rock.
