Title: Baby Wizard has a baby!!
Post by: pdar on March 03, 2008, 10:34:52 PM
As some of you people may have heard (or seen, in a couple of cases) i've got a ridiculously adorable daughter now, as of 2/26/08.   In accordance with U.S. Const. art. LII, 27, cl. 2, i am now legally obligated to post some pictures of my little girl on the "Digital Webs (or) Intertubes".

So here she is, Caroline Sophia Darby:

What kind of concepts does it understand thus far? Can it swim or orate?

Congratulations, Paul. It's a wonderful thing to realize the endless capacity we have for love. It happens immediately when we have a child (in most cases).

Were you in the room at the time of the birth?

thanks for the well-wishes, guys.  i wish i could express my feelings from the last week using something other than tired cliches like "happiest i've ever been" and "my whole world has changed" and blah blah blah, but words fail me.

in fact though, i think dave put it quite well.  i've had to sit back occasionally and observe myself over the past few days, wondering just who the hell i think i am.  i honestly would never have thought that i would make a decent father.  but man, when i look at caroline, i can't imagine doing anything other than my best for this little girl, and it turns out that my best ain't half-bad. 

i'm tired as hell, and i think have a permanent odor of baby vomit hanging about me now, but my daughter is happy, so i'm thrilled beyond belief.

ok i gotta sign off now before i lose it completely.

and no dave, i wasn't IN the operating room (c-section) because i have a bit of a weak stomach, but i was in the room beforehand for the 10 hours of labor, and i was right outside the OR to see my little girl as soon as she arrived.


PS.  for the sake of clarification, The Family Pdar picture consists of: (left to right)

paul darby, elizabeth karr, caroline sophia darby


PPS. and yes, austin keller is the godfather.  parrain.  whatev.

PPPS.  also:  she absolutely loves my beard.  she very quickly (within hours of her birth) discovered that she could control me by using my beard hairs as reins, so now i'm pretty much stuck with it.  woe is me!

PPPPS.  and she loves when i play guitar for her.  it soothes her quite quickly and effectively, and makes all three of us terribly terribly happy.  i haven't started teaching her to play yet, but all in good time.
