Jasper!

A joyous welcome to Jasper Daniel Blachly-Nelson, born to LibraryThing's Librarian Abby (ablachly) and her wife Sara, yesterday at 8:56 PM—9 pounds 3 ounces, 21.5 inches long, 166 books!


Update: More photos on Flickr!

Update 2: Lisa and I visited Sara, Abby and Jasper at the hospital today. Everyone is doing great, and Jasper—cuter even than his picture—is clearly going to grow a weed.

I'll post here too! Congratulations you guys! Babies are the sweetest things ever--and then they grow up and mutate and become these creatures...

whew. Sorry about that. We won't go there. I was just having my own little vietnam flashback.

Many, many joyous days to you all.

I'm Flattered! Should I be? I think I should. I wish my parents would've named me the name I chose, nay the Name I grew into. Instead they named me Dean, (after the Doctor that birthed me). I Feel more like a Jasper now. All seriousness aside, that's a beautifull child. If you're lacking a GodFather on the West Coast, I'm available.

Kind Regards,
Jasper.
