Unexplained Absence

Pardon the week-long delay in posting to this page. My wife and I are now proud parents of a baby girl. It happened last week and has occupied all my time, energy, and thoughts. This blog just had to wait. And it will wait for at least another week, or more likely two, as we adjust to everything.

In the meantime, please check out the quality blogs and other web pages linked on the sidebar. And shhhhh, the baby's sleeping!

  11. Congratulations on a new love of our life! On the “it’s good to be green” comment, does that mean you are going with cloth diapers?

  13. Hey, congrats. Hopefully you will impart upon her the most valuable life lesson of all, "don't become an architect, become a blogger!"

  14. She's beautiful -- congratulations to you and your wife! And for pete's sake, don't worry about taking a blog hiatus. Sleep when the baby is sleeping, support one another, and ease into this new adventure!

  15. Congratulations John,
    My son was born 6 months ago and he's the best thing I ever did. By a country mile. I'm only just starting to sleep again, but wow! Life has a whole new dimension. Such a cliche but so true. I wish you and yours all the best.

  24. fatherhood - that should keep you occupied for a few years to come. Congratulations. What is the appropriate gift to give to the new born daughter of an architect, a parallel bar? Alvin clutch pencils? A trust fund?

    again enjoy - I am envious

  30. I was beginning to worry that you've been abducted by forces much more malevolent than a cute new-born baby girl. Congratulations!

  34. Congratulations from Montreal to you and Karen. The baby looks so cute. As Victor's said little girls are the best. And i know what i'm talking about!

  35. Thanks to everybody for congrats and well wishes. Even with the lack of sleep, the diaper changes and the crying, I have to admit parenthood is quite fun.

    To answer a couple questions:
    Yes, we're going to use cloth diapers, as soon as she fits the ones we have. We're using 7th Gen newborn diapers in the meantime. And does she ever fly through those!

    And given that both my wife and I are architects, we're hoping our daughter is anything but! ;)

  44. Hi,

    I usually don't visit this blog, but I saw this and of course that had to leave a message.
    I wish her to be happy and especially healthy and kind; the same to the rest of the family.

    Kind regards,

    José
