    Thank God she has her mother's good looks!
    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.
    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.

    No joke, huh? Congrats! At the expense of sounding horribly cliched - she really is one of the cutest looking newborns I've ever seen.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    cute kiddo!

    Well, you better hope that she is not a practical joke, because you got have major cajones to pull a prank like that. :-P
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    She's gorgeous, congratulations and hope everyone is doing well (no fooling!).
    Seriously, though, having a birthday on April Fool's opens you up to all kinds of pranks. May she have the sense of humor to enjoy her birthdays. As the progeny of a Cyburbian, I'm sure she will.

    :-}
    I don't dream. I plan.

    Ooooo... she's a sweetie! Congrats!

    Your April Fool's was much better than mine: I got to clean up our basement from a sewer back up.

    What more can I say beyond what has been already said.
    But I will repeat it any way -
    Congrats, glad everybody is doing well.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Wow, SGB, she is adorable.. and I strongly believe that all babies are not cute.

    Chloe is our second. Her big brother is 4 1/2 years old.

    Thanks to all for your happy vibes. If anyone has some spare sleep available, the Mrs. & I could use about another 24 hours or so. :-S

    What a wonderful name! I am sure that big brother is awfully proud of his little sister! Congrats and thanks for letting us know her name.

    Congratulations on the newest addition to the SGB family, I am sure you are very tired but very proud.

    My son was born April 2 a few years back and there were some really disappointed folks at work who had picked April 1 in the baby lottery.

    Your little girl will have some fun birthdays when she's old enough for practical jokes!
