    They don't even make you get a license!

    They just let you leave with the baby!!!

    On Monday, November 5, 2005 Mr. Hab and I welcomed our daughter into the world. She was two weeks early and weighed in at a petite 7lbs1oz and 20.5 inches long. Labor was easy, only 11 minutes of pushing and I feel great (but don't tell anyone, I still want to stay out of work until January! ). Life doesn't get better than this.

    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.

    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    Parenthood really is the shiznit. Kinsley Reese is her name, eating, sleeping, and pooing is her game.

    Thanks for the congrats, I think we're going to keep her around. I heard once you take the little anklets off of them you can't return them anyway. She's pretty cool though, sleeps 3-4 hours at a time so I can't complain.

    She's beautiful! Wasn't that an "oh crap" moment getting into the car and leaving the hospital?! Everything seemed so surreal up to that point. We made it half way home (about ten minutes) and pulled over to make sure Josie was ok because she was so quiet.

    Congratulations!! She is very cute

    It is encouraging for those of us who are not yet parents to hear that easy labors do happen sometimes!

    in a mere 16 years you'll be beatin' the boys to keep 'em away from her! Congrats, she's a sweetie.

    When we brought our youngest home, the very first night, I woke up in the morning and thought, *Oh, I'm in for it, I didn't get up with the baby once all night*. Brought her downstairs and let Mrs. G sleep in. She comes down and apologizes for not getting up with the baby once all night. We look at each other and think "WE GOT A SLEEPER!!!" We had that thought knocked right out of us the very next night.

    *Kinsley* is a great name. Best wishes to all the Habs for a long, happy life together.

    When I was little, one of the old lady relatives gave me a book called "The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew". Chances for 4 more from the Habs??

    Big Congrats from here in central Texas!

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
