Yes, gentle readers, I have been keeping a secret from you.
A very big secret.
Of course, if you have had the good fortune to see me in person some time in the last few months, the secret was readily apparent.
But now comes the big reveal:
On Tuesday, October 7th, I gave birth to a bouncing baby girl!
Eight pounds, eleven ounces, twenty-two inches long, and ten days early, if you can believe it. Fat cheeks, and a serene expression like a very small, red-headed Buddha. Yep, tons of red hair!
And now, for the purposes of this blog, she shall be known as Baby Girl.
All hail Baby Girl!
