Hello World: Stella

11 Feb 2008

This morning my sister gave birth to a wonderful and super tiny young girl named Stella. I’m going to be the godfather, and I think I’m already totally in love :) Welcome to the world, Stella! I went to the hospital during lunch and snapped these little images to share them with the world:




Stats: 48 cm large, 3 kilos heavy and the cutest face in the universe!

(For John: 105.82 ounces and 18.89 inches)

    Well done!!!!

    Were you up all night?

    I have four godchildren and have been extremely happy that digital photography was invented. Otherwise, I would have spent more on film and paper than I have saving for their college educations.



    P. S. Please translate 3 kilos into British ounces…which even the British don’t use any more. That would, therfore, be “American measures,” which, come to think of it, sounds very sinister, like something the CIA would do: “take American measures…”

    In answer to your question: You’ll have to let everyone know you’re going to endow an educational scholarship for the godchildren. This is a true story: my wife once exclaimed to me angrily, “Why do all OUR friends ask you to be godfather but I’m not asked to be the godmother?! Don’t they understand how much money this is costing you to set up all these trust funds??? I WOULD NEVER do that for someone else’s children!” Opting to preserve our marriage, I simply smiled.

    Babies are ugly, I think all babies should be furry up until the age of 3. And red eyes, definitely red eyes.

    CONGRATZ DUDE! It’s a FREAKING BABY, now you can look forward to the, “Uncle Coolz0r can I have a glass of orange juice?” “can I have a puppy?” “Uncle Coolz0r…” “Uncle Coolz0r…” “UNCLE COOLZ0R!!”

    Protect the world people, use a condom. Spread the love!
