The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

29 March 2003


Please welcome Laney Paige Marie Hill, about six pounds, about nineteen inches, and about two and a half weeks early, to the Big Wide Occasionally-Wonderful World.

Photographs when I can get them. For now, Russ and Alicia are getting some sleep, and it's a good thing, because they won't be getting much sleep for the next year or so.

Please amend all previous utterances of "But I'm too young to have a grandchild" to read "But I'm too young to have two grandchildren."

Thank you.

WOOHOO! Congrats, Charles, to you & the Proud Mama & Papa! Don't forget - your role is to SPOIL, not CHANGE DIAPERS. 'Nuff said.

Congratulations to the resting parents and to you, Mr. Hill. And welcome, Laney.

Do you get babysitting duties?

One benefit of being CGHill's grandchild - all of your baby videos will have MUCH better music than everyone elses.

(Did Johnny Rivers do any lullabies?)

Congrats Grandpa. I assume, with one grandchild already, you have amnesia regarding raising your own children and will constantly wonder why your kids are being so hard on your grandbaby.

I have children?

Damn. Must have forgotten. :)
