babies, babies everywhere

So it's spring/summertime, when a young woman's fancy turns to thoughts of "Holy crap -- everyone I know is having a baby!"

Well, not yet I. (Relax, folks -- more on this below.) However, two friends have just added to their families, and two more are in the process of doing so. Hence, on this Father's Day, I thought I'd give a little shout-out.

Please welcome...

Maggie Halter (little sis to Nina), born May 29, 2008.

Congratulations, Des and Nick!


Anne Frances McHale (little sis to Benjy), born June 13, 2008.

Congratulations, Jeanne and Matt!

And keep an eye out for...

The Yang Triplets (!!!), due sometime this fall, along with their cousin, Fetus Farnham. Yay, Christie and Ted and Becky and Chris!

Yeah, it's a little crazy. The Maltese side of the family is going from zero grandkids to four all at once -- exciting!

So plenty to practice on for the next year or so, at which point, the time will be ripe (pun intended) for yet another grandkid -- this one for both Maltese and Shapiro sides. I mean, given how fast the fish died, we just want to make sure we can keep a dog alive for a whole year before we take on a human being. We're working our way up...but don't fear; the blips are on our radar, in pink and blue.

Love and happy Father's Day to all!
