Congrats, Robie. Pictures please. Let the next 18 years begin... :)

Oh, congrats, Rob! That's just swell.

And I must be pyschic or something because last night (or really early this morning, I don't remember) I was thinking that Keira was a beautiful girl name.

tj, welling up with baby fever again

My deepest and sincere blessings to you and yours. You're a good man, Rob. I wish you and your family joy.




ps...and I know the K name is in honor of me. Thank you. (I had to poke you somehow...it wouldn't be right if I didn't.)

Hold it, buster. Rob and I had something special and the K name definitely is in honor of my middle initial.

Danger Jane

I don't know. But I think of her nightly.

I buy all the vogues she's on just so when I get hormonal I can have something to cry over--major jealousy.

maybe dawno can knit little Kiera some sparkle ears, so when Rob can't be here because he's too busy, he can think of us.

How ironic, High Anxiety is on television right now.
Kiera's mom wouldn't happen to be named Carrie, would she?

Congrats, Rob. Enjoy dressing up your little princess.

Congratulations on your newest bundle of joy. Babies are so cute - except when they're driving you crazy ;), and then I try to remind myself that babies are generally happiest when their tummy is full and their diaper is not!

There were two nurses with Hello Kitty scrubs...



Thanks for all the kind thoughts, everyone! Will post pictures when possible.

Wait a minute, the kid's been born... already?!?! Feels like that thread announcing the pregnancy was just a month or two ago.

A daughter. They are magical. Expensive. Wonderful.
I thought I only wanted boys--until I had my first daughter.
I would be lost without my daughters. They complete me. Wait...that's been used already, huh?

Uber congrats!!!

Congratulations on your little girl.

Remember when you have a boy you only have to worry about one boy. When you have a girl you have to worry about all the boys. :)

no, when you have a boy you have to worry about all the other boys and girls!

I love the Baby Name Wizard (http://www.babynamewizard.com/namevoyager/lnv0105.html). It shows you the popularity rank of names. Now, type in Keira and you'll see something interesting!

maestrowork
08-17-2007, 06:57 PM
Interesting site... wow, my name was very popular in the 30s.

aruna
08-17-2007, 07:00 PM
I find "Emma" interesting. IN the early 70's, my friends had a daughter they named Emma. I thought it was terrible - SO old fashioned. I predicted she would be teased as an old spinster aunt or something. Now, just look at the stats for Emma - the 70's was the very start of the Emma-trend! A few years ago, Emma was number 1. Someone told me that was after Rachel of Friends named her baby Emma!

But funny how my friends somehow picked up on that trend - in Guyana.

My own name went out decades ago.

Lyra Jean
08-17-2007, 07:11 PM
I typed in my name and it didn't show up at all.

Kiera is a little more popular than Keira.

Congratulations to you and your wife and your precious bundle of joy.

Now go change the diaper, already.

Once they reach about three months, you can give 'em a little shake just before handing the grandchild off to the inlaws that guarantees voluminous spit up. I can PM you the technique if you like.

Sarita
08-19-2007, 07:09 AM
How did I miss this!?!?! I was even watching for it.

YAY! Congrats to you and your wife. She's beautiful. Enjoy all those cuddly baby moments. Pretty soon she'll be a toddler... *sigh*

Congratulations, Rob. Give her a little smooch for me :)
