Happy belated birthday, part II

…to Jacob Kekoa Tsark, who apparently took his sweet time getting here on Friday, April 8th. I'll just quote these parts of Kara's email: "20 hours of active labor" and "emergency c-section."Yep, she's definitely got something to hold over this one during his teenage years.

I posted a similar entry, 'Happy belated birthday…,' in January 2003 announcing the birth of Kara and Matt's first son, Danny. A couple of years later, I can follow up what I said there: yep, Kara's a great mom. There's something inherently satisfying and cheering in knowing that the people who should be having kids are having kids. (Time to place yet another round of bets on whether or not the child of two engineers is destined to become an engineer. Check back in about eighteen years.) :D

Congratulations, Kara & Matt. May your second child bring you as much joy as your first.

Congrats to you two! :)

ahhh... back in the day ;) my mom had 78 hours of labour... and no c-section.. I was a salad-tongs baby! (as in foreceps LOL) I just wish people who shouldn't be having children weren't having children... like, for example, children... >.< Somedays I still want to get a tubal.. but am not sure if I'm ready to give up my child-bearing ability at this point.... its funny. I was so convinced before... :D Glad your healing well!
