Marisa is born!

Post by mariek » Tue Apr 19, 2005 7:54 am


Sorry I haven't been around as often lately, I've been very busy with my little girl who was born on St Patty's day. She was 7 lbs 1 oz, and 19 inches. She is such a cutie, and she keeps me busy with those round-the-clock feeding every 2-3 hrs. I love all the cute sounds and motions she makes, and am excited and sad when they evolve. It's amazing how much she has changed in just the last few weeks. I haven't had much time lately to play on the computer, but I did manage to post some pictures here: http://photos.yahoo.com/mariekahnsf. I've got a bunch of pics I want to upload, but it'll probably have to wait until the next Ice Age at the rate I'm doing things these days.

When I first tried to see the pictures I got "No such page blah ..." or stuff like that. Now I can see the pictures. It's a wonder you see a fragile little infant grow up into a dynamic little child.
Marisa's beautifu!l She is a girl, right? For there was a little confusion about the gender of some members of textkit that names and avatars gave rise to, while you were away. :P

Unfortunately no, I'm not much of a singer and am afraid the windows in the house will shatter if I attempt it. :lol: Thanks for fixing the link above. I'm still trying to master typing with one hand (while holding baby in the other). I gave up on the dvorak keyboard mapping and went back to qwerty.

Believe me, you will get used to it. Forget about capitals though :).

I love that one too. It's actually a series of 4 pictures with different expressions. DH made a collage out of them for his desk at work. I have the feeling there'll be more pictures of Marisa than of me there...

Yes, she's a girl. :) I must have missed the gender name confusion here on Textkit. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell when it's one of those unisex names like Jordan, Kelly, Sandy, etc.

I went to visit my doctor a few days ago where I bumped into a couple who is 7 months pregnant. They looked at my little girl and the man asked me whether it was a boy or girl. The woman pointed out that she was wearing pink and said she was a girl.

you're right, i should just stick to lowercase, it's so much easier. :) Marisa keeps us pretty busy right now. How can such a little thing tire out two adults?! I am so pooped! Have thought about having a second child, but don't know when I'll have the energy...

The way you wrote that makes it sound like that that is where you found out she was a girl. :)

Hi Mariek,

And congratulations once more for your beautiful daughter!
Mariek wrote:Have thought about having a second child, but don't know when I'll have the energy...
I can guarantee you, as father of a never stopping daughter of 2 years, that things will get a little more resting with time. My problem is if I don’t start on thinking on the second son soon, after being used to some nights of full sleep, will I have the courage to have the second :wink:
Mariek wrote:I have the feeling there'll be more pictures of Marisa than of me there...
Well there things will never get better, I and my wife only appear on photographs if, by chance, we are beside her or with our daughter in our arms and I mean photographs taken by any member of the family :wink:

Best wishes for you and your daughter.

Andrus.
