Special Package arrived today

At 1:24PM today, DW delivered Lorelai Maria.* She is 20 inches tall and weighs 8 pounds 6 ounces.* With any luck, I will attach a pic or two...

Dang, files are too big.* How do I resize JPEGs?

Congrats, brewer. This is daughter #2, right?

Guess I don't need to tell you that you're doomed to a life of estrogen Hell...

You can open an account (free) on photobucket.com, upload your pic there and post a link, allowing your new baby girl to appear in your message on the forum. Only takes a few minutes to set up.

Nice, nice, nice. Congrats on the little deduction.

If you have a Mac, open the file in iPhoto, and export it to a web-ready format.

If you have Windoze, ... well... enjoy the baby .

Son's are great, but when they marry the connection isn't the same. One of the special blessings of a daughter is that she is your's forever! Congratulations.

Re: Special Package arrived today

Congratulations on your new baby. Hope she and Mom are doing well.

Since you have 2 daughters, you can hand down clothing. That was always one of my goals, but my younger son was the same size as his older brother. So I had to buy double everything.

Are you taking some time off work to be with the family? Looking forward to the pictures.
