My wife Melissa and I had our first baby on Tuesday, Nov 19 at 2:18 pm. It's a girl, Emma Grace Lokovic. She weighed in at 7lb 12 oz, and is 20in long. 24 hours later, mom and baby were given clean bills of health, and so we're all at home now.
Incredibly, after only one sleepless night in the hospital and one evening at home of semi-inconsolable crying, things have settled down nicely. Now that we all know one another, Emma is amazingly well-mannered. (She knows what she wants, and now we do too, and as long as we go along with it, everyone stays happy.)
I'm taking three weeks off from everything other than the baby (including work). I expect to be incognito for most of that time. Wish us luck!
