Liz and Simon are both doing great.

I will likely not be blogging for a while and will be slower in answering email than usual. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

  1. Congratulations to you and your family – you do very good work – he’s beautiful. All the best in the coming months and don’t forget to enjoy it while you can because they grow up so fast.

  2. How much fun! Thanks for sharing the video. I am always amazed at how beautiful women look after giving birth, and I have never seen a more beaming papa. Congratulations and the best of wishes.

  3. David and Liz, That’s wonderful news! Congratulations to you and your beautiful new child, Simon Gabriel.

    You both look so utterly overjoyed.

    I can’t imagine a better set of parents.

    Remember that when you’re contemplating whether it would really be so bad to give him a little whiskey so he’ll sleep.

  5. Lovely! As the proud parent of two now-grown sons, I welcome you to my world Sleep-wise, things should get better when Simon makes 10 lbs and can sleep for six+ hours at a time! Peace to all three of you!
