The future arrived
... a week ago, in the shape of Alexandra Daphne Scholz, my enchanting daughter.
She seems to have inherited my hairstyle.
Gundemarie Scholz (my wife) and she are both doing remarkably well, to the extent that they both keep surprising medical staff with their rapid progress.
For those of you that care about such things: She was 2.9Kg (6lb 6oz) at birth, and 49cm (1'7") tall ... or should that be "long", given that she's not doing so much standing up as yet? What she is doing is sleeping, breast feeding, and excreting ... rather a lot.
Between times, it's mostly gurgling cheerfully, looking around at the world, and attempting to study her own hands -- I find her completely fascinating.
That being the case, don't expect anything very sensible out of me for the foreseeable future (so no change there, eh? )
and because I cannot resist the urge, here are a few more snaps of her:
As you can see, at only one day old, it seems that she'd already managed to get hold of the Amulet of Yendor, and was having a well earned nap
