Pride and Joy


I promise not to turn this place into Oooh-Look-at-the-Baby Central -- mostly because, let's face it, that wouldn't quite gel with the overall misanthropic tone that you've probably come to expect from these proceedings. In fact, once Jayne's home from the hospital, the two of us will probably create some kind of separate site for Inara stuff. (Aren't we so 2000s?)

For now though, a couple more pictures from our little girl's first day wandering the world.

I kid you not, before I clicked on your link under my "favorites", I thought to myself, "Where is that baby? They ought to be having that baby pretty soon" - WaLa, baby photo! Congratulations! So happy for you.

Hey, you've earned a couple "look at the baby" posts, and besides that kid's adorable. Again, congratulations and I hope your wife is recovering well.

And to fulfill my quota of snarky comments for today, yesterday's post being right above the Robert Novak one can only mean one thing...your daughter is going to bring down Robert Novak. Not kill him, just shake his evil influence to the core and leave him retired.

I know these types of things...fate talks to me. Either fate, or a disassociative personality pretending to be fate, but really there's an equal amount of trust between the two.

I guess she gets her good looks from her mother... Congratulations.

BTW: Jennifer had her boy two weeks back (8lb 15oz!). Mother and Gigantaur are doing well.

Congratulations Chez, she's beautiful! ...and hungry since she's trying to NOM the blankie in the top picture (or is it her hand?).

dick_gozinia said...

Yeah seriously....get cynical and pissy again. Didn't you have that baby like 2 days ago? Lets make with the angry.

I mean....congratulations.

Darek said...

Great, now I have no choice but to buy your memoir, to make sure you can continue to spoil the ladies in your life.


Congrats Chez and Jayne.

Girl With Curious Hair said...

Oh my, congratulations. I am so happy for you. Welcome to the beginning of the very best part of your life. Enjoy every moment.

Oh, so happy for you! As you already know, daughters are the best gift one can ever receive! She's lovely. Joss Whedon should know about this.

Jen said...

what a cutie. congrats to both of you. good luck with sleeping! enjoy the moments even when the sleep deprivation has you going insane - they grow so fast, she'll be a kid before you know it!

Congrats Chez and Jayne! She's adorable :) - Irene

tamara said...

Wow. Looking at these makes me wonder "Was mine ever that small?"

She's so precious...

You'll hear this a million times from other parents, but take it to heart: treasure these moments, Chez, for they are so fleeting...

denesteak said...

omg! CONGRATULATIONS- oh she's so tiny!

lammergeier13 said...

Chez, you are so lucky! She (and Jayne) are just gorgeous. She does, however, seem to have a look on her face as though she's not quite sure about all this.

Sean said...

Seconded on both counts to you and Jayne.

Vermillion said...

It is nice to see the gooey center of the crusty and blackened confection that is Chez.

Congrats to you and Jayne. Truly a beautiful child you have there.

Harris said...

Congratulations. I hope you stocked up all the sex and sleep you're going to need for at least six months because you're not going to be getting much, or any, of either.

I'll tell you the same thing I thought as I looked at my newborn daughter: Someday, 20 years from now, some guy is going to be lying to you in an effort to put his fingers in your butt.

I'm not a good father.

Leigh said...

omg. so cute my womb hurts! congrats again.

Hello baby, Inara Grace. Welcome to the world. You'll like it here. There'll be lots for you to do. Sometimes this place is messy, but just looking at you makes me want to do all I can to make it a little bit better.

Sheriff Bart said...

Hey. Good work, you two. I dropped some congrats on your respective MyShitbucket pages, but I was a little rushed. So, lemme raise my glass in a toast to Inara Grace. May she drive you both nuts being too smart for her own good as a child. May the gray hairs sprout on your head as she begins dating as a teenager. May she grow up to be a strong and intelligent and beautiful woman. May all three of you love every minute of it.
Cheers.

Now, if you really feel like it, go ahead and take a couple days off from being angry at the world. It's OK. We'll wait.

Maria said...

Aaaawwww, congratulations!

She's beautiful, and what a lovely name, too!

Janean said...

She's beautiful. Congratulations!

You sure make some good babies there, my friend...first Maddie, now Inara.

And to some of the people who posted comments: yes, Inara is just as exquisite as her mama, but Chez is no slouch either. If you were to see Maddie (her picture was just on the site recently), you'd see his female clone - with beauty, brains, and a point of view truly original - clever and compassionate.

But I'm bias...he's one of my best friends. And Jayne is an extraordinary woman, who is actually MUCH more than just her great looks.

So I expect extraordinary things from both Maddie and Inara - and fully expect that someday they will join super powers and fight stupidity and bad manners with flair and wit.

Bunche said...

Excellent! Congratulations to the both of you, and tell Jayne she looks hot even after doing the mommy thing.
