Finally... It's A Boy!

Joseph Paul Aylward
Born 4/2/04 2:42PM
8 lbs. 11oz.

It was quite a day here. Mom, dad, and baby are all doing fine. The very kind nurses at the hospital are taking good care of all of us.

The second time in to have a baby (we had twins the first time) sure is different than the first. First of all there was no deer in the headlights look. The routine was familiar and substantially more enjoyable. My swaddling technique is very rusty; I'll have to work on that...

Thanks for all the kind words and well wishes!

You know, it's people like you that make Loudoun County keep growing. I'm not sure we can afford this rampant growth if kids like Joe keep popping out willy-nilly. Quick, call Eugene Delgaudio and let's see how this effects our property tax rates!

All seriousness aside, congratulations!

I guess this means the director's coming back soon and all us inmates will get locked back in our cells...

Seriously, congrats to Mrs. Wiz, Big Wiz, and all the little Wizettes on the addition. Pictures 2 and 3 remind me of Steven Wright's bit about finding the diary he'd kept as a baby.

"Day 1: Still tired from the move.

Day 2: Everyone talks to me like I'm an IDIOT."

Enjoy the baby, Kevin; we'll try to keep things to a dull roar around here.

I only know you indirectly, but I accepted exvigilare's invite to offer congrats.

It never occured to me that "Fruit of the Loom" was a pun until I read the part of the Bible that says "Children are a blessing from the Lord, and the fruit of the womb a reward..."

Congratulations and all, but I hope you don't expect for us to grant you any slack on blog postings. We've seen new fathers and mothers try to pull that "Oh, I'm Too Busy Raising My Offspring" stunt before.

Be assured. We're all watching.

Lordy, that's one big boopie. Looks like he's ready to tear into a Bud and a bag of pork rinds.

I have been informed of this blessed event and on behalf of the entire board of Supervisors allow me to state officially that every new born child is a blessing from God Almighty and that fact together with the wonderful Mr. And Mrs. Wizbang there is a direct increase in grace for them and the entire county. Your child actually brings the school system an extra $16,000 a year from the state when you fill out the school census. So for the 6 years before he is required to be in school (public, private or homeschooled), the county has a net cash surplus from your child of $80,000.00 Thank you for helping out Loudoun County. I will, as always, attempt to stop them from wasting it on boondoggles and land schemes.

Be proud of yours sun.. And love him always:)
