Oh yes. I'm not sure why this seems to be the most important fact about babies but he weighed 8 pounds and 6 ounces. Maybe birthweight is the most important fact about a newborn because unless you went to Medical School there isn't a lot more to say yet. Blue eyes, male...that's about it. After all, he hasn't loined a Little League team or chosen a career path yet.
But I thought I'd post a few pictures, so I quietly unlocked the door and tried to tiptoe into the workroom.
Bagman is working on bumper stickers for the upcoming political elections. The bumper stickers say: "Don't vote. It only encourages them." Butler is working complicated algoriothms for beating the stock market based on taking the square root of the price/earnings ratio, multiplying it by the number of advertisements in the Wall Street Journal and then applying a factor calculated by the number of women over 75 who have lost their life savings to Goldman Sacks.
The both look up at me in absolute shock!
BAGMAN: "What in the name of political horsepoop are you doing here? Go away! You abandonned us and we don't want you around any more!"
BUTLER: He's only be gone a couple of weeks.
BAGMAN: "But he stopped blogging!!! I can't forgive him for that! Without blogging, I no longer exist!"
BUTLER: "Just because he stopped blogging doesn't mean he can't blog!"
Bagman and I just stare at Butler. It isn't logical, but it doesn make a kind of sense. We all shrug it off and I sit down, blow the dust of the computer and post some pictures since this isn't about us -- it's about Noah.

Somewhat unfocused, the nervous father
goes to suit up.
Where am I? Who turned on the lights?
Checking to see if he is ticklish.
Adding some air to make sure he is properly inflated.
Noah's first few of the world beyond the nursery
Okay! I've had enough for one day!
Happy parents - AFTER
(Brian appears sleep-deprived already)
Time to call it a day.
Okay - Now I need to get back to work. But first I'll check in on a few of my favorite bloggers.
BAGMAN: "Why bother, you twit! You've already missed 6,785 wonderful creative blogs over the last few weeks!
BUTLER: "6,785! Great! I was looking for the final factor for figuring out good investment possibilities." (He furiously crunches numbers). "Aha! BP! That's the stock to invest in!"
