By The Way...

I er... had the baby.  In case you totally rely on this blog for all things Kristen.

It was 6 months ago today so it seems like the right time to post this. 

Vivienne Ripley Rutherford was born on September 8, 2009 at 12:43 a.m..  She weighed 7 lbs exactly and measured 19 inches.  And, yes, Ripley is from Alien. We figured if she wants to be a fancy lady she can be Vivienne Rutherford and if she wants to be - I don't know - a race car driver or something - she can be Ripley Rutherford.

I have been having the love affair of the century, so forgive me for not blooooooooooggggggggiiiiing more.

Here she is at about 3 days old:

...and here she is a couple of weeks ago:

She's totally awesome. 

You know, they tell you to sleep when the baby sleeps, but nobody tells you that what you will want to do when the baby is sleeping is STARE AT THE BABY.

Which sounds like a delightful idea! I'm off to go do that very thing.
