It’s a Girl!

By | July 24, 2006

Special Edition – 07/24/2006

I’m proud to announce the arrival of our third child, Isabelle, a healthy 7 pound 15 ounce baby girl.

Mother and baby are both doing great.

In this picture she is less than an hour old.

It’s a tremendous blessing, and I hope you don’t mind me sharing my excitement with you.

In true fashion of the internet marketing opportunist that I am, I’ll be putting together a little sale to pay for this baby, which you can look forward to in the next couple days. In the mean time, I’ll be spending lots of time holding her and getting to know her 🙂

We’ll also revisit the HyperVRE topic in the next few days, or whenever Matt releases the update with the bug fixes.

As always, you can leave comments here in the blog.

Have a great day!

    Eric, thanks for sharing this with us. There is no miracle greater than the birth of a child. She is certainly sweet and I love her name. Take your time and enjoy her.

    Hi Eric:
    Maybe I’m the only latin doing some comment about the birth of your little lady. “Felicidades”, congratulations. You know, I’m a man with 5 grand sons, the older is 16, so you can see that I’m far from being a youngster. And I just wanted to tell you that creation of life is the most amazing phenomena in the whole universe. Very nice for you and your wife this expression of life by means of Isabelle. After all, we’re talking about the “Devine”.

    Congrts, to both. She is beautiful. Yet too early to predict from her looks. But she is going to be a ‘well balanced women’ and do proud to you both, some day. She has a good future. She will be a dads child. She will talk, walk, early. Will be dificult to compramise with her, because she will ‘win’ most of the time. Pl let me know the progress. Here in Sri Lanka (Asia), more than the ‘Family Planning Association’, the economy rules the family expansion programmes. Warm rgds

    Dear Eric
    Congratulation on the arrival of a beautiful baby girl in your family.
    In India the birth of a baby girl is considered as the arrival of the goddess of Wealth
    ( Called as Goddess Laxmi). I wish, your new baby bring more and more wealth and happiness to you and your family.

    Congratulations Eric!
    I remember the excitement of it all.. and yes, also in true internet opportunist fashion, I got her a piece of internet property, her own real estate (domain name), even before I got mine. Blogging her adventures now serve as an amazing and priceless gift to her in future.
    Cheers to you and your family!

    now that you have a new baby,
    you’ll have to adjust to all the crying,
    bottle drinking,
    and occasional temper tantrums!

    …just don’t do it
    in front of the baby.

  27. Diane

    Oh, Isabelle!
    A beauty that touched the hearts of many,
    within just hours of her birth!
