I just got off the phone with my dear friend and sister in all but blood Tracey the Waitress Goddess who just informed me that she has given birth to her first child, Aurora Morrigan McTague Lorber, and I'm so happy I have tears of joy drenching my "GG Allin — American Hero" t-shirt. I don't have the words to convey how totally elated I am at this news, so when I'm less fahrklempt I'll write something coherent about it, but until then here's the info straight from Aurora's parents:
Tracey the Waitress Goddess — totally spent after twenty-six hours of active labor! — and her new baby, Wee Aurora Morrigan.
Aurora Morrigan McTague Lorber, who went by the name Blasto for the past nine months, was born this morning, Sunday June first just before one am. She was born here at home about five feet from where this announcement is being sent to you.
Aurora is 7 pounds 12 ounces and took about 26 hours of active labor to emerge - beginning Friday night, during Tracey's waitressing shift which she dutifully finished, and ending Sunday morning. Since that time Aurora's been consistently alert and rambunctious. Her parents are doing well, their bleariness more than offset by their delight.
Brendan & Tracey
Wee Aurora, less than twenty-four hours old and ready to be corrupted by Uncle Bunche. Believe me, it's gonna happen.
