Huzzah! The project that my wife Claire and I have been working on for nine months has come to fruition! Maybe I'm not releasing a song about her like Jay-Z, but I couldn't be happier to have a 6 pound 14.5 oz baby daughter. Her name is Ramona Lua Joyce Johnson, and we welcomed her into this world at 2:32 AM this morning.
She's already doing some serious daddy-daughter bonding. She napped her way through the NCAA BCS championship football game on my chest. She shares her mother's uncanny ability to be lulled to sleep by the ol' pigskin. Stay tuned for more adventures of Ramona the baby. As you might guess, she's already been the recipient of some pretty amazing crafty gifts.
