Get Your Stella Fix Here

I launched a new photo gallery page for those who want (or need) to see more pictures than I tend to post on the blog site. Also, I hate to keep bombarding personal email accounts with large files.

So, from now on, you can visit our online photo gallery at http://picasaweb.google.com/ChipJordan72. I also added this link to the blog's right-side Favorite Links for easy access.

I've set the gallery to allow downloading and print ordering (Mom), so let me know if something doesn't work as expected. For those who choose to download and print to a personal printer (Mom), let me know if the quality is good enough. I tried to keep the file sizes to a minimum, but I'm not sure if it's too low for good prints.

Stella Declares Her Independence

Born July 4, 2008, 8 lbs, 20.5" long

Long story short, Stella joined us Friday morning (10:22 AM) in plenty of time for the annual fireworks extravaganza and Coney Island hot dog eating contest. She surprised everyone with a head full of dark hair and Walter Matthau jowls (circa Grumpier Old Men II). After a long night of "what the hell am I doing here?" screaming at the hospital, Stella, Mommy and me came home to enjoy our first bath and Braves game.

This is your life, baby.

(oh, and here's another photo after the bath. and right after she peed on Mommy. hee hee.)

Love to all and thanks for the support. More writings later after we catch up on a little rest...
