She arrived and continues to amaze. She's taken to mom, obviously (who doesn't) and is sleeping much of the day away. She did manage to give a shout out to her cousin Darcie, who shares the same birthday, one year apart. Elias and Nana came to the hospital this morning and there were hugs all around. He likes her (so far) but misses mom. Pictures below.

Based on the skill of the ultrasound technician, we now believe, with more than a gut feeling, that the child growing in Karis is a girl. Of course I can say it now because I'm right, but even before Karis was pregnant, I had a sense we would have a girl next. I even had a waking-dream one day in which I told Elias something about his baby sister.

Site change to Drupal

Yet again, like the seasons looping around the calendar, it is time for me to change the underlying architecture of k2b.us. Various content management systems have gone before...and gone behind to their grave. The existing version of k2b.us is simple HTML pages and the moinmoin wiki engine. The site is now running Drupal (which may change in a matter of weeks to something else). At the moment it is void of much content: see list of photo albums.
