You Can't Hurry Love

Owen Gregory Cactus-Fish arrived at 3:55 the afternoon of February 10th. He was ushered into the world to the strains of You Can't Hurry Love performed by Phil Collins. Ironic since there isn't an artist Beth hates more.

Owen weighed in at 9 pounds 3 ounces and is perfectly, wonderfully healthy. Beth is doing well. I am only slightly traumatized.

Thanks to all for the wonderful wishes. More details will follow.

Posted by: Hygiene Dad at February 10, 2008 9:44 PM

I have checked both your blog and Beth's all weekend, hoping that Wally would know what was good for him, take his mother's advice and hurry up.

I absolutely love the name Owen Gregory! I'm so glad you guys didn't actually name him Wally.

I can't wait to hear all about Owen's birth and see the pictures I know you took! For now, though, I'm just sending giant hugs to all and wishes that everyone manages to rest a bit.

I'm so excited that you three are now a wonderful and healthy you four.

Congratulations, Chris. Please tell Beth I said the same. :o)

ZOMG!! That is so cool! Congratulations to you and Beth.

This occasion is special to me for two additional reasons that you don't even know: My son Joshua Evan was born on Feb. 9th (22 years ago) so I will always remember your sons birthday. Second, my step-son is Evan Gregory (which is soooo close to Owen Gregory, you'd think we collaborated!). So good timing and good naming!! w00t!

Love to all the Cactus-Fishes.

Congratulations, Chris! Please pass on my good wishes (along with those of the 4000 other readers here) to Beth and Miabean, and my official welcome to wee Owen Gregory. I can't wait to see photos, etc.

P.S. Hope you're slightly less traumatized today. Look at it this way: You still have a few years to build up those college accounts. For now, smoke a (fake) cigar and enjoy the blessings of your life.
