Luna Violet Bemis


At about 7PM on Monday night, Jess started feeling funny; around 10, we started timing contractions. At 11:30 we checked into the hospital, and at 12:35 on Tuesday morning, Luna was born. I'll be back talking about movies soon, and I hardly feel qualified after three days of fatherhood to get all philosophical. But I had to share. Isn't she beautiful? Isn't life strange and wonderful?

Wow, congrats my man.

Lovely baby, lovely name.

Man, do I feel old.

(And no, I wasn't planning on posting congrats in haiku form until the first two lines worked out that way. But when you're off to that kind of start, you may as well finish it. Seriously, congrats and good luck. We'll understand if you don't have much time for movie blogging anymore.)

She's gorgeous! Wow I can't wait to come and meet her. Congratulations, brother.

Bemis said...

Many thanks for the kind wishes (and impromptu poetry).

Hi, I found your blog through Dr. Criddle's and I really like it: you have a wonderful open mind on films and a lovely little daughter to boot!

Best wishes,

Jenny

Congratulations on your new daughter! You're not planning to use that picture of David Cronenberg on the birth announcement, are you?

Nah, I'm saving it for the sweet 16 party.

The way Sweet 16 parties are going, you're going to have to save a whole lot more than a picture for it.

Aww! She is gorgeous.

Congrats Andrew!
