Baby Squee!

Cory Doctorow and his wife, Alice, came by with their baby-of-many-names and I got to hold the baby! :D :D :D. (And tell his wife the anecdote about body piercings.) I had to finish line-edits/copy-edits and get them in the mail first thing this morning so that they will be in NY on Monday, which is when they're due, so I missed his book launch at the Merril Collection. But! Baby! Squee!

The baby is three months old and she is absolutely adorable and not in the slightest as hyper as Cory. While it can be argued that it's a fate he deserves, Alice seems perfectly reasonable and calm, and doesn't :D.

Okay. Words now.

ETA: The whole store's collective brain and general competence goes south when small children cross the threshold in strollers or the arms of their parents. It's not just me. Honest.

Awww. I exercised massive restraint in NOT coming in after spending rather too much at: Lee Valley and MacFab. I wanted to come in, but sicne I've never visited without exceeding my planned budget, I couldn't. But ... baby!...

I MISSED THE BABY!!! AUGH!!

I'm totally, utterly jealous. I've seen pictures, and she's so very cute.

Yeah, I also adore holding babies *smile.*

I am glad you got to hold her and enjoy her (at this point) lack of hyper personality *grin.*

I am sure she'll make up for it later . . .

Sorry to have missed you at the launch! I came a little late, which meant I was stuck at the far back of the hallway for Cory's Q&A (missed the reading), but that worked out well because that was where the baby was. Very cute indeed! ^_^

Chris said Cory's mother was there and was holding the baby for most of it, and I hope someone took pictures.

I love babies. The only good thing about the last year at the evil job were all the babies my co-workers had.

I adored them even when I had no intention of ever having one. And now that I have kids, I adore them because I can give them back :D.
