Thanks, aurora. Michelle is, of course, extraordinarily beautiful. No doubt she is also very smart and has an engaging personality.

Congratulations, Bill!

From my experience, children can provide many haiku/senryu moments.

No doubt she is beautiful and smart, but the main thing is that she's healthy.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful news.

Thanks so much for those comments, which I've read between trips to the hospital. She's even more beautiful in daylight.
