Brielle Grace Bittner, b. 2/17/09

My daughter was born yesterday afternoon. She's 7 lbs., 6 oz. (UPDATED: today she weighed in at 6 lbs. 9 oz., so she's lost a lot of weight) and 20-1/2 inches long, with lots of dark hair and brown eyes (like her mom).

Right now, she is practicing baby basics like stretching, yawning, crying and thrashing her limbs; her mom and I are practicing parent basics like hoping we can actually raise a child.
Last night turned out okay-- she was awake for a bit but she slept on top of me from 2am to 5am, while Kat caught some shut-eye. Tonight she's already been sleeping well, so it's possible she'll be up all night long. Ah well.

And as you can see, pictures... are here!

It's been nearly a month since I last posted on the blog. Mostly because of a whole bunch of things...
1) I've been Facebooking like a fiend;
2) Kat and I are getting ready for our baby;
3) I had (minor) surgery a few weeks ago and needed to recover, and
4) I've been working on a comic book pitch with an artist.

So... that's what's new here.
I'll revive my weekly comics reviews this week; there's been a lot of interesting stuff in the past month and I'm eager to talk about it. Ditto the movies coming up. I'm hoping there will be a sneak preview of WATCHMEN but you never know.
Good to be back and hope you're all still out there!
