Harry, with doting grandfather
Originally uploaded by perlmonger.
from a long weekend in Norwich inspecting [livejournal.com profile] kalunina's newborn moosebaby Harry John, seen here being doted on by his grandfather (as opposed to me; as a semi-detached grandparent, we've decided that I'm GrandPete).

He's a thoroughly charming child, and I spent entirely too little time communing with him. This will be addressed soon, but being separated by a five hour drive does cramp things somewhat: I want some topological adjustment that renders Bristol and Norwich closer on demand.

[livejournal.com profile] kalunina‘s as yet unnamed baby moose, Harry John, emerged into our world at just after 2am today in Norwich, weighing 7lb 1011oz, according to his grandfather who was there and cut the cord. Mother and son are well, and [livejournal.com profile] ramtops and I will be venturing spinward for the weekend to say “hello” and do what we can to help with this start of a new beginning.

Seems appropriate to slightly paraphrase Kurt Vonnegut at this point:
“Hello, $bubbamoose. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, baby, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, baby—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”
