Welcome to Planet Earth, Arrena.

Two weeks and she has already conquered this little patch of dirt. Imagine what she could do if unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace? I think it wise that we keep her under wraps for a little longer.

For those of you who don't know, Arrena Ruth graced us with her presence on Sunday, August 7, at 4:33 am (5 days late, thank you). She weighed in at 7 lbs 4 oz, 18.5 inches long. A tiny thing. All the better to catch the big people off guard.

The first two weeks have been amazing. The usual lack of sleep, growing mountain of diapers, eardrum-piercing screams. She has thrown everything at us and we've taken it like champs. Arrena is starting to realize these taller creatures - the food-bearing one and me, the one who really shouldn't sing - we aren't going anywhere. If her plans to seize control of this little chunk of space rock are to come to fruition, she's going to have to deal with us.

Frankly, we don't stand a chance. The best we can do is hold her off and give the rest of the world a chance to prepare.

Mom and I will try to keep you all updated on Arrena's progress, perhaps give you an idea how much time you have left. It might be a good idea to get your affairs in order.

Hello Arrena

Welcome to the world. Maybe we will have time for shopping before you take over the world.

Your Proud Godmother
