It’s a girl!

EvaAs you know, GTxA isn’t exactly a personal blog, but there are times to make an exception. :-)

My daughter Eva Vu Stern was born January 4, 2006, at 8:07 p.m., 6 lbs 11 oz. Mom, Baby and Dad are at home now, happy and healthy.

If you see any blog posts from me timestamped at 4 a.m., you’ll know why!

    Eva, welcome to Grand Text Auto! We will look forward to your various ironic and substantive contributions, here and elsewhere. By the way, you have auspiciously been born on Isaac Newton’s birthday.

    Andrew, congratulations to you and mom! I expect your two will have great success in parenting. Now at some point — after the sleepiness nights have dwindled a bit, maybe a few years from now — it would be nice to read a retrospective contrasting Babyz against baby.

    Well, I can say right off that, while some work, the development cycle was actually shorter and easier with RL baby — in fact pre-production was particularly noteworthy.

    Congratulations :) I can see the resemblance!

    Congrats, Andrew. She’s a beauty. Good work. Looking forward to the Grand Text Auto Toddler edition.

    Congratulations on this latest move in the greatest game of them all and may she always be as beautiful and healthy as she is now.

    Congratulations, and trust the force.

    Congrats, for lack of a better word. Following the dev cycle analogy, post-production of the RL baby is the hardest part. Consiuder raising a child as a iterative balancing process that lasts for years and years. Get the right memetic components going in early childhood however, and you can hope for good emergent behavior down the line.
