Congratulations to Eric and Debra Eisenstein! Brand new baby girl arrived today, via
UPS I think. Maybe we'll have a naming announcement up on Eric's blog
or on the official Eisenstein family web site
Speaking of babies, Maddie informed us tonight that if she does decide to have kids someday (which is in doubt, because "it will hurt"), she has it all figured out. If it's two girls they'll be named Kate (after her sister) and Olivia (after her best friend's little sister). Two boys would be Tom and Johnny. A girl and a boy would be Tommy and Kate. She then told Joy that she wouldn't be happy with two boys, the optimal configuration being a boy and a girl.
She told me a few weeks ago that if she's going to have two kids, she'd rather do it at the same time and get it over with. Twenty years from now, you may be able to drop off your eggs somewhere and then pick up your babies several months later, so this might not be a problem.
