My pride and joy

My two beautiful girls, Janis, with her mommy Luchia aka IamNotaKochSucker
Our little family together
and more . . .
  Janis was born on Tuesday the 29th of October at 8:23am. She was six pounds and fourteen ounces of bliss at the time of her birth. I've taken the last week or two off from writing while her mommy and I have been adjusting to this lovely little new member of our family, but I hope to start writing again with a fury starting tomorrow.

   I invite you to join us as we welcome my darling little girl into our world . . .

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
