Mama Becca is a straight-up champion, enduring some hard labor (i.e., “all those pain and suffering“) without the help of drugs or doctors*, and pushing that beautiful baby out in just under 9 hours.
Papa Wayne is happy as a clam. Tired? You bet. But I could stare at lil cutie at day long. Wake up every 45 minutes and walk her around the house? I’d walk the world for this kid.
Goodbye, sleep. Hello, Nico!
* I can’t say enough about the wonderful place that is the Cambridge Birth Center and the gentle, caring, and utterly competent midwives and nurses who shepherded us through. Becca spent much of her time in a large bathtub, which worked wonders, and the Victorian bedroom she gave birth in was a far cry from a hospital ward. Thanks especially to Christley, Irene, Deb, Tiffany, Gretchen, and our indispensable doula, Georgianna.

Welcome to poppahood. Nico is beautiful. Listen to my 4 month old son’s favorite music here:
Honestly, ever since you showed me the sonogram I have thought of this kid as Lil Wayne. Your announcement that she’s a she has done little to dispel me of this thought. Anyway: congratulations!
Those are some really sweet tunes, Roger. Great vibes! Rocking Nico to sleep last night (this morning?) the gamelan track in particular seemed to soothe her little soul. I played it twice it was so nice.
Funny thing about Lil Wayne, Craig, is that it’s hard to think of Nico that way since — having a father also named Wayne — I was always Lil Wayne (pronounced “little,” though) growing up, indeed well before Weezy was even born. Thanks for the good words!
aw cool, congradulations!
Congratulations Wayne and welcome lil Nico!
Lovely! Congratulations on your sweet little miracle. Hope, erase that,… I am sure your lives are going to be filled with wonder and love and your bonds are going to be even stronger now. Cherish this time!!
