If you’re wondering why I haven’t updated my site in the last five days, here’s why: the birth of my baby boy, Eliot Andrew Baio.
Updates will be sporadic while I learn the best ways to swaddle, the physical properties of meconium, and the complete works of Dr. Harvey Karp.
Congratulations! He’s gorgeous.
Ah I knew it!! Congratulations Andy!
Congrats! We’re very happy for you. Can’t wait to meet our new nephew/cousin (or in the words of the girls, our new “smoochy-boo”).
Adorable. I love the name Eliot… you only spelled it with one ‘t’ and one ‘l’? Also, swaddling blanket thingies kind of look like straightjackets for month-olds.
And he already has his own blog – no question who the father is! Let me be the 50th to say congratulations, Andy!
Awesome! Muchos congratulations to the three of you! E.A.B. is a nice set of initials.
Congratulations from a reader…
Great news! Best of luck Andy!
If you like Dr. Karp, make sure you get his DVD. It REALLY helps with some of the techniques.
Thank you so much, everyone. It means a great deal to us. Alex: yep, one L and one T, like Eliot Ness or TS Eliot.
Congratulations! We just became parents ourselves a few months ago. The joy you already feel expands into whole new dimensions of joy as your baby develops his skills and his ability to express his individual personality day by day. Three and a half months from where you are, I’ve got a laughing, kicking, wide-eyed charmer. His toothless grin is my sunshine. More precious moments than a James Taylor tour.
Welcome Eliot and congratulations to mom and dad!
Does he play games yet?
Not yet! I want to start him off with Kaboom for the Atari 2600 and slowly work up to Unreal Tournament 2004. With luck, Half Life 2 will be shipping before he hits his teens.
That poop/joy ingredients ratio you’ve listed will hold up until solid foods are introduced. 🙂
Aww, Andy… congrats!
Congratulations to you and your family, Andy!
‘grats! Though a child is entirely impractical at the moment, moments like these can make a boy wistful. Best of luck
and you can be sure – its’ getting easier after the second one. 😉
Great looking guy you both made there – and already so hairy – wonderful. 🙂
Wait, wait… congratulations!
Congrats! You’re in for a fun ride. Our little guy’s two and it’s been a lot of work and a lot of fun. Good luck!
Excellent choice for a middle name (mine is Andrew, too!) kevin
…Particularly on the proper spelling of his first name (same as mine).
Congratulations, and from one June 9ther to another…welcome to the world…it’s a strange and amazing place to be.
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I thought as much. Congrats Andy, he’s so cute.
Definitely the most beautiful link ever posted at Waxy.org. (No offense to Ghyslain. 😉 ) 🙂
Congratulations to you both. He’s perfect. 🙂
congratulations! he is beautiful.
Congratulations. We just found out we’re having a boy and I’ve heard they’re easier to raise. Now to practice my swaddling skills.
A WINNER IS YOU!
Congratulations, Andy! All the best to your family!
WOW! His little feet look just like mine!
He’ll probably grow out of that, though.
I wish I hadn’t eaten lunch prior to reading your link to baby poo, however… Ooph.
Many congratulations to you all! Welcome to our world Eliot. Welcome to the world of parenting Andy (and Mrs. Waxy). Just pre-order HL2 for him on Amazon – that way it’ll ship automatically and he won’t have to spend his childhood wondering when it will come.
Congratulations, you guys!
It really is wonderful. Zoe will be available for babysitting in about 13 years, if you need someone…
big w00t for you guys! It seems like only yesterday when you posted the ultrasound video and announced your expectation to the interweb!
Excellent. Good news.
Congrats!!!!! What a great day for you and your wife. Enjoy!!!!
Now that you had your baby, you must FEEL GREAT! Oooh, yeah!
(brought to you by Nutri-Grain)
Lordy bejesus! Congrats!
Hurrah! Congratulations on the wee one!
you have no idea what you are in for.
Ooooh he’s a cutie! Many Congrats to you and Mrs Waxy. It’s the beginning of a great adventure. I now fully expect future posts to become increasingly concise! ps and did I notice a SBSP/Plankton reference in the analysis of the content of the new waxette?
He’s adorable. Let us know when you start him on programming 😉
ohhhh, look at his little toes! he’s darling, congratulations.
In case you haven’t already seen them, I highly recommend DaddyTypes, a blog for new fathers, and Trixie Update for the possibilities of new baby data collection.
Congrats! I just had two last October
WOOO HOOO!!! Congrats!!
Well done! Glad to hear everything went well.
Congratulations, my friend. I told the old-gang about it.
What a bonnie wee laddie! How little his toes are, and how cute he is! Best regards
Nice work, Andy! I’ve got a 7-month-old little girl myself. See, us bloggers aren’t all-work no play!
Looks great, enjoy the first few months while he sleeps alot. Then they’re awake more, and demand your attention. Mine are 2 & 4 now and are more than a full time job (one was just in the hospital overnight so I got to do my work from a laptop, while sitting in a hospital pull out chair).
Enjoy, you’re life as you knew it is over. Welcome to your new life.
Nearly one year to the day after the birth of my boy (June 8 03). It’s a wonderful time. Although I question your poop ratio, surely it’s higher than .02%?
A bewilderingly belated congratulations to all three of you, it has been one crazy summer, and it’s particularly heartening to see such good things still happen. Take care.
