Dagny Katherine Lee, aka "Bobkat"

Born 9 lbs, 1 oz, about 5 minutes ago. 08-22-05_0950 Update: Change of plans. When it came time to sign the birth certificate, we decided to go with Dagny. I think my mom put it best:
I think your heart told you it's different for girls. There are so many set ideas for women. Your daughter needed a name that refused to be dismissed. Bobbi is cute. For a little girl. Roberta was fine for a woman. But what you gave her with Dagny is a leg up. Before she appears, her name will tell everyone who matters that she is serious. Her parents were intellectuals. She comes from a place where ideas are paramount, and part of everyday life. She will be a force. And when she shows up with a great bod and your quirky sense of humor, those qualities will be all the more attractive because of their incongruity. She may hate you through grade school, but I don't believe so. You will teach her to be proud and confident. She will have the cool name because you tell her it is so. And, whenever you think of her, or call her name, you (and everyone else) will remember how important she is. Aren't you glad you didn't have to make that circumcision choice?
I still get to call her "Bobkat" though. ;)

Congratulations! My youngest is nearly two years old, and I'd already forgotten how *tiny* newborns are.

Cutey.

Once you get some time back to work on DynAOP let me know - we are doing something around DI and it allows for things like dynAOP to plug into it.
