I've always thought it a bit weird when law professors blog pictures of their new babies.  What do I care about your baby?  But now since it is my baby, I don't much care whether it is professional or whether you care.  Here she is with her father: 

Ethan_and_clementineClementine L. Schonfeld was born yesterday at 12:56pm and weighed in at 8 pounds, 5.6 ounces.  She is very cool.  Of course, my amazingly strong wife did all the hard work (without medication, to boot), so I'm not sure who I'm more in awe of right now.

I too echo mazel tov and remember the same feeling more than 22 years ago. Indeed, if you want to see what you have to look forward, note the content and e-mail address of the first comment to my first official Prawfs post. They just keep getting more fun (and that's not sarcastic). I hope you are as enriched as much by your children as we have been by ours.

Mazel tov and congrats! I had the same feeling about sharing pictures around the time my son was born, but then I realized he was UNIQUELY, ESPECIALLY cute, so everyone should see him; I'm sure that's also true of your daughter.

Congratulations! Is the baby going to grow up to be a non-voluntarist?
