For those of you that don't obsessive-compulsively check in with the Momosphere twenty six times a day, I'm here to tell you: Linda Lee had her squidgy baby boy today. His name is Dylan Emmett and he weighed 7 pounds, 8.5 ounces according to the flickr photo posted by Linda shortly after her surgery (that's some bloggy dedication for you, expertly firing pictures up on the Internet shortly after having your innards piled on top of your belly, good god that makes me nauseous)

I've often written about my admiration for Linda; I've been reading her personal blog for over four years and I've been lucky enough to meet her in person: she is quiet, with kind eyes and a simmering sense of humor. She's the kind of person you can't help but feel immediately connected to, and it's a testament to the power of Weird Internet Bonds that I almost sympathy-barfed for her, this morning, so nervous was I about her impending surgery.

Linda's family is the kind you'd want to be next-door-neighbors with, and I'm so happy there's one more of them to add goodness to the world.

Welcome, little Dylan, into this crazy and devastating and achingly beautiful world. You have one of the best Mamas in the Universe.
