Kaira Azure

Chris,my friend,colleague,and host of this site,recently welcomed his firstborn,Kaira Azure,into the world. Kaira was born at 2:19 am on the 26th,weighed 5 pounds,11 ounces,and was 32.5 cm tall.

Chris and Kaira

Chris and I have known each other and worked together for three years,and I’ve never seen a guy more prepared to be a father than him. He and Katrina,his wife,will be moving to Colorado after he’s finished with his enlistment (18 days before I finish mine),and he’s already checked all the boxes to get him there. He’s a completely thorough individual,and I know he’ll be an excellent father to Kaira,making sure she develops into a well rounded lady.

I’m very happy for both Chris and Katrina and glad they’ll be able to go home from the hospital with their new addition today. I saw her at the hospital briefly tonight and she’s such a sweet looking little girl,with dark hair like her dad. She kept her eyes closed for the most part while I was there,and I got to witness her distinct aversion to the cold (unlike anywhere else around here,the hospital is air conditioned) when Chris pulled back her little cap to show me her hair.

Congrats to the new mom and dad,and a hearty welcome to little Kaira.

A Note

I stood a 24-hour duty post yesterday,and as such,I’m struggling to stay awake. I’m going to take a mulligan on my 1000 word per post goal tonight and rest up. Look for the Weekend Edition here around noon Pacific time on Sunday.
