My wife Julie gave birth to our son Patrick Harold Pierson Wed. night at 10:50pm. She labored all day (14 hours) to no avail – we had to go with a c-section. But Mom and Baby are doing just great. Got home yesterday – weblogging was not on the top of the priority list. Today, I’ve read thru some of the backlog of weblogs (back-blogs?) but I’m avoiding my work inbox like the plague. Luckily, Microsoft’s awesome benefits package include a month of paternity leave so there’s no hurry getting back to work!
