Last night my first child was born. It was a long and difficult labor of 12 hours for my wife, only to end in a cessarion section. Archer Gail Karstaedt came into the world at 1:53 AM, just shy of 7 pounds and 20 inches. Due to some minor complications, she is being observed in the NICU, but no serious problems are expected. I’m working on less than four hours of sleep and doing thus from my iPhone, so I’ll give you more when I can. Say hello to my daughter.
