Joining the Ranks of Martha Graham and Salvador Dali

The lovely Sage Alexandra made her way into the world at 1:31pm on May 11, 2007 weighing in at 8 lbs even and measuring 21 inches long -- making room for 8lbs and 21 inches worth of spicy tuna rolls.

Mom and family are doing well, and apparently, I hear little Sage is a sleeper.

Liz wanted me to thank everyone for all the support and well wishes. She'll be back shortly to fill your blog readers with exciting tales of labor, delivery, and beyond.

I can practically hear the collective *slap* on the foreheads from people crying, "why didn't I think of such a beautiful girl's name?" Even better, you didin't name her Sayge. Or S'Age.
