Churchbells Ring throughout the Grand Duchy of Stollen. . .
. . . and the capital city of Krankenstadt. At 10:18 this morning, the Grand Duchess Sonja gave birth to David Paul I of Stollen, who weighed in at 7.1 pounds and measured 19 inches. Mother and baby are doing extremely well while the father is tired though relieved and content. He was the first to hold the baby, comfort him, and has already assisted with the first full check-up and bath of the grand ducal infant. It has indeed been a glorious day!!!
Thank you everyone for your warm wishes. I wonder what 'ol Irwin-Amadeus and Hives will do with this news? My guess is pack the trunks and head to Aunt Agatha's for a long weekend!
