The Sun Has Come Out!

The sun came up early Sunday morning New York--3:00 AM to be exact. McBone would like to welcome the latest member of the McBone community, Isla Sun Bowler Tunick, to life outside the womb. After nine long, agonizing, excruciating months of unimaginable pain, otherwise known as pregnancy, McBone sister Krystl, without the use of painkillers, jettisoned her eight pound load into the world, where she was received by big sister Seda Moon, daddy Spencer, grandmothers Jean and Patty, and grandpa Mike. Now safely home, Isla is reportedly sleeping between periodic milk binges. By all accounts she is healthy and defect-free.
Official baby statistics (McBone certified) as compared to the actual sun:
Isla Sun
Length: 22 in.
Weight: 8 lb. 1 oz.
Actual sun
Diameter: 865,000 mi.
Weight: 4,400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 lb.
Isla, your uncle Nate would like you to know that, while I love you unconditionally, respect must be earned, and it could be decades before I ever come to really trust you. However, considering that you lack the ability to talk or walk or even hold your head up, I am willing to give you a free pass until the age of three. Just remember, as of now you've got absolutely no street cred.
No, for real though, Isla, you know I'm just jiving you. I love you like crazy, even from way over here in France. Sure hope I can meet you soon, baby girl!
