Congrats on the new arrival!
An american lady with a nice voice has recorded some of the Just William books for Librivox, so you could let your other children listen so that they know what to expect. :)

Oh they are read by Kara Shallenberg! She is one of the best. I have never heard those stories. I'll definitely put them on for the kids.


I've been pretty sleepy the last few days (yay narcotics), but when I am awake my brain is finally back. I dug back into Russian and FSI French. I've also watched like 2 hours of Kaamott and a few episodes of other things. I realized I understand Kaamelott way better than say, a podcast on politics in Africa or something. I feel like I am the exact opposite of everyone else. I think Kaamelott is pretty straight forward now, easier than Engrenages and much much easier than the news. I think this stems from my deep hatred of the news. I do want to look up some of the jokes I missed. For example, one must have hinged on a homophone for un élan but I haven't figured it out yet. I definitely miss a lot of the plays on words but in many cases I recognize where they are. The show is still really funny without every single joke.
By contrast, politics are never funny...

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

I was gong to post a picture but they are all weird and he won't open his eyes :)

Anyway William is here after an hour and 10 minutes of labor. I did point out that William is a bit hard to pronounce in the flow of French speech. DH says I should just call him Guillaume :)

Now I get to lay in bed with a smushy warm baby and study languages for two weeks hooray :-D

Congrats! So close to the perfect birth day. ;)
