Monster Hunter Nation

(no title)

Occupy Womb Street came to an end on Edgar Allen Poe’s birtday (I share a birtday with HP Lovecraft, so I’m sensing a trend here). Introducing Correia 2.4.  10 Pounds and 9 ounces, 21 inches long, and Mrs. Correia did that all without an epidural because she is a Viking badass warrior woman.

There is a new moose on Yard Moose Mountain.

He’s a surprisingly good natured little guy, and probably the strongest baby I’ve ever seen. And that is coming from somebody who already had three ten pounders. He lifts his head, looks around, can grab stuff and hold on like a 3 month old, and even did a push up to get to a more comfy position. This is the sort of madness that happens when we have babies go to their due dates. All of our other gigantic children were early.

Mrs. Correia is fine. We’re all slightly brain damaged from lack of sleep. There is a 7 year gap between this one and Correia 2.3.

I think he means “Your newborn is already a toddler, Larry.”

The mysterious visitor to Poe’s grave didn’t show up this year. Keep watching the yard.

Congratulations, Correias!
My last child was also the largest birth weight and most good-natured (as a baby). Enjoy your little guy.

Fantastic! Congratulations!

It reminds me of when my son was born (a mere 10 lbs. even). My wife had the epidural, but it wore off. She didn’t tell anybody because she didn’t want to wait while another kicked in, so when it came time to push, she blasted him out of there in 45 min. flat.

Larry (and Mrs.),

He’s adorable! :D oh, and for the record? I’ve had 3 babies with no epidural. Does that make me a “bad-ass Viking Goddess”?

I can’t decide whether he’s an Owen or a Jake. He’s amazing either way. :)

May the rest of his life live up to his pure awesomeness.

Congratulations, Mr. Correia, on your newest edition to the family. Hale and healthy looking as well. That second picture screams, “I’m here to kick monster butt and chew on my binkie… and I don’t have my binkie.”

Man, that kid already looks like a bad ass! No baby rattles for him, get him one of those tire checker batons the truckers use. Make a good tetsubo for him.
Seriously, you and the Mrs. do good work, God bless and congratulations.

Guest

Congrats. My first son was born yesterday, and yours is fully twice his size (5 lbs even). Much as I wish he were a little bigger, I’m kind of glad for my wife that he wasn’t quite THAT big.

Guest

Congrats to you both, but your wife should seriously consider epidurals if you continue to spawn small giants that are ostensibly babies.
If she rips your ears off. count yourself lucky. She must have an unreal pain tolerance.
Baby rattle? He deserves one of those Australian didgeridoos’.
And Larry, she needs a ring for this one. 11 carats total of semi-precious stones of some kind. Semi-precious, because I’d not bankrupt you. I suggest, since you live in Utah, you go find some. I’ve found huge topaz here in Colorado. You’ve got stuff there, stones you find, with matching elk teeth earrings from elk you’ve shot. will mean a lot to her.

Guest

I don’t know Larry. The wee one looks a little pissed off in that second photo….

Yet another OWS protester tossed out in the cold -wouldn’t you be pissed?

Guest

OWS? wash your mouth out young man. That bundle of joy is more likely to grab his Daddy’s Tsetsubo and start beating on OWS protestors in self defence.

Think we can get Kel-Tec to make him a .22 Mag Abomination for a trainer?

Guest

The look on his face in #2 seems to be saying, “Why am I putting up with this? I’m not seein’ any milk here…”

You’ll probably come down one morning and Earl Harbinger will be laying there very patiently while the kid tries to pull out handfuls of his fur…

You might want to check and see where Jake the Heavy was about ten months ago – I realize you are a big dude yourself and all, but holy schnitiz, man…! If she is nursing, may I suggest she just install a tap on each side to make it easier to fill the pint glass? I had a little piglet too, and somedays I felt like a keg of Guiness on St. Patrick’s Day…

Best wishes from Texas.

War Eagle!

Naw, look closely at pic#2. There is no more doubt about this kid’s paternity than there is about Angelina Joile’s puffed lip little girl.

If you’ve ever seen Larry in person, you’ll understand. That kid is the spittin’ image of his daddy. If there was any hanky-panky it would have to be the Good Larry without the goatee from the Spock-without-a-beard-universe.

Congratulations Larry! Welcome to Earth 2.4! You’re gonna love it here.

My most sincere congratulations to Mr and Mrs Correia on the addition to the family. I bet there won’t be any monsters hiding in his closet or under the bed.

Congratulations on this gorgeous guy! We did our three naturally as well. But our largest was only 9# 14 oz. I remember the midwife telling us that our last was over 10# a week before he was born, I was happy that he came early and was only 9 11. Great job to all involved. I hope big brothers are happy too.
