Odori Park, by Chris Watkins Odori Park - Blog


I realized that, although I’d mentioned it in my Twitter feed, I haven’t yet made notice here about one of the main reasons blog posts (and Tweets) have been sparse as of late. Allow me to rectify:

A little over two weeks ago, the Watkins family grew by 8lbs 12oz (this is not, by the way, a reference to the volume of Nutter Butters I’ve consumed in any recent period). We are now proud parents to two little Sprouts of our own, available in both toddler and newborn varieties.

Surprisingly, I have not found myself significantly more tired than before the birth (which either speaks well of our new baby boy, or poorly of my life in general). Life marches on around us (and comics will keep on coming, on schedule!), but these two guys, and their mama, are pretty much my whole world right now.

You’re not coming here for the blog posts, anyway, right? :)

Born ready for action!

    Cute little baby! Congratulations to you and the missus.

  2. SpilledInkGuy

    Congrats indeed! What a great photo! :)

  3. Chris

    Thanks, guys! He looks like he’s ready to jump into adventure, doesn’t he? :)

  4. Samantha

    Oh I will DEFINITELY come for blog posts if they are all as wonderful as this one. CONGRATS to you and your wonderful family. The world just got brighter!

  5. Chris

    Thanks, Samantha!
    (Of course, you realize if ALL of my blog posts were birth announcements, I’d very quickly have to give up everything except changing diapers…)

    Congrats! I’m late to the party, didn’t notice the blog post. So, which variant would you recommend us, toddler or newborn?

  7. Chris

    Thanks, speearr! Both varieties have their benefits. Really just depends which type of goo you like to be periodically covered in.

  8. George

    Congrats, Chris! He’s so handsome.

  9. Chris

    Thanks a bunch, George!

    Thanks, Pete! Just put him down to bed, as a matter of fact. Boy is he ever a big eater!
