Flesh Of My Flesh - Julia Shannon


Pressing The Flesh is all about politics, punditry, pop culture, and propaganda, but today we set all of that aside for something we deem to be entirely more important.



I am incredibly proud and pleased to introduce you to my new little daughter, Julia Shannon. She was born today, March 17th, 2006 at 12:19PM, weighing in at 6 pounds, 15 ounces, and measuring a healthy 20 inches. Julia has an AMAZING head of hair, the biggest feet I've ever seen on a baby, and has me instantly wrapped around her little finger, of course.

Mom and daughter are both resting comfortably, and we're looking to spending some time together as a newly-expanded family.

Thanks to everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and well wishes - I'm sure Mom would love to see your comments below (feel free to post in the Comments Section) once she returns from the hospital.

There seem to be so many things that polarize us in this world, but when you look into the eyes of a young child like this, it all seems so easy. So simple. So clear.

    Congrats.
    I have three daughters (God help me) and I can't begin to imagine my life without them. Julia is an incredibly beautiful name as well. Sounds like she was born into a place filled with much love. Good for her...and you.
    Best of luck.

    Thanks for all of your wonderful congratulations - we just got home from the hospital this evening, and begin our sleepless marathon of beginning a new routine with our new family! Julia is angelic, as is my wife and our son... I'm probably one of the luckiest people I know!
