Queen Karla of Glacia glacial_queen
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
An email sent out to the Fandom Listserv
On January 25, 2015 (well, the Kaeleeran equivalent thereof), Karla and Warren welcomed their daughter, Kayla Kathryn Worthington, to the world. She was born weighing 6lbs and 9 oz and was 20.01 inches long. Mother and daughter are doing just fine and will be up for receiving visitors sometime next week.

Attached to the email were roughly thirty pictures, because you needed a bunch of pictures of a baby sleeping and/or being held by various people, right?

Dinah stopped bouncing along rooftops long enough to check that email.

The EEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! was heard by two cats, a dog who started barking, Oracle and Huntress, and two prospective muggers.

YAY BABY YAY BABY KAYLA YAY oh she's so pretty! So cute!!!!

Are you okay? Is Warren okay? BABY!

I'm tired as Hell but getting better. It took EIGHTEEN HOURS. EIGHTEEN. And Jono had to play FUCKING BELLS through the last, like, five of them. He lives, but only because he bailed off to the island. Smart male. Warren is also fine, but I think his expression is set permanently to pole-axed. With a side order of happy-dopey-stupid. I hear that's pretty common for new dads, tho.

Karla laughed and took another picture of Kayla with her phone to send to Priestly. She's in one now! And was wrapped in another just minutes after she was born! Best gift is best.

Congratulations! That's wonderful news. Should I send celebratory sushi and sake along?

Ender would say he was kidding... if he thought Karla would refuse.

glacial_queen

2015-01-14 10:16 pm (UTC) (Link)

Karla would have to be an IDIOT to refuse. And, contrary to Jono's current opinion of her IQ, Karla was most certainly not an idiot.

You're lucky you're in space because I could kiss you for that suggestion. And thank you! Isn't she lovely?

That was the mommy-brain talking. No newborn was actually all that attractive.

And a little bit later, a message was forwarded from Sila:

"Sleep little babyoh, sleep until you waken.
When you grow you'll see the world, if I'm not mistaken.
Kiss a lover, dance a measure, find your name and buried treasure."

Thank you so much! Here's hoping Kayla grows up to love music as much as you do, Robin!

Not that there was much fear she wouldn't, not with her Uncle Jono nearby.

The baby ... looked like a baby, yes. Cute, but a little on the red and wrinkly side.

And still somehow a miracle.

Congratulations to you,and welcome to the world to Kayla! I can't wait to meet her.

glacial_queen

2015-01-14 10:31 pm (UTC) (Link)

Red and wrinkly? Pffft, Karla was still convinced she was the most lovely of all babies born EVER.

...Karla was also incredibly biased.

As soon as I'm cleared for visitors, I'll let you know. I can't wait to introduce her to everyone. And have conversations with people that don't revolve around whether or not I've drunk my tonic yet!

I think you spelled 'Ben' wrong in the naming announcement!

Ben was a brat.

Happy birthday to her anyway :) A celebratory vase is incoming!

Sorry, Warren.

glacial_queen

2015-01-14 10:33 pm (UTC) (Link)

Maybe it will pass the one I got to celebrate your partnership in transit! I had yours COMMISSIONED, so you know it's extra nice.

Sorry, Ender.

And we still don't know Nommy's real name, so you have a few years to help me convince Warren that Ben is the best name ever.

Congrats, person I don't know with a baby even younger than mine! She's cute.

Spousal unit says I'm not allowed to say ours is cuter, because we're biased and also we didn't have to give birth to her. Besides, knowing Fandom, they'll grow up to marry each other, so we'll end up combining the genes anyway.

[Attachment: way too many pictures of a 4 month old baby wearing mittens, because of course everyone needed way too many pictures of a baby sleeping and/or being held by various people and also a giant blue reptile-dog in a quasi-military uniform.]

And belated congrats to you, person I don't know with a baby older than mine! Those are the cutest little mittens I've ever seen! Congrats on having such an adorable baby! That wasn't as cute as Kayla, but she wasn't going to include that, either. She was learning diplomacy, see? ...Just checking, though. You were showing off the baby and not the blue critter, right? Hee!

You have a lovely family.

Best,

Congratulations! She's adorable, so well done there.

I know you probably have it covered, but if you need any protection runes for her bed or blankets or whatever, I can set you up. Once you've caught up on sleep and all. :)

Hannibal smiled and texted back.

Congratulations to all three of you; I look forward to meeting her. If you let me know when you're coming back to the island, I'll make you a lovely dinner full of fowl, alcohol, and coffee.

I'm pretty sure Warren will have words for you about attempting to seduce away the mother of his new child, but whatever. Tell me more about this alcohol and coffee plan, you naughty male you.

glacial_queen

2015-01-14 10:09 pm (UTC) (Link)

This wins at best comment, Karla declared a while after the message had come in. She'd laughed so hard she'd woken Kayla, which had led to nursing, burping, and lullabies before Karla could get back to the internet. And either I had a baby or I've begun a spree as a serial kidnapper. One of those.

Also, where have you BEEN? I started teaching on the island last semester and by the time I had this baby I was visible FROM THE MOON!

"EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHH?!?!"

Could you hear that Karla? That was Momoko when she finally got the email and found out she had not been personally air-Raven'ed to Glacia for the birth.

KAYLA! HI HI HI!

I can't wait to see you! How come everyone else gets to hold you before me? Ah! EVEN JULIAN? And... Is that the one crazy-beard guy from the stables in the back of that one photo? KARLA?! YOUR GROOM GETS TO SEE KAYLA BEFORE I DO????????? I'm telling mom!


And she totally was. Just as soon as she sent the email to Karla, she was forwarding Karla's message on to her parents. While bouncing happily. She had another niece! A BABY ONE!!

RAVEN HAD BEEN BUSY HELPING KARLA DELIVER A BABY!

Hey now! He's the groom to my personal horse! That gives him all sorts of special rights and privileges! But I'm sure there will be at least a few chamber maids and the odd gardener or two who won't have a chance to hold her before you show up. Also, give your parents my love!

Billy thought the name Karla sounded familiar, but couldn't place the face. Still, he figured congratulations were in order.

From one relatively new parent to another (unless you've done this before), my heartfelt congratulations.

This is definitely new, though we've adopted a pair of older wards! But than you and congratulations to you as well!
