       Of course according to zeno's paradox, he (she) can be half born, then three-quarters born, then 7/8 born, but can never actually fully be born (poor mommy!)

       Some mothers are like that .... just can't let go ....

       Congratulations! Sorry, can't think of anything witty.
nineteenthly, Jul 18 2008

       I just noticed people were bunning this.   

       Not that I don't think birth is amazing, as an idea it's a bit baked, but I don't want to offend.
MisterQED, Jul 18 2008

       Maybe we should start putting their names down at birth.

       prediction: late night postings will increase.
po, Jul 18 2008

       Prediction: late night postings will be of erratic quality, display poor spelling and grammar, and show an obsession with counteracting the effects of sleep deprivation.

       Congratulations on the arrival of mini-ze!
imaginality, Jul 18 2008

       8th - will there ever be a 9th?
po, Jul 18 2008

       "the die is cast" -- shouldn't that be "extruded"?   

       Congratulations. And thanks for letting us know. A bun, no longer in the oven.
baconbrain, Jul 18 2008

       Et tu, zeno? Congrats to you and yours.
lostdog, Jul 18 2008

       Hooray! More babies! Well done [zeno] and many felicitations. Mine came home from hospital last night. I slept between three and six.
wagster, Jul 19 2008

       three and six people? that's a crowded bed!
po, Jul 19 2008

       Sleep, whenever you can... and don't equate screaming (of child, at least) with the end of the world. They're pretty robust, sometimes you can leave them to get on with it.   

       Oh, and don't listen to any advice, especially not from people you've never met. Congratulations.
david_scothern, Jul 19 2008

       Slept between 3 and 6, I know the feeling. Sleep deprivation is countered by happiness.   

       Thanks everyone.
zeno, Jul 19 2008

       Congrats! (Don't we need 2 1/2 buns to symbolize Mom, Dad and Baby?) +
xandram, Jul 20 2008

       Aargh! More babies! 'Not the happy, cuddle club'? I fear that there has been far too much happy cuddling going on and the 'bakery tagline is becoming increasingly redundant.
DrBob, Jul 21 2008

       Don't worry, [DrBob]; just wait until the bundles of joy are old enough to type in their first solecism, and the straight-edge razors will be out in no time ;)

zeno, Oct 18 2007

       You had time to spare, Eh?
Ling, Jul 21 2008

       I think the title should read "Alea jacta est + 9 months".   

       Congrats on the new little baker.

Hearty Congratulations

       BTW, Merriam-Webster Online dictionary suggest " An entry has been found" ...which is clearly the case.
Wikiwords suggests that "The Dice have already been tossed".. Yup!, betting on Monopoly doesn't help either.
Enjoy the linked definitions!.
