Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s Haruna Moni Mescallado!

Filed in American Wota 1.0

My little girl was born this morning at 9:07 AM Hawaiian Standard Time, weighing 6 pounds and 12.5 ounces (or 3076 grams) and measuring 19 inches.

Haruna is the current popular baby girl’s name in Japan and of course the perfect idol from the perfect idol group, SweetS. Moni is for my Dad Ramon (nicknamed Mon) and also a concession that “Lolita” and “Riefenstahl” are perhaps not good names to saddle on a child after all.

And yes, that means we can call her Haru Moni or (while she’s still small) Mini Moni or Petit Moni.

The child is healthy and has beautiful eyes and a full head of hair. Mother and daughter are both doing well and getting used to each other. And I’ve already read the Foreword and Chapter 1 of Nabokov’s Lolita to my little Haruna, as I intend to read to her every day of her childhood and might as well start out with the best.

With the suspense of the past couple weeks now over, regular blogging should resume in the next day or so.

    Whoa! That was fast, man. I guess I’ve been absent from your blog for longer intervals of time than I’d thought. It seemed like only two months to me since you had announced the pregnancy. Well, common sense to a modern white president, so whatever.

    Congrats, Papa Moni!

    (At least now, you’ll be able to say “Who’s your daddy?” to Haruna without the cold resounding glares.)

    How soon until you sing her to sleep with Sonic Youth’s “Kotton Krown”? I always thought that would make a good lullaby. 🙂

    Whoa, congratulations! ^_^
    Maybe Mini Moni would start blogging early for us. 😀

  23. Craig says:

    If we do see pictures am I allowed to comment? 😛 LOL

  24. Ray Mescallado says:

    Thanks to everyone for your kind wishes! Mother and child are both doing well and will be hopefully coming home Friday afternoon.

    Oh, and while my wife’d kill me if I posted up pictures of the baby on a public site such as this blog (she doesn’t trust the internet, and with sites like mine, how can I blame her?), I just put up a few in the forum in the members-only section. Maybe I can convince her to publicly post a picture of Haru Moni in her Berrys Idol onesie, though!
