…or, as his birth certificate will soon say, Desmond Shearwater Ji Won Chung-Finger (Desi for short).
Desmond came into this world early this morning, at 6:18 AM to be exact, after 13 hours of labor. He tipped the scales at an imposing 8 pounds, 7 ounces, and is a full 21 inches in length. Both Daisy and Desi are happy and healthy and we anticipate them coming home on Friday morning.
It has been wonderful meeting Desmond and getting to know him. Daisy and I couldn’t be happier…wish us luck!
Congrats! Now the fun starts…
CONGRATS!!!! What a cute little boy!
Desmond is just beautiful and I fully admit to being biased. Can’t wait to meet him in person.
Congratulations!!! So cuuuuuuuuuute!!!
That’s my nephew!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats!!! He’s adorable. I hope you are all very, very happy. You’ll do great . . . it’s so much fun! Hardest job you’ll ever love!

“Hello to Desmond”
🙂 🙂 🙂
Congratulations and all the very best!!!!!!!!!!!
13 hours of labor sounds a bit rough, so Daisy and Desi are surely quite exhausted.
Brace yourselves for a wild ride – and good luck … er, I meant “enjoy”!
I am very happy for you and it is also good to know my son will have a good friend and companion in NY when he flies over in say 15 years or so to get himself some *true* warblers!
YAY – now get back to the blog and stop messing around 😉
Hi Desi! Huge congratulations to the three of you and that is one awesome name.
You and Charlie share a child’s birthday – Em reached sweet 16 just as Desi was born. Gotta love those sagittarians.
He certainly is a handsome boy.
Congratulations, Corey and Daisy! What a handsome addition to our family. We can’t wait to meet him!
Thanks, everyone! Back to hospital momentarily…will pass on everyone’s well-wishing.
Oh, and seeing as this is Thanksgiving I will be thankful that this isn’t how we had our baby (though it is quite a story!).
Corey – Daisy -CONGRATS!!!
You know, most people have a turkey on ‘thanks giving’…
but Desi is a looker!
Congratulations to you and Daisy, and welcome to the newest birder in the family. Wishing you many wonderful years of happiness and love.
What a beautiful child. How wonderful that the 3 of you have found each other. And just think – how you will love showing him the world of birds. Congrats.
Hi Corey & Daisy,
Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy. I wish you many years of happiness.
Welcome to the world. It is an amazing wonderful and wonder filled place. If I can pass on one piece of advise to you that would be to remember to always look at the world through the eyes of a child, even long after you’ve stopped being one. A constant state of curiousity and wonder about the world will serve you well, and as important, will serve the world well also.
Please pass on my congratulations to your Mom and Dad
Corey & Daisy – (This is N8’s wife). Just wanted to say congrats!! So happy for you both! He is beautiful. Another birder to add to the clan…maybe he can even get his first life bird looking outside the hospital window! : )
Congrats Corey and Daisy! He’s beautiful. I can’t wait to meet him!!!
Congrats man! I’m so thrilled for you guys. I can’t say enough great things about being a dad and sharing it all with Beth. I’m not sure who deserves more praise – you for choosing Shearwater as part of his name or Daisy for letting you. So awesome.
Big congrats! I can’t believe you got Shearwater in his name… A+ for that move.
Beautiful Baby Boy! Congrats Daisy and Corey
congrats uncle Corey I am extremely excited to see Desi’s face and to see you and daisy as parents.. i love you oh so much and cant wait to see ya for Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Daisy and Desi.
hey guys, congratulations!!! your baby is adorable. I can’t believe you guys did it… it must’ve been an awesome experience… now is the time to negotiate who is gonna be changing diapers. lol…
Deepest congratulations to all three!
Congratulations! The thanksgiving declarations will be pretty easy and obvious this year, I guess 🙂
Congratulations Corey & Daisy! If Desmond is interested in doing the CBC this year, we will waive the $5 fee!
I forgot to mention, see also:
Er, Corey, if you REALLY managed to get Shearwater onto his birth certificate, you are truly the most AWESOME birder ever – never mind Wilson, Audubon and the lot.
And as a matter of fact, I find Shearwater does have a nice ring to it, much like Dickspiza or Willet.
All the best to you both and your new baby. May the years ahead be filled with much happiness and may God bless your family with a lifetime of joy.
Late to the party as always, I wish you the immeasurable joy of watching your unique creation grow and thrive. He is BEAUTIFUL, perfect. And you and Daisy have just grown another chamber on your hearts.
Thanks again everyone!
We’re loving our little family…
