Eoin Marcus

Cleaning and scrubbing
Can wait till tomorrow
For babies grow up,
We've learned to our sorrow.
So, cobwebs, be quiet.
Dust, go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby
And babies don't keep.

Announcing the long awaited arrival of Eoin Marcus, Cat's beautiful son.

Eoin was born on May 1, 2010 at 5:05 am. He weighed 3.520 kg. (7 lbs. 12 oz.) and was 50 cm (19⅝") long.

Cat informs us: Eoin is pronounced similar to Owen. It is the Irish form of the name Ian, which is his paternal grandfather's name and also has a very similar meaning to his last name. Marcus is his maternal great-grandfather's name.

Mother and baby are both doing well. Welcome little Eoin!
