We crawled out of bed at 4:45 AM to make it to Madison in time for Juliana's parentage hearing at 9:30 AM. The judge kindly held it in her chambers, which kept Katie much more entertained than if it had been in the courtroom. ("Yes, Katie. That's case law. It doesn't have any pictures.")

And the end result is that daisy_knotwise and I are now Julie's parents in the eyes of the law as well as in spirit.



I forgot to mention this before -- and I know that a baby of 18 days is too young for this to be meaningful -- but as we rolled the stroller out of the judge's chambers, Juliana was asleep and smiling.
