Sometime after 1:00AM... and a lot closer to 2:00 AM... Mrs. Phin gave birth to a healthy baby boy, weighing in at 8-14. Other details were sketchy when we finally crashed.

Both Mom and baby are fine; I didn't think to ask about Phin.

Update: Talked to Phin, the Missus, and some very proud grandparents this evening. You can see a picture of the little guppy here.
