Kyra Joins the Family

Our baby girl was due on Friday, September 5th, and almost on cue my wife went into labor that morning. The day passed with mostly slow and uneventful labor. At the end of the night the real labor kicked in, and finally, early Saturday morning, Kyra was born. She missed her due date by less than half an hour.

We had princess Kyra at home. It was our first home birth, since her big brother was born in a hospital. Having her at home was a great experience. We were definitely more comfortable, and you can't ask for a more convenient location.

We found that her chord was wrapped around her neck as she came out, which is what probably delayed the labor. Regardless of that complication, she maintained a strong heartbeat throughout the labor and delivery, and was ready for a meal immediately. Our experienced midwives handled the situation very well, and made sure that Kyra was comfortable and free from any danger the entire way through.

Welcome to the family Kyra!

Blue Skies Ahead

Today I accepted an contract animation position over at Blue Sky Studios. I will be working on their up coming film, Ice Age 3. This is a very exciting change for the Tonymation family. In fact, princess Tonymation has yet to be born, but she is kicking with anticipation. When asked what she thought about the opportunity for her dad to work on such a fun project she said, "thump, thump... hiccup." That says it all.

Princess Tonymation will be born any day now, I will finish up my work for Reel FX on the Madagascar 2 promos, and then pack up and head North.

Life is fast and furious for the Tonymation family, but we're enjoying the ride.
