C'est une fille!
Felicitations to the new little princess in the kingdom! She added herself to the population of Paris last evening around 7:30p - the first baby to be born to the Palais de l'Élysée*!
Unfortunately, her father, Nicolas Sarkozy, was unable to meet her upon her arrival, showing up a handful of hours later. His presence was required assisting in the "birth" process of a fiscal policy for our rag-tag lot of countries known as the European Union. Along with Germany's president, Angela Merkel, their shared labor will hopefully keep us from dissolving into financial ruin. (Good luck with that, by the way! We're all on pins and needles waiting to see if we sink or swim. We don't care if the financial plan is a boy or girl - we just want it to be healthy.)
All happy wishes to the newest member of the First Family!
As she gets settled into the palace, we'll be putting a few little things aside for her first trip to Provence. (Although, we're pretty sure that baby will be dressed in black - like all fashionable young ladies in Paris.)
