Happy news

I have one son with an American accent, another who was born on the 4th of July, and now a daughter who entered this mortal coil during the President’s inaugural.* Is there no escape from the clutches of Uncle Sam?

Pictures etc. at Beckynews.

*Mary Elizabeth is British by descent and American by birth. At 18 she will have to choose between the two. The stars are aligned against Blighty, I fear….

  1. Congratulations, Ronan and Becky! Allison and I are so happy for you. I hope that things went well with the delivery. As for the inauguration day, she will only have to worry about that every four years, like being born on a leap year.

    Ronan, good news for you, by the way: she will have to decide much earlier than 18 between UK and USA, as she will need a passport to travel back to England when you all visit. Don’t forget, Allison’s brother was born in England and her parents thought the same thing–that he would have to decide at age 18. But since both parents were American (instead of one American and one Brit) his parents had to decide for him once they moved away from England because they had to get him a passport to travel. Once the passport decision was made, that was the end of the discussion, effectively. Of course, that was in the 1970s, so perhaps some of these regulations have changed in the meantime.
