Frankly, since I'm not the father, I'm having a hard time getting all excited about this news.....

I'm sure she is a regular member here (you never know!), so Congratulations on your new baby Giada!

LOL Just flip that for my daughter's weight. Nancy weighed 8 lbs. 5 oz. I was lucky she wasn't bigger--my mom weighed 10 pounds at birth.

My last one was 6 pounds and dropped to 5lb 5 oz.... that was scary.
The boys were both 7-3.
I suppose I was pretty lucky!

Well, I'm pretty certain that mom will want daughter to be a chef as well.

Mom's usually want their daughters or sons to be happy and to pick a profession that does just that - - - whether it follows in their footsteps or not.

I can assure you the first thing she wants her daughter to be is asleep all night!

True, but I could just picture her in her preteen years wanting to help mom in the kitchen.

Most parents, especially dads, want their kids to follow in THEIR footsteps. It happened with Tiger Woods' dad, Tiger himself and now with his own son.

Kids usually go; "Mom or Dad, when I grow up, I wanna be just like you!". But we'll see what happens when she reaches about 7 or 8.
