Danica Agnes Maus

Posted by on August 23rd, 2005 at 12:12 pm


Thanks to everyone for the kind emails and comments on the birth of my daughter.  Several folks have asked for photos and more details…so here goes:

Danica Agnes Maus (we call her Dani)
9lbs. 5oz. and 21" long

It was by far the most intense experience of my life.  The only thing I can even compare it to is the final laps of a long, hard crit…with a lap counter that seemed to never budge.

… and like bike racing, the reward far outweighs the effort…don’t you think?

    Thanks Todd. Juli was like a valiant racer that just keeps launching attacks just when you think they can’t possibly have anything left.

    Was wondering when you’d post that special gem!
    She sure looks like you, Jon Jon. Adorable.

  • […] We started out riding with everyone up and over the Burnside Bridge but since Juli hasn’t ridden since before Dani was born and I had to stop a few times to tend to the little one, we were left behind. No worries though, there was still plenty of hot cocoa and cookies waiting for us at Laurelhurst Park. […]

  • […] Today we’re having a party for my daughter Danica. It’s hard to believe but she turned one year-old last week. Since I announced her birth and her first-ever bike ride on this site, I thought I’d share a few photos of her first bikey year. Here’s Danica and her sister Eleni crashed out in the trailer with the Fremont bridge in the background. […]
