Occupy Womb Street came to an end on Edgar Allen Poe’s birtday (I share a birtday with HP Lovecraft, so I’m sensing a trend here). Introducing Correia 2.4.  10 Pounds and 9 ounces, 21 inches long, and Mrs. Correia did that all without an epidural because she is a Viking badass warrior woman.

There is a new moose on Yard Moose Mountain.

He’s a surprisingly good natured little guy, and probably the strongest baby I’ve ever seen. And that is coming from somebody who already had three ten pounders. He lifts his head, looks around, can grab stuff and hold on like a 3 month old, and even did a push up to get to a more comfy position. This is the sort of madness that happens when we have babies go to their due dates. All of our other gigantic children were early.

Mrs. Correia is fine. We’re all slightly brain damaged from lack of sleep. There is a 7 year gap between this one and Correia 2.3.

  1. Your newborn is already awesome, Larry.

  2. The mysterious visitor to Poe’s grave didn’t show up this year. Keep watching the yard.

  3. Congratulations, Correias!
    My last child was also the largest birth weight and most good-natured (as a baby). Enjoy your little guy.

  4. Fantastic! Congratulations!

    It reminds me of when my son was born (a mere 10 lbs. even). My wife had the epidural, but it wore off. She didn’t tell anybody because she didn’t want to wait while another kicked in, so when it came time to push, she blasted him out of there in 45 min. flat.

  8. Give him a Goatee and a fedora, and he will look just like you!

    Congrats. That is awesome.

  9. Now that is a beautiful child.

    He is going to be an Owen, I can feel it.

  10. Awesome!!! Congrats to you and Mrs. Viking!

  11. Congratulations and all the best.

  12. Congrats!!!

  13. Awesome Larry! Congrats to you and your wife on the new “little” Viking.

  14. congratulations mamma and pappa.

  15. Congrats Larry! He looks like a fighter. Welcome to the Monster Hunter Nation 2.4

  16. Congratulations! That is so awesome. But… 10 pounds??? WOW.

  17. Congrats Larry, on the new addition to your family. Glad to hear he is healthy and strong.

  18. Congrats Larry!


  19. WooHoo! If not a Monster Hunter then probably a line backer! Congratulations, all the best.

  20. Larry (and Mrs.),

    He’s adorable! 😀 oh, and for the record? I’ve had 3 babies with no epidural. Does that make me a “bad-ass Viking Goddess”?

  21. I can’t decide whether he’s an Owen or a Jake. He’s amazing either way. 🙂

    May the rest of his life live up to his pure awesomeness.

  22. Not gonna lie, I’m impressed.


  23. Awesome! He’ll be raising hell in no time just so he can slay the monsters.

  24. Congratulations to both of you and a WOW to your wife.

  25. Congratulations, Mr. Correia, on your newest edition to the family. Hale and healthy looking as well. That second picture screams, “I’m here to kick monster butt and chew on my binkie… and I don’t have my binkie.”

    • I was thinking more on the lines of “give me the boobie and nobody gets hurt”.

      Congrats to the parents and welcome to the world, Correia 2.4!

  26. Congratulations!

  27. Awesome! Congrats!!!

  28. Congratulations to you and your wife!

  29. That’s fantastic. Congratulations!

  30. Congrats!

    In the 2nd pic looks like he already has his War Face.

  31. Congratulations to you and the Mrs.

  32. Congrats to you and Mrs. C! Thoughts and prayers for health and a quick recovery for Mrs. C (and some sleep for you both)!

  33. Congradulations sir and best wishes to your good lady wife

  34. Man, that kid already looks like a bad ass! No baby rattles for him, get him one of those tire checker batons the truckers use. Make a good tetsubo for him.
    Seriously, you and the Mrs. do good work, God bless and congratulations.

  35. Congrats. My first son was born yesterday, and yours is fully twice his size (5 lbs even). Much as I wish he were a little bigger, I’m kind of glad for my wife that he wasn’t quite THAT big.

  36. Congratulations! A happy, healthy, prosperous and long life to him.

  37. Congratulations to the Correia family!

  38. Congrats, we are still on Instinct 2.1 and he came out at 7 lbs 9 oz. Your wife is truly a badass

  39. Congrats to you both, but your wife should seriously consider epidurals if you continue to spawn small giants that are ostensibly babies.
    If she rips your ears off. count yourself lucky. She must have an unreal pain tolerance.
    Baby rattle? He deserves one of those Australian didgeridoos’.
    And Larry, she needs a ring for this one. 11 carats total of semi-precious stones of some kind. Semi-precious, because I’d not bankrupt you. I suggest, since you live in Utah, you go find some. I’ve found huge topaz here in Colorado. You’ve got stuff there, stones you find, with matching elk teeth earrings from elk you’ve shot. will mean a lot to her.

  40. I don’t know Larry. The wee one looks a little pissed off in that second photo….

    • Yet another OWS protester tossed out in the cold -wouldn’t you be pissed?

      Congrats to Mrs C & Mr C & all the little C’s! All the Fun You’ll Have! 🙂

  41. Wow. Congratulations on the slightly undersized man.

  42. The question is who has more hair.
    And my mom is Jealous of your wife by her standards hes tiny.

  43. Congratulations!

  44. Don’t forget to get the tyke a Caterpiller hat:) and a leather biker jacket!

  45. Name that kld Ghengis the hun!

  46. Awesome, congrats!

  47. Dear Lord! What are your monthly food bills? Will go out and buy Spellbound tomorrow to help feed the lad.
    And Mrs. Viking deserves a major foot rub tonight.

  48. So Awesome. Congrats, I know this is a spectacular time. Enjoy every single second.

  49. Think we can get Kel-Tec to make him a .22 Mag Abomination for a trainer?

  50. The look on his face in #2 seems to be saying, “Why am I putting up with this? I’m not seein’ any milk here…”

    You’ll probably come down one morning and Earl Harbinger will be laying there very patiently while the kid tries to pull out handfuls of his fur…

  51. Congrats, Larry & Viking Woman.
    I’d hate to have to put shoes on that kid.

  52. You might want to check and see where Jake the Heavy was about ten months ago – I realize you are a big dude yourself and all, but holy schnitiz, man…! If she is nursing, may I suggest she just install a tap on each side to make it easier to fill the pint glass? I had a little piglet too, and somedays I felt like a keg of Guiness on St. Patrick’s Day…

    Best wishes from Texas.

    War Eagle!

    • Naw, look closely at pic#2. There is no more doubt about this kid’s paternity than there is about Angelina Joile’s puffed lip little girl.

      If you’ve ever seen Larry in person, you’ll understand. That kid is the spittin’ image of his daddy. If there was any hanky-panky it would have to be the Good Larry without the goatee from the Spock-without-a-beard-universe.

      Congratulations Larry! Welcome to Earth 2.4! You’re gonna love it here.

  53. Gratz on your newest addition Sir and Madam.

  54. Awesome! Congrats all!

  55. For your wife to provide you with such awesome children, what monster did you slay as a wedding present?

    Congratulations Correia family!

  56. Congratulations to you and the Badass Viking Warrior Woman on the new mini-Correia 2.4.

    In that second photo he looks like he’s saying “I’ve got a loaded diaper and I’m not afraid to use it”.

  57. What a strapping young lad! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Correia (and 2.1-2.3).

  58. Congratulations to the Correia clan!

  59. Congratulations to your wife and you! Wow…a 10-pounder…and I thought my son, at 9#9oz was a big guy… What a great looking lad!

  60. What a cutie! He’s gonna grow up big and strong just like his daddy! Congrats to you all.

  61. congratulations on such a beautiful baby. i seriously love your books and cant wait till the next one,,,, such a long time away. and im excited and hoping for a continuence to “alpha” to see what happens with heather and earl… again congrats

  62. Congratulations to you both!

  63. Congrats! We had our second child December 7th, so we’re knee deep in lack of sleep, but we’re dug in and just gritting our teeth and hoping for the best. Hope it goes as well for you as it has for us, lack of sleep notwithstanding

  64. And how cool is it to say that you share a birthday with John Moses Browning?

  65. Congratulations on your new son, Larry! Do you have an appropriately sized tetsubo for him? (Still suffering weapon envy here),

  66. Does this particular model have a name, or is he just gonna be 2.4 for the rest of his life?

  67. Good lookin’, big baby. All of us monsters like him have that great hairline too!

    Seriously Larry, congrats on 2.4! Glad that he and your lovely wife are doing so well.

  68. Congratulations!

  69. Born on JMB’s B-Day = +10,000 Awesome Points. 😀

    Congratulations, y’all!

  70. Congratulation to all the Correia models.

    Correia Mark 4 makes that nurse look like a midget.

  71. My most sincere congratulations to Mr and Mrs Correia on the addition to the family. I bet there won’t be any monsters hiding in his closet or under the bed.

  72. Congratulations on this gorgeous guy! We did our three naturally as well. But our largest was only 9# 14 oz. I remember the midwife telling us that our last was over 10# a week before he was born, I was happy that he came early and was only 9 11. Great job to all involved. I hope big brothers are happy too.

  73. Congratulations!

  74. Congratulations Sir!

  75. Congrats you two definitely don’t do anything half ass.

  76. Congrats! 10#9oz with no epidural… Wow, don’t ever make that woman mad because there is nothing short of parking an M1 Abrams on top of her which may stop her.

  77. Congrats!

  78. Congrats!

  79. Happy Birthday!

  80. When he starts teething .. run.
