|The much anticipated Nova Rolfsrud Wilson, finally getting a chance to stretch her legs.|
|She's fine, her Dad says.|
|Lynn Wilson with his first born.|
Nova Rolfsrud Wilson is here!
Born today at 4:30 p.m. CST, at Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore, she weighs 6 lbs 12 oz, is 20 inches long and scored a 9 on her APGAR -- which is a really good score, Grandpa says.
Yes, Nova is an unusual name, and just may have something to do with her father being a NASA Research Astrophysicist.
Competition among the grandchildren has already emerged. Kaia, the first one, was born exactly on her due date. Nova beat that by one day!
Mother Briggs is doing fine, Steve said. He had no idea about Dad.
A nova is a cataclysmic nuclear explosion on a white dwarf, which causes a sudden brightening of the star. Novae are not to be confused with other brightening phenomena such as supernovae or luminous red novae. Novae are thought to occur on the surface of a white dwarf in a binary system. If the two stars of the system are sufficiently near to one another, material can be pulled from the companion star's surface onto the white dwarf. A nova is caused by the accretion of hydrogen onto the surface of the star, commencing a runaway fusion reaction. -- Wikipedia
