Welcome, dear Sylvia

Sylvia Jane. A pleasant surprise. Most had their bets on a boy. Most had their bets on February. Most had their bets on another hefty weigh-in. And I had my bets on another drawn-out labor lasting into the night. Our new little girl graced our lives with hers on March 2nd, weighing in at a mere (for us) 8 pounds and 1 ounce, at 11:23 in the morning, after the midwife had been at our house for less than two hours. Welcome, dear Sylvia. We already don't remember what life without you was. (Edited to warmly credit the photos to my wonderful friend Megan. Thank you so much for capturing these moments for us!)


  1. I love the pic of Max and Adam. I remember thinking, "Oh, I hope I caught that quick look they gave each other!"

  2. Horror of horrors, I did NOT credit the photos to you! I feel horrible about that. Thank you so, so much for being there and snapping the pics for us. I treasure them. You are such a wonderful friend...

    1. I hope it didn't come across that I was seeking recognition for them. I was just saying that I'm glad I caught that sweet moment between those two, well, three :) like I hoped I did. I'm glad the pictures turned out, and I SO loved being there.

  3. It certainly did not come across like that at all. I just can't believe I didn't think to credit them to you. They DID come out wonderfully, and I am so glad you were there to capture those moments for us!

  4. Welcome, indeed! Lovely, lovely post :)
