Um. I have my daughter now.

And you know. I've seen shooting stars. Bright rainbows. Northern California. Paris. I've seen some amazing things with my eyes, but nothing prepared me for the feeling of looking into the eyes of a breath-takingly beautiful daughter quite as elegant as her. She's amazing. It was really hard to place a name that fit her beauty. Her special sparkle. It took us a couple days, but we found one that suits her perfectly.

Her name is Sylvia.

She was born Saturday morning (5.23.09) at 3:23am.

8 pounds 10 ounces.

Daddy's dark hair. Long, curly eye lashes. Bright blue eyes.

I couldn't be feeling more grateful. We are home and healthy and well.

Smooth and fast delivery with zero complications.
