Yesterday morning (at 5:22) we made it happen, and our tiny girl, Anaiah, came out to join us. All are well, big brother is a very proud and excited boy, he slept through the whole thing, lucky duck. He woke up to a sunny day and a brand new little sister, and the gravity of his new station in life -- teacher, protector, entertainer. Like I said, he takes his work very seriously.
In this photo she is a mere 15 hours old, taken by my dad when he stopped by to bring vittels and his camera.
We'll be back soon, after a fair number of long naps!
